The regular NFL season is in the books. Yesterday…
• The Detroit Lions stunned the Green Bay Packers 37-30. With the top seed in the NFC playoffs guaranteed, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers played only the first half, and many other starters eventually joined him on the bench. Rodgers tossed two touchdown passes, as did Detroit quarterback Jared Goff. The Lions completed two nifty trick plays for touchdowns. The Lions will have the second pick in the 2022 NFL draft, behind the Jacksonville Jaguars.
• Last night, the Las Vegas Raiders edged Los Angeles Chargers 35-32 in overtime.

In another move that was widely anticipated, the Chicago Bears have fired head coach Matt Nagy.
