Packers vs. Lions: Preview and Prediction


When: 8:30 p.m. EST Sunday
Where: Ford Field – Detroit
Series: Packers lead, 99-68-7
Line: Packers by 3

Green Bay’s season comes down to one game. Riding a five-game winning streak, the Packers face the Detroit Lions on the road in a Week 17 matchup that will decide the NFC North division winner.

The loser could miss the playoffs entirely.

Both teams can make the playoffs if the game ends in a tie or if Washington loses to the New York Giants.

The Packers beat the Lions, 34-27, in Week 3 at Lambeau Field.

Expect a similar result this time around. Aaron Rodgers has continued to prove doubters wrong and is performing at a MVP caliber level. With a productive running game in recent weeks, it makes the Packers offense even harder to prepare for.

The game will come down to the final minutes with the Packers marching into the playoffs with another victory.

Prediction: Packers 34, Lions 27
