Packers quarterback Matt Flynn sacked

DETROIT–The Packers suffered one of the worst losses in the Mike McCarthy era on Thursday, in a 40-10 defeat to the Lions at Ford Field. The outcome was punctuated by the final statistics.

With 4:17 to play in the game, the Lions had gained 563 yards to the Packers’ 56, and had run 77 plays to te Packers’ 36. That’s were the game stood following Matt Stafford’s third touchdown pass of the day.

The loss left the Packers at 5-6-1 and clinging to fading playoff hopes. At 7-5, the Lions moved into the driver’s seat in the NFC North title race.

Quarterback Matt Flynn was sacked seven times, the final time for a safety. He threw for 139 yards, the vast majority of it in the Packers’ final possession.

The Packers stayed within reach of the Lions through three quarters, thanks to four takeaways. The Lions’ yardage barrage, however, eventually became overwhelming. The Lions more than doubled the Packers’ time of possession. The Lions’ rushed for 241 yards.
