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.

The passing game clicked despite a depleted receiving corps, with Kenny Golladay missing the relatively meaningless game with a chest injury.

Based on Green Bay's third-place finish in the NFC North, the last two teams to be locked into next year's slate were Carolina and San Francisco, based on their third-place finishes in the NFC South and NFC West, respectively.

Zenner finished with 93 yards on 21 carries.


After Stafford hit Brandon Powell with a 41-yard toss, the Lions added more on a fake field goal that saw Prater hurl an 8-yard scoring strike to wide-open tight end Levine Toilolo for a 14-0 lead at the 10:36 juncture of the second stanza. He was sacked early in the first quarter and his helmet knocked off. Rodgers stayed in the game for two more series before heading to the locker room for evaluation.

The Packers were also without receiver Davante Adams, who missed practice this week with a knee injury.

After that score Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers went to the dressing room with an injury and DeShone Kizer came on to call signals.

Prater threw a near flawless touchdown pass while faking a field goal during the second quarter of Detroit's game against the Packers in Week 17.
