Packers dominated in season finale; Rodgers knocked out of game early
Aaron Rodgers was knocked out of the Green Bay Packers' final game and the rest of the team's performance was very poor in a 31-0 loss to the Detroit Lions at home.
Falling behind early, the Packers could not sustain any scoring drives. They were forced to punt seven times and were dominated in time of possession.
Rodgers left after the conclusion of the first quarter after throwing just five passes. Medical personnel evaluated him for concussion symptoms and he never returned.
Backup quarterback DeShone Kizer was off the mark, going 16-35 along with an interception.
The Lions controlled the game from the beginning and even tricked the Packers on a fake field goal that went for a touchdown.
The Lions had a nice mix of run and pass that helped keep the Packers off the field. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was efficient, going 20-32 with two touchdowns.
The Packers finish the season with a disappointing 6-9-1 record and will miss the playoffs for the second straight season.
