The Lions and Packers have a lot on the line here as the two battle it out on Sunday Night Football.
Both teams currently sit at 9-6 and are currently in Wild Card spots, but have no wiggle room to work with.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers are red hot right now and not a team you want to deal with.
After dropping 4 straight games the Packers have racked up 5 straight wins and find themselves hanging on for a playoff spot right now.
Green Bay has leaned heavily on QB Aaron Rodgers and his arm.
Rodgers comes in off a performance that saw him throw for 347 yards and 4 touchdowns as he also showed off his versatility by running for touchdown.
The Packers have stepped things up defensively as well, as they continue to put together solid pressure and not give opposing QBs much time to work with.
Here, they’ll have to do exactly that, as Matthew Stafford simply cannot have a lot of time in the backfield.
Detroit is in the same situation as they simply have no room for error heading into this week.
The Lions were knocked around by the Cowboys on Monday Night Football as they allowed 42 points in a 42-21 loss.
Detroit fell victim to allowing the big yardage plays, something the Cowboys are certainly good at doing.
One thing the Lions do have to build off of is their run game.
Detroit racked up 90 yards on 20 carries and found all three of their touchdowns on the ground. They’ll have to get the ground game going early here.
If they can find success chewing clock and moving the chains, it’s just more time to keep QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense off the field.
