Ahead of the Green Bay Packers’ NFC North contest with the Detroit Lions, here are three bold predictions.
It’s bold predictions time again. The Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions in what promises to be an exciting NFC North showdown between two teams aiming to return to the postseason.
The Packers haven’t won a game against the Lions since January 1, 2017. It’s about time that changed. In fairness, the Lions haven’t seen a lot of Aaron Rodgers in the four games since. He missed both games in the 2017 season, then threw all of five passes before getting injured in the season finale last year.
Both teams have impressed so far this year. The Packers and Lions are a combined 6-2-1 after five weeks, and enter Week 6 in the top two positions of the NFC North.
I hit on one of my three bold predictions for the Cowboys game last week, predicting that Ezekiel Elliott would be held to less than 100 yards. I also noted that building an early lead would help make that happen. The other two predictions? Well, they weren’t so good.
But that’s why they’re called bold predictions. So, with the Packers and Lions set to meet in an important game for the divisional standings, here are my three bold predictions for Monday Night Football at Lambeau Field.
