OnePride Twitter reacts to Lions 31-0 win over the Packers

Thanks to a fake field goal and a touchdown pass by kicker Matt Prater, the Detroit Lions thrashed the Green Bay Packers 31-0 in their National Football League battle at Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon. For one, the Packers hold two first round picks and two fourth round picks in the upcoming draft and will be able to re-stock some of their talent. He took a huge hit on Green Bay's first drive and limped off the field at the end of the drive.

Backup DeShone Kizer finished 16 of 35 for 132 yards, while Jamaal Williams managed just four yards on eight carries. That margin stood at the initial break.

The Detroit Lions might not have anything to play for Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, but they did run one of the more surprising plays of the season.

Rodgers suffered two concussions in 2010, the same year the Packers won the Super Bowl.

The second half featured more swapping possessions until the Lions went up 24-0 on Prater's 43-yard field goal with 3:08 left in the third quarter, a count that stood through the final break.

It was unclear exactly when Rodgers got hurt, though he lost his helmet during a sack on his second play of the game.

For the Packers, this year marks the first time the team will miss the playoffs in back-to-back seasons since 2006.
