Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions: Head-to-Head Matchups and Predictions
Game Time and Network: 1:00 EST, Fox
Last Meeting: Green Bay 34, Detroit 12
Head-to-Head Series: Green Bay 90-64-7
Key Offensive Matchup: Aaron Rodgers vs. Shawn Hill. A classic quarterback duel in every sense of the word....but seriously. Hill isn't going to be able to keep up with Rodgers, but he needs to make enough plays to keep the Lions in this game.
Key Defensive Matchup: Detroit's secondary vs. Green Bay's Linebackers. Detroit has to make some plays to slow down Rodgers and his potent passing attack while Clay Matthews and company have to slow Jahvid Best, who is dealing with turf toe.
Who Outcoaches Who: To be honest, I think Jim Schwartz will outcoach Mike McCarthy, but I don't htink he has enough talent to get the job done.
Final Score Prediction: Green Bay 35, Detroit 17
Key Playmaker: It's going to be Greg Jennings. Jennings needs to find room down the field in the Detroit secondary to make things happen for Green Bay this week and help open up the other wideouts.
Stat Machine: Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers is the Packers' offense and he's going to have a big day against the Lions' shoddy defense. If Mike Vick can do it, why not Rodgers?
Goat of the Game: Shawn Hill. Nothing against Shawn Hill, but the Lions are just going to ask him more than he's really capable of doing.
