As the Packers make their way to Detroit this Sunday to take on the 2-9 Lions, Green Bay also risks their impressive 8-4 record through 13 weeks of play.

Last week's win was a positive reinforcement to the remainder of Green Bay's season, absolutely manhandling the 49ers on home turf.

But this year in the NFL is different; teams once thought of as "non-competitive" are now shooting their way up the standings, and nothing seems to be even remotely predictable.

With that being said, the Packers just barely managed to get the home victory over those Lions in a week four matchup some month and a half ago -- winning by the slimmest of margins at 28-26.

Drew Stanton will try to lead the Lions' upset over the Green and Gold on Sunday, looking for his first victory of the season as the Lions' starting quarterback.

Meanwhile, James Starks makes is legendary second appearance of the season, and looks to take the Green Bay running game to new heights.

What does the game hold on store?  Let's find out.

Here are five conceivably bold predictions for Sunday's game.
