Lions fool Packers, get TD pass from kicker on fake FG

Joe Philbin is serving as the Packers' interim head coach for the remainder of the 2018 season. It's first Lions shutout in Green Bay since 1970.

The Detroit Lions, long ago eliminated from any kind of postseason consideration, squared off in Green Bay against the Packers, who surely did not expect to be wrapping up their season this early.

There will be plenty of other interviews for the Packers as the team searches for the best pairing for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Backup DeShone Kizer finished 16 of 35 for 132 yards, while Jamaal Williams managed just four yards on eight carries.

Quake from Mount Etna volcano jolts Sicily, sparks panic
Around 30 individuals endured wounds, for the most part from falling brick work as they fled from their homes, authorities said. A new, 2-kilometre (1.25 mile) fissure opened up Monday on a stretch of uninhabited slope near Mount Etna's southeast crater.

It was Prater's first-ever touchdown pass and the first time he has thrown a pass since the 2012 season.

It was unclear exactly when Rodgers got hurt, though he lost his helmet during a sack on his second play of the game. Because it's very possible the hit where he sustained the head injury came on the first series, it means that he went back in for two more series after the hit before he was evaluated. Heading into a Week 17 matchup against the Detroit Lions, again for the second straight year, they have nothing to play for except pride.

The second touchdown of the game was scored during the second quarter by the Lions, bringing the score to 14-0.
