SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah State and current Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love threw his second career touchdown pass during Week 18 against the Detroit Lions.

The Lions hosted the Packers for a regular season finale on Sunday, January 9.

With 4:49 left in the fourth quarter, Love hit Josiah Deguara with a screen pass. The tight end took the ball 62 yards to the end zone.

The score gave Green Bay a 30-27 lead.

Love’s toss capped a four-play, 75-yard drive that lasted 1:50.

Green Bay ended up losing to Detroit, 37-30.

Love finished the game 10/17 passing for 134 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. He also ran the ball once for -1 yards and recovered a fumble.

With the loss, the Packers finished the regular season with a 13-4 record.

Green Bay had already clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC and a first-round bye in the postseason prior to Week 18.
