The division title isn't on the line in this matchup like it was Week 17 a year ago, but the Lions can still finish their season with a 9-7 record and a 5-1 mark in the NFC North, and head to the offseason with some momentum.
Tate, with 104 yards and counting, joins running mate Marvin Jones with 1,000-plus yards receiving on the year.

That relative feat, along with a 36-28 record and two postseason appearances over four seasons in Detroit, may not be enough for Caldwell to keep his job. CB Davon House had a shoulder injury and Williams was evaluated for a concussion late in the game.
Later, the Lions make a field goal and the game is tied at 3 at the end of the first quarter.
