Final. 34. 49. 13. 50

Not even Jon Kitna could save the day for the Lions. Did anyone really expect him too? Kitna threw 2 interceptions while Farve threw 2 touchdowns. The Packers brought in their back up Craig Nall and he added another touchdown through the air. The Lions were just bad.

Final. 31. 49. 21. 50

This one hurts the most. The 16th loss of the 0-16 season. This was also the first time the Lions met Aaron Rodgers in Wisconsin. The young quarterback went to town on the Lions for 308 yards and three touchdown. The Lions walked off the field in shame and bag heads thanked the football gods above that the season was finally over.


49. 0. 50. Final. 26

A whole lot of nothing for the Lions in this game. Other than three turnovers, the Lions also did not convert on third down once in this game. Rodgers on the other hand threw for 358 yards and two touchdowns. Drew Stanton and Daunte Culpepper both teamed up for three interceptions. A young Matthew Stafford watch from the bench as the Lions laid a goose egg.


50. Final. 28. 49. 26

So close, yet so far away. This is the closest the Lions have ever come to beating the Packers in Green Bay since 1992. Aaron Rodgers threw two interceptions, The Lions converted on ten third downs, out gained the Packer in total yards and Calvin Johnson hit pay dirt twice. The Lions never held a lead in this game. That says a lot about this streak.


45. 49. 41. 50. Final

Matthew Stafford went off in his Wisconsin debut. He threw for 520 yards and five touchdowns. If you knew nothing about this streak and I told you about Stafford’s performance and that the Packers sat their starters on this day, you would have thought the Lions dominated right? Wrong. Matt Flynn went off as well by throwing for 480 yards and six touchdowns. Effectively making sure he would never have to play again, but continues to get paid like he does.
