Caldwell has just two losing seasons in his seven seasons as a head coach, going 2-14 in 2011 when Colts quarterback Peyton Manning missed the season and finishing 7-9 in 2015, his second season in Detroit after making the playoffs in his first season.

Zach Zenner had a 13-yard touchdown run for the Lions (6-10), who have won four straight against their NFC North rival for the first time since 1982-83.

Joe Philbin is serving as the Packers' interim head coach for the remainder of the 2018 season.

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.

Matt Prater, seen here earlier in the season, threw a touchdown against Green Bay. Rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the team in receiving with three catches for 43 yards.

The Packers now know their full list of opponents for the 2019 NFL season and will have the 12th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. It was a surprising decision for Rodgers to play in the final two games, despite his excellent performance against the New York Jets last week.

The Packers quarterback left Sunday's game against the Lions in the second quarter after suffering a head injury and was replaced by backup DeShone Kizer.
