Lions blank the Packers at Lambeau

{ }Levine Toilolo celebrates after catching a touchdown pass from kicker Matt Prater.

Matthew Stafford threw for 266 yards and two scores to T.J. Jones, kicker Matt Prater tossed a touchdown pass after faking a field-goal try and the Detroit Lions ended a beleaguered season on a high note with a 31-0 win over the Green Bay Packers.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left the game after suffering a concussion in the first quarter. It's the third diagnosed concussion of his career.

To make matters worse for the Packers (6-9-1), Rodgers walked back to the locker room around the same time his teammates were getting over the shock of Detroit's trick play.

It was unclear exactly when Rodgers got hurt, though he lost his helmet during a sack on his second play of the game. Rodgers, who played two more series before departing, was 3 of 5 for 26 yards.

Zach Zenner had a 13-yard touchdown run for the Lions (6-10), who have won four straight against their NFC North rival for the first time since 1982-83. They got a little positive push at the end of Matt Patricia's first season as coach.

Zenner finished with 93 yards on 21 carries. Stafford was 20 of 32, while rookie Brandon Powell had six catches for 103 yards.

The Packers were also without receiver Davante Adams, who missed practice this week with a knee injury. Adams finished the season with 111 catches, one shy of tying the single-season franchise record set by Sterling Sharpe in 1993. Left tackle David Bakhtiari, who was dealing with a hip injury during the week, watched most of the second half from the sideline.

Backup DeShone Kizer finished 16 of 35 for 132 yards, while Jamaal Williams managed just four yards on eight carries. Green Bay didn't top 100 yards in total offense until the third quarter.
