Playoff-bound Lions end regular season with wild loss to Packers

Although the Detroit Lions won four games this season in which they trailed during the fourth quarter, they couldn’t do it a fifth time Sunday as the Green Bay Packers came away with a wild 45-41 win.  The Lions were torched by Green Bay’s backup quarterback, Matt Flynn, who made his first career start and threw for a club-record six touchdowns. 

Even though the Lions haven’t won in Green Bay in 20 years, they finished the 2011 regular season with 10 wins and 6 losses — their best record since 1995.

Now that the regular season is finished, the Lions are in the playoffs for the first time since 1999. They will play at 8 p.m. Saturday in New Orleans vs. the Saints (13-3) in an NFC “Wild Card” game. New Orleans  dealt Detroit one of its six losses, 31-17, last month.

Incidentally, had the Lions beaten Green Bay, they would have had a better playoff  seed and would have played at the NFC East Division champion New York Giants, facing a team with a worse record (9-7).
