Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE
At 4-5 on the season, this is not how the Detroit Lions wanted to follow up their breakout 2011 season.
At 6-3, good for second place in the NFC North, this is not the position the Green Bay Packers wanted to be in for the second half of the season.
With all that said, these team's are pretty evenly matched. Both featured big offensive attacks, and both are flawed defensively (for Green Bay, it's the pass; for Detroit, it's the run).
With pretty even offenses, this game will come down to defense. Technically, that should give Detroit the advantage since its strength against the pass gives them an edge.
As long as that secondary gets healthy for Week 11, I think the Lions pull up the upset in this shootout.
Prediction: Detroit 35, Green Bay 31
