One half of football is in the books as the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions wrap up the NFL’s regular season on Sunday night.
Green Bay held a slim one-possession lead through two quarters thanks to Mason Crosby making three first-half field goals. Meanwhile, the Lions offense showed flashes of being able to move the ball on this stout Packers defense, but couldn’t capitalize on the Sixers, instead settling for Green Bay-like field goals. Detroit nearly put the game away with a play-flicker touchdown to Jameson Williams, but a holding penalty negated the scoring play. On the defensive side of the ball, Lions rookie Aidan Hutchinson continues to make his case for Defensive Rookie of the Year as he has already racked up two sacks on the night.
After the Seahawks defeated the Rams in overtime earlier Sunday, the Packers would punch their ticket to the playoffs with a win while the Lions were eliminated from postseason contention. Now, it will be either Green Bay (with a win) or Seattle (with a Packers loss) that will send the NFC’s No. 1 seed to San Francisco on Super Wild Card weekend. 7 in a row.
Tune in to Sunday’s live blog as we wait and see who it will be in the end. Below, you’ll find instant analysis and real-time highlights of all the top plays.
