Game notes: Lions fans may only get a half of action from Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams and Co. as the Packers, who have clinched the conference's top seed, are in position to rest their starters. They head to the playoffs thanks to a top-10 passing offense, MVP-level play from Rodgers and a top-10 passing defense (213.7 yards allowed per game) and scoring defense (20.9 points allowed per game).

The Lions are finishing out another double-digit loss season, their sixth since 2010 and league-high 14th since 2000. They have Jared Goff back Sunday after missing two straight games. In his first year as Lions quarterback, Goff has passed for 3,007 yards, 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions over 13 games.
