Lions @ Packers

Recommended Posts



The Lions have won each of their last three games against the Packers, including a 31-23 win in Detroit in Week 5 this year. They've also won two of their last three at Lambeau -- prior to 2015, they hadn't won there since 1991, losing 23 in a row.

After a 27-9 loss to Minnesota last week, the Lions have now failed to score 20 points for five consecutive weeks. That's their longest streak since a six-game streak in 2005, a year they finished 5-11.

Last week's comeback win over the Jets was the second time this season the Packers have erased a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit and won (also Week 1 vs. Chicago) -- they had just two such games in franchise history prior to this season (1951 & 1989).

The Packers have gained at least four yards on 56.3 percent of their first-down runs, highest in the NFL this year. The Lions have averaged 4.9 yards per first-down play this season, third lowest in the league.

With only 3511 passing yards this season, Matthew Stafford is on pace to throw for fewer than 4000 yards for the first time in his career as a full-time starter (threw for 2267 in 10 games in 2009, and 535 in three games in 2010).

Aaron Rodgers is 227 passing yards away from tying his career high of 4643, set in 2011. He is also 18 pass attempts away from tying his career high of 610, set in the 2016 season.
