Green Bay Packers

With a first-round bye on the table, the Green Bay Packers will go all out for another win. They are riding on the crest of a four-game winning streak despite Aaron Rodgers struggles. The veteran quarterback has not posted his regular numbers but remains efficient. Aaron Jones and Davante Adams are picking up the slack, helping the team score over 20 points in the last four games. Though their offense is far from smooth, it is their defense that has been helping them. They are holding opponents to 19.5 points per game, more bad news for the Lions.

Detroit Lions

It will be a sigh of relief for the Detroit Lions who have had to make do with a depleted core. They have lost eight games in a row with starting quarterback Matt Stafford and backup Jeff Driskel out. David Blough has started in their place but is far from the savior the Lions need. Their defense has not been that good as well. They are allowing teams an average of 26.7 points, something they cannot afford against the Packers.
