The Detroit Lions will play against the Green Bay Packers Sunday night. Al Michaels and Chris Colinsworth will call the game which has a 8:20 p.m. EST kickoff and can be seen on NBC.
Green Bay will look to extend its lead in the NFC North as they seek their ninth win of the season. The Chicago Bears (8-5) lost earlier in the day. Detroit will be looking to halt a four game losing streak which has included a handful of gut-wrenching defeats in the closing minutes.
What is the point spread in the Lions and Packers game? The Packers are 6.5 point favorites against the Lions. The over/under for this game is set at 48.5.
The Lions continue to have the NFL’s top passing attach in terms of total yards. Part of that has been aided by their dependence on throwing the ball to cover up a sluggish run game. The Lions passing stats have also been aided by their penchant for finding themselves trailing. Detroit has allowed 34 or more points in three of their last four games, the lone game they held an opponent under was Green Bay on Nov. 18.
How injury riddled are the Packers at running back? They re-signed Ryan Grant who had been sitting at home much of the season. He will back up Alex Green but if the Packers are to score it will be because of the play of Aaron Rodgers. The Packers are 6-1 in their last seven games. The Packers are banged up on defense and will be without Clay Matthews, C.J. Wilson and Charles Wilson in this one.
