So, with Caldwell likely being fired, Lions general manager Bob Quinn will have to determine who the next Detroit Lions head coach will be.

On Sunday, the game began with a successful onside kick by the Packers' Mason Crosby and the two teams traded possessions from that point on.

Detroit's Darius Slay blocked a field goal with 1:15 left and teammate Nevin Lawson recovered the ball and returned it 77 yards for an apparent TD, but it was negated by Slay being offside and that quieted a roaring crowd. After Green Bays Donatello Brown allowed a punt to hit him, the Lions recovered to set up Staffords 3-yard pass to Marvin Jones to put Detroit up 17-3. Detroit leads at the break, 20-3. People are going to Ford Field to see the Green Bay Packers play the Lions, so we're going there to win.

The Packers played without many of their best players, and further hurt their changes with three turnovers in the first half.

Once again, Brett Hundley struggled. “We just stopped ourselves.”.


Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, in the last year of his contract, had three sacks for the second straight week to give him 12 this season and 44 in his five-year career.

According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, that's exactly what tight end Michael Roberts did on Saturday.

Just before the interception WR Geronimo Allison injured a finger on his right hand. CB Damarious Randall, TE Richard Rodgers, G Jahri Evans and RB Aaron Jones were also inactive.

The Lions entered the game as 7-point favorites.
