Week 13: At Detroit Lions (Thanksgiving) LOSS Record: 7-5

Day by day inches by and Aaron Rodgers gets healthier, but not healthy enough to take on a fierce pass rush from Detroit. Returning from a collarbone injury makes him very delicate. You can’t afford to rush him back to play the most potent defensive line in the division.

The team will play admirably on the day of feasting, but more than likely will succumb to the Lions who I would expect might be looking at having a record very similar to the 7-5 the Packers would fall to after this loss.
