Packers Doom Lions to Historic 0-16 with 31-21 Defeat at Lambeau


The Packers scored first, the Packers scored last, and the Packers scored the most as the Detroit Lions made ignominous history with a 0-16 season, the only such record in the NFL.

Aaron Rodgers threw 21 times for 3 touchdowns and 308 yards. Donald Driver and Greg Jennings both had games of more than 100 yards, and Ryan Grant even recorded 106 yards in 19 carries. DeShawn Wynn was a bit more spectacular, recording another 106 yards and a touchdown in only 7 carries.

Mason Crosby contributed a fourth quarter field goal, as well.

Green Bay improved their record to a lackluster 6-10, while carefully avoiding losing to the team with the worst record of all time.

The final nails in the Detroit coffin were a 71 yard touchdown pass to Donald Driver in the fourth quarter and a interception on fourth and 27 by Nick Collins and returned for 61 yards.

Thus, two lame duck teams wrap up two terrible seasons by making history.
