    Who will be joining me at the game?

    I feel very confident that this gets flexed to the night spot. I think the only other game that could would be Pitt/Cinci

    Well two weeks ago I was hoping the Bears might beat the Lions but that isn't going to happen, Pack simply need to go 2-0 to end the season. Then again who else didn't have this last game marked on their calenders before the season started?

    This will be one for the ages and all the marbles IF GB takes care of TB first...not until then.

    SO I will be looking at that Thread......see you after TB.

    The Bears are so bad. I think Aaron killed their season. That team has been in offseason mode ever since

    With the Packers losing to the Bills it doesn´t matter anymore what the Lions do on Sunday (except if we lose to the Buccaneers) regarding the NFC North division champions.

    After watching how the Bills defense was able to contain the Packers I´m really worried about the Detroit game. The Lions are more than capable of playing exactly the same way as the Bills did on Sunday but in addition their run defense is better than Buffalo´s. McCarthy has to come up with a game plan enabling Adams and one of the TEs to get involved as the Lions are more than capable of containing Nelson and Cobb.

    The Lions offense doesn´t scare me at all, but I expect a low-scoring, close to the end game in week 17.

    This will literally be one of the biggest games in Lion's franchise history. This is a chance for them to win in Green Bay, for the first time in 20 years, for their first division title in years.

    The Lions are capable of rushing four and dropping seven to slow us down, like they already did this year. Our offensive line, however, is playing much better now than it was then. It was fantastic versus Buffalo. If Rodgers has as much time vs the Lions as against Buffalo, we'll be fine. I do not see Rodgers being as off again and us dropping 7 passes, including a TD bomb.

    Plus, being at home is huge for us. Game will be close, but we will pull it out.

    Packers win 26-19.

    Rodgers is actually way more accurate when getting rid of the ball quickly (70.3% completion percentage when it takes him less than 2.5 seconds to throw) than having a lot of time in the pocket (55.3% over 2.5 seconds).

    EDIT: After thinking about it for a moment this is quite a moronic stat to come up with as all QBs are more accurate on shorter passer than deep ones. Sorry for wasting your time.

    It would make my decade to see the Lions win in Green Bay, but I don't think it will happen. Should be a close game, but if the Eagles win out (@ Redskins, @ Giants), the Cowboys lose to the Colts and beat the Redskins and Detroit wins week 17, then Green Bay will miss the playoffs entirely. That's too much motivation for Rodgers and friends to lose at home, especially since they already don't seem to lose in Lambeau.

    Packers need to take care of the Buccaneers first, they lose this week and Lions win Packers can only get a wildcard and week 17 game will be a huge let down.

    First things first... take care of business this week, cannot pencil in a W any week in the NFL. Cincy almost lost there a few weeks back.

    It's not moronic. I'd also point out that if the QB is still holding the ball in the pocket at 2.5 seconds, those also tend to be the plays where nobody is breaking open.

    Maybe the pass blocking is too good. :eek: Rodgers has been very effective in recent years when breaking the pocket and extending the play. ;)

    If this thread wasn't started already, it would have been soon. Just like the NE thread had a week in b4 the game.
    I have no problem as a fan looking a week ahead. The team on the other hand . . .

    Lions clinched a playoff spot as a result of Philly crapping the bed against Washington.

    Buffalo was supposed to collapse also, if I recall correctly. Teams that play good defense can keep games close, hang around, and win games even if the offense is missing on a cylinder or two.

    GB needs to score a lot early in this game to win.

    Did you watch the Lions today? They looked bad for 3 quarters. If they show up next week and play like that they will lose by 20+.
