Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions Prediction

Some people forget that the Detroit Lions beat the Green Bay Packers earlier this year, 16-9.

The Lions held the Packers to nine points and earned three interceptions against Aaron Rodgers.

In that game, Rodgers also led the Packers in rushing, with four carries for 40 yards. Aaron Jones rushed 11 times for 34 yards, and A.J. Dillon had nine carries for 25 yards.

That win for the Lions gave Detroit all of the confidence. After beating the Packers, the Lions added wins over the Bears, Giants, Jaguars, and Vikings but lost to the Bills on a heroic performance by Josh Allen in the middle of those wins. 메이저사이트

Anyway, the Lions have easily looked like the better and more consistent team over the second half of the season.

The Packers have won four straight games, but those wins were against the Bears, Rams, an overrated Dolphins team, and the likely, overrated Vikings team.

Jared Goff has simply outplayed Aaron Rodgers, earning 29 touchdowns and just seven interceptions with 4214 yards passing. Rodgers has 25 touchdowns with 11 interceptions and just 3490 yards.

Then there’s Jamaal Williams, who could earn the franchise record for most rushing touchdowns in a season. Barry Sanders had 16. Williams has 15 rushing touchdowns this season and will surpass 1,000 yards tonight.

He was a former Packers running back but was not brought back a couple of years ago.

Anyway, Detroit’s defense has been a work in progress all year. But the defense showed up against Green Bay at home and started this entire rally for the Lions. Green Bay has a much better secondary in this game, but the rest of its defense is pretty average.

And we’ve seen more consistency out of Detroit’s offense, which scored 27.1 points per game, compared to Green Bay’s offense, which added only 22.1 yards per game.

It’s tough to win in Green Bay, but I still think the Lions will keep this game close and potentially win.
