Rodgers, Packers lose 20-16 to Lions, miss playoffs

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers will have the entire postseason to ponder his future.

The four-time MVP and the Green Bay Packers will miss the playoffs.

Rodgers was intercepted by Kerby Joseph on what could have been the final pass of the future Hall of Famer’s career, and Green Bay lost 20-16 to the Detroit Lions on Sunday night in a game the Packers they needed to win to make the playoffs.

Although he is under contract for next season, Rodgers, 39, has said he does not know if he will continue to play.

“It’s a little raw right now. It’s just a little bit after the game, so I want to take the excitement out of it and have the conversation and see where the organization is and see how I feel after some time has passed.” Rodgers said.

After winning four straight games and getting plenty of help from other teams, the Packers were in control of their postseason destiny heading into the final game of the NFL regular season. But they came up short against the Lions, who had been eliminated from the playoffs earlier Sunday when the Seattle Seahawks beat the Los Angeles Rams 19-16 in overtime.
