The Green Bay Packers (13-4) fall to the Detroit Lions (3-13-1) in the regular season finale, 37-30, inside Ford Field.
Devante Adams broke the single season receiving yard record in Green Bay history that Jordy Nelson set in 2014.
The Green Bay starters played the first half before the second and third (and beyond) stringers got some burn and played the second half.
Aaron Rodgers completed 14-of-18 passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns.
Jordan Love completed 10-of-17 passes for 134 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
I thought Love played fine, especially considering who he was playing with.
I was perfectly fine with how head coach Matt LaFleur managed this game with the result having no impact on playoff seeding.
Sure, it would have been nice to get the win and finish the regular season 14-3, but it was a good opportunity for the backups to get some burn to get some meaningful experience and development in an actual game rather than just preseason games.
It’s never a bad thing to give the backups experience because you never know when they’ll be needed.
The Packers will have a bye next week in the NFL’s Wild Card weekend. The date and opponent for the Divisional Game is to be determined.
