Thanks to a fake field goal and a touchdown pass by kicker Matt Prater, the Detroit Lions thrashed the Green Bay Packers 31-0 in their National Football League battle at Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon.

Home opponents: Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings.

Rodgers finishes the season with 4,416 passing yard with 25 touchdowns and two interceptions and a 97.8 passer rating.

The Lions scored the first touchdown of the game during the first quarter, bringing the score to 7-0.

The Bucs were in the sixth spot heading into the final day, but they'll jump one slot thanks to the Lions, who went into Green Bay and destroyed the Packers to move them to 6-10.

Matt Prater, seen here earlier in the season, threw a touchdown against Green Bay.

DeShone Kizer is in for the Packers.

Rodgers suffered two concussions in 2010, the same year the Packers won the Super Bowl.

Detroit scored again as time wound down until intermission on a 13-yard gallop by Zach Zenner with 1:06 showing on the clock. The Saints have clinched a first-round bye in the playoffs, so depending on their fate in the postseason, the Packers would also have a pick between 28 and 32 in the opening round.
