Lions score late, hold off Packers 37-30

D’Andre Swift scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1:54 remaining on a 14-yard run and the host Detroit Lions defeated the Green Bay Packers 37-30 on Sunday.

Jared Goff passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns, while Amon-Ra St. Brown caught eight passes for 109 yards and a touchdown. The Lions finished the season at 3-13-1.

Aaron Rodgers passed for 138 yards and two touchdowns while playing only the first half for the Packers (13-4), who had already wrapped up the top seed in the NFC playoffs. Allen Lazard caught five passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns.

Detroit led 17-13 at halftime.

Green Bay opened the game with a 13-play, 74-yard drive. The Packers scored on 3rd-and-goal as Rodgers found Lazard from 1 yard out.

Detroit used a trick play to knot the score. Goff handed the ball off to St. Brown, who pitched it to tight end Tom Kennedy. Kalif Raymond was wide open along the right sideline on the 75-yard play.

St. Brown caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Goff to give the Lions a 14-7 lead.

Rodgers’ second scoring pass to Lazard covering 29 yards cut Detroit’s lead to one but Mason Crosby missed the extra point.

Riley Patterson kicked a 34-yard field goal with two seconds left in the half.

The Lions extended their lead to 11 points on Goff’s 36-yard pass to Brock Wright.

Crosby made a 36-yard field goal midway through the quarter, and Patrick Taylor scored his first NFL touchdown from one yard out to make it 24-22 in the fourth quarter. The two-point conversion attempt failed.

Patterson hit a 36-yard field goal with 6:39 left to give Detroit a five-point advantage.

The Packers answered with Jordan Love’s 62-yard hookup to Josiah Deguara, who caught a short toss and charged up the middle for the score. Love ran for the two-point conversion to give Green Bay a three-point edge at 30-27 with 4:49 left.

Swift’s score capped off a six-play, 75-yard drive. Patterson drilled a 27-yard field in the final minute after Love was intercepted by C.J. Moore.

Love was intercepted again, this time by Tracy Walker, on Green Bay’s final possession.
