Thus far, there's been a role reversal in the NFC North standings, with perennial doormat Detroit sitting at 3-1 and two-time defending division champion Green Bay at 1-2.
On Sunday, the teams meet at Lambeau Field, and the Lions will have the opportunity to prove to the world that they're a legitimate contender and need to be taken seriously as a threat to capture the division.
Unfortunately for Lions fans, that isn't going to happen.
The Packers might be 1-2, but they've lost road games at San Francisco and Cincinnati, two of the better teams in football. They still employ quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the best player in football regardless of position.
Plus, Detroit hasn't beaten Green Bay at Lambeau since George Bush was in office, and I'm not talking "Dubya." The Lions haven't gotten it done in Wisconsin since Dec. 15, 1991.
Rodgers will shred the Lions' 22nd-ranked pass defense and connect early and often with stud receivers Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and James Jones on the way to a four-touchdown performance. The Packers will restore normalcy to the NFC North with a double-digit victory over the Lions.
