This is a game that features one of the NFL’s oldest rivalries with 163 head-to-head games played. But just because it has a historic rivalry doesn’t mean it has been a fair fight. The Packers lead the series 91-65 and have won 12 of the last 13. The one win for the Lions came in 2010 after knocking Aaron Rodgers out of the game with a first-half concussion. Well, Rodgers is fully healthy and has his Packers scoring more than 31 points per game during their four-game winning streak.

Packers 35, Lions 32

Yep, this one will be a good game to watch. Fantasy points from wherever you can get 'em.

Had this one circled on the calendar back in August though I expected it to determine the lead in the NFC Central. So be it, a very motivated Lions team at home playing with great sense of urgency will get up on the Packers early today and ride it through to a very close (but victorious) finish. Lions front 7 will make the difference here with pressure on Rodgers and several early sacks that put him on his heels. Strip sack-fumble will be the difference maker as the Defense gets into the scoring act today. Megatron has another 200+ yard day but adds 2 TD's to the mix and Leshoure rumbles for 90 yards on the ground with a TD

Lions - 38
Packers - 36

yeah, and it is the only way the Lions win this one - they are not going to be able to play catchup with Rodgers & Co. - they need to stay ahead in this one and the home crowd will then be able to make a difference. This could be a signature win if they pull it off and start something bigger.

Thinking home field advantage will decide this one with a ton of FF points.

this game will probably defy expectations and be low-scoring

Wow back-to-back INTs from Stafford and Rodgers. Both horrible passes.

x2 It's the most asinine move a coach makes. Kinda like being in high-school and going to shake someone's hand but pulling it back and yelling "PSYCHE!" :F
