  • Lions fire Caldwell after four seasons

Detroit Lions rookie tight end Michael Roberts is unexpectedly inactive for the team's season finale against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

The Lions' Matt Prater responded with a 28-yard field goal of his own to knot the count at 3-3 with 3:03 to go in the first period. The Packers won only three games with Hundley starting in place of Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay, without several banged-up players, gave away its chances to close with a win by turning it over three times in the first half to help the Lions lead 20-3 at halftime. There won't be any playoffs this year for either side and while that's a surprising turn of events for Packers Nation, it's an all too familiar refrain here in the Motor City. Green Bay got on the scoreboard first for a 3-0 advantage thanks to Crosby's 41-yard field goal with exactly 5:00 showing on the clock in the opener.

Stafford threw a go-ahead, 54-yard pass to Kenny Golladay.

Score is 20-3 Lions at the half.

Brett Hundley was a disappointing 14-of-24 for 174 yards. He was replaced by Joe Callahan late in the game.

Stafford finished with 27.12 FanDuel points, ending up as the second-best fantasy QB of the week.
