Matthew Stafford is the fastest QB in National Football League history to 3000 completions

On Sunday, the Packers were at Ford Field in Detroit taking on the Lions.

Not much from the Detroit Lions' final game this season will be of outcome, but the statistics still count, and Matthew Stafford found himself a pretty impressive one.

Will the Lions ever find a running game?

Golladay's third touchdown of the season put the Lions on top midway through the second quarter.

Stafford, who completed three passes of over 50 yards, went 20 of 29 through the air for 323 yards.

After an incomplete from Jeff Janis, the Packers settle for the 41-yard field goal.

When the job becomes open, keep an eye on Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, a hire that would allow the Lions to keep the offensive side of the ball mostly in place. Lined up in the slot, Golladay caught a pass over the middle and outraced the defense on the 54-yard play.

Stafford's longest completion of the season made it 27-3 late in the third.

Everyone got in on the act, including Stafford, who found himself on the receiving end of a two-point conversion thrown by Golden Tate.

NOTES: The Lions swept the season series for the first time since the 1991 season. Green Bay placed LB Nick Perry (ankle, shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday.
