How Lions' future opponents fared in Week 12

A look at how the Detroit Lions' future opponents performed in Week 12 of the season.

In Week 12, the Detroit Lions' future opponents combined to go 1-1-2. Here's a look at how each team performed:

Week 13 - vs. Packers (5-5-1) - tied Vikings, 26-26 (OT)

Matt Flynn took over for Scott Tolzien in this one and led Green Bay back from a 23-7 deficit to force overtime. The end result was merely a tie, but Flynn played pretty well by going 21 for 36 for 218 yards and a touchdown.

Week 14 - at Eagles (6-5) - Bye week

Philly was off this week.

Week 15 - vs. Ravens (5-6) - beat Jets, 19-3

Baltimore still can't run the ball, and Joe Flacco continues to not be anything special. However, it didn't matter thanks to the Baltimore defense. The Jets finished with only 220 total yards, and they turned it over 3 times. The Ravens are rolling right now, at least on one side of the ball.

Week 16 - vs. Giants (4-7) - lost to Cowboys, 24-21

New York rallied from down 21-6 by tying this with 4:53 left in the game. The Giants weren't able to turn that comeback into a victory, though. Dallas drove down and hit a last-second field goal to win the game and take back first place in the NFC East.

Week 17 - at Vikings (2-8-1) - tied Packers, 26-26 (OT)

Minnesota had a 23-7 lead early in the fourth quarter in this game. After allowing Eddie Lacy and Jarrett Boykin to find the end zone and Mason Crosby to hit a 27-yard field goal, however, the Vikings ended up in overtime. There, they managed to keep Green Bay out of the end zone, but they were unable to do anything other than kick a game-tying field goal. This all led to a tie. How boring.
