GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Detroit Lions may have nothing to play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, however they did run a few of the surprising plays of this season.

From the 2nd quarter against Green Bay, the Lions ran an immediate snap fake field goal that resulted in an 8-yard touch down pass from kicker Matt Prater to tight end Levine Toilolo. Prater’s extra point made it 14-0.

It had been Prater’s touchdown pass and also the first time he’s thrown a pass because the 2012 season. This you was faulty.

He’s the next kicker in Lions history to throw a touchdown pass and first in the modern era. One other was Bill Dudley at 1947, but he also played back to Detroit.

Prater may be the next kicker to throw a touchdown pass this year, joining Chris Boswell. He’s also the third non-quarterback to finish a pass against Green Bay this season, joining Rams punter Johnny Hekker along with New England wide receiver (and former Kent State quarterback) Julian Edelman.
