A look at how the Detroit Lions' final regular-season opponent performed in Week 16 of the season.

In Week 16, the Detroit Lions' final opponent of the 2014 regular season was victorious. Here's a look at how the team performed:

Week 17 - at Packers (11-4) - beat Buccaneers, 20-3

The Bucs sort of made things interesting for three quarters. Despite being thoroughly outplayed, they went into halftime down only 10-3. And on Green Bay's first drive of the second half, the Bucs came up with a goal-line stand to keep this a one-score game.

Unfortunately for both the Bucs and the Lions, the Packers put this game away in the fourth quarter. Green Bay went up by 10 points with a field goal early in the fourth quarter, and they put the nail in Tampa Bay's coffin with a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson with 2:45 left in the game. That was all she wrote for the Bucs, and that was all she wrote for the Lions' hopes of clinching the NFC North in Week 16.
