  • Catharthsis Lions work out their frustrations on Packers 35-11

Sweeping the season series from the Packers, finishing with a winning record (9-7), going 5-1 in the division, and just finishing an otherwise disappointing season on a positive note heading into the offseason were all goals this team talked about this week.

Ameer Abdullah's 7-yard run accounted for the Lions' final touchdown. The Packers won only three games with Hundley starting in place of Aaron Rodgers.

Later, the Lions make a field goal and the game is tied at 3 at the end of the first quarter.

Watch the top plays from the Week 17 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions.

Matthew Stafford threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns with a passer rating of 140.4.

Brett Hundley threw 17-yard TD pass and 2-point conversion to Randall Cobb to pull the Packers within 16 early in the fourth period.

In the second quarter, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix misses the tackle on Lions Kenny Golladay.

The ball bounced off Brown's helmet and Lions linebacker Paul Worrilow recovered.

The 3,000th completion came on a five-yard pass to running back Tion Green in the third quarter of the season finale against the Green Bay Packers.

Prater tacked on a 30-yard field goal before the half ended. He even caught a two-point conversion pass from Golden Tate to cap off a 35-11 blowout win to move Detroit to 9-7. Tate eluded cornerback Davon House near the 10-yard line to complete the 71-yard play. That relative feat, along with a 36-28 record and two postseason appearances over four seasons in Detroit, may not be enough for Caldwell to keep his job. Green Bay placed LB Nick Perry (ankle, shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday.
