This week six matchup will renew a long time rivalry between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers are coming off a huge win over Dallas and the Lions are coming off a bye week. Strangely enough, the Lions have won the last four meetings in a row. The Packers seemed to be improved this year, so they will be fighting to avoid losing a fifth straight meeting.
At this point in the season, the Lions were expected to be a last in the division. However, they are currently second in the NFC North. This is mainly due to the fact that they had a bye week, but still they are playing some good football.
Before their bye, they suffered a tough loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The score to this game was 34-30.
Offensively they played extremely well, putting up 447 yards against a bad Chiefs defense. Matthew Stafford threw for 291 yards in this game, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
They really got their run game clicking as Kerryon Johnson rushed for 125 yards. He did not score, but another performance like this will help Stafford open up the pass game.
Defensively, the Lions kept Patrick Mahomes from throwing a touchdown pass, but they still allowed over 438 yards. Also, after taking a late lead, their defense allowed the Chiefs to drive the field and punch in the winning touchdown with about 10 seconds left.
We know the Lions have had trouble slowing down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have Aaron Jones in the run game which spells disaster. If they can at least hold Rodgers in check, they will have a chance to keep this game close.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers got a huge win in Dallas to more to 4-1 on the season. The final score to this game was 34-24.
Stats are not going to show it, but the Packers dominated the Cowboys in this game. They were up by as much as 31-3 before allowing a couple of Dallas touchdowns to make the score look respectable.
Their offense gained just 335 yards in this game, but did not even need a big game from Rodgers to get the job done. Aaron Jones rushed for 107 yards and had four touchdowns to do basically all the scoring for the Packers. Rodgers was efficient enough as he did not turn the ball over and against the Lions he has a great track record.
Defensively, the Packers played a solid game. They forced Dak Prescott to throw three interceptions and made him look uncomfortable from the start. They ended up allowing 563 yards, but most of those yards came when they were playing soft.
The best news is the Packers completely shut down Ezekiel Elliot. A similar effort will be needed to slow down Kerryon Johnson because if he get going, this is going to be a game that comes down to the wire.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Favorite is 19-7 ATS in their last 26 meetings.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Packers -4.5
Green Bay does not lose that much at home and this is a game that I think they will win without much issue. I like the Packers to win this game by at least a touchdown and to cover the spread without a sweat.
