Packers top Lions in a shoot-out without Rodgers, 45-41

Matt Flynn had a better game than any single performance by Aaron Rodgers this year as the 4-year, former 7th round back-up from LSU filled in for the regular season finale. Flynn passed for 480 yards and 6 TDs. If Rodgers had a performance like that, he would've been only the 5th QB to ever hit 5000 yards in a season and throw 51 TDs, which would be a new record. Rodgers didn't get the chance at that record, but Matthew Stafford was able to hit 5000 yards on the season as he threw for 520 yards, but the Packers proved too much. The Pack will have the first overall seed in NFC and the Lions will have the 6th seed in the NFC.
