Packers vs. Lions: Preview, Prediction

Packers Lions

The Thursday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions has a chance to be an early season statement game. Both teams have started well this season and can secure the early division lead. 

Recently, the Packers have struggled against the quickly improving Lions. The Lions have won the last three meetings, including the last game of the 2022-23 regular to prevent the Packers from qualifying for the playoffs. 

The Packers feature a new identity on offense, with quarterback Jordan Love replacing Aaron Rodgers. It has led to a more balanced offensive attack, with Love doing a great job distributing the ball.

The Packers are dealing with injuries to multiple starters, which won’t help them against a talented Lions team. The Lions boast a well-balanced and physical team. Their defense also has improved this season, allowing 21 points per game and 297.3 total yards.

This will be another tight, competitive game between the NFC North’s top two teams. The Love era is off to a promising start, but the Lions will prevail on Thursday night.

Prediction: Lions 23, Packers 17
