This game interests the hell out of me, mainly because it is the first time in my life where the Lions will not go into the Thanksgiving game as a scrawny 135-pound man fighting a bodybuilder.
It's weird for me, and I almost do not know how to properly handle this game without wondering if Peyton Manning will come out of nowhere and throw six touchdowns.
The Lions are having a phenomenal season, one that most experts seemed to think would not come until next year at the earliest.
Matthew Stafford has been able to avoid crippling injury, and their offense is widely regarded as one of the best in the NFL.
Ndamukong Suh has let it be known to the world that he may be the best defensive lineman in football, and the Lions defense is almost ready for the future.
All that said, I feel like this is the game where the wheel falls off and the engine explodes. I'm sorry, Lions fans, it's just something I've seen too many times. If the Packers do not win this game by two or more touchdowns, I'll be surprised.
I want the Lions to do well—I really do. I like watching them. But it's just not their time yet.
Pick: Packers -6
