How you can tune into the Packers’ home opener in Week 2.

It might be early in the season, but the Green Bay Packers face yet another tough divisional matchup, and these games count the most.

If the Packers can win against the Detroit Lions in Week 2, they will already be a perfect 2-0 in the division, a great start for Matt LaFleur and his team as they aim to retain the NFC North title.

With the Packers hosting the Lions in the Lambeau Field opener, here’s the TV, radio, and live stream information:

Date: Sunday, Sept. 20
Kickoff time: 12:00 p.m. CT
Location: Green Bay, WI
Stadium: Lambeau Field
TV channel: FOX
Radio: WTMJ Milwaukee/WIXX Green Bay
Live stream: Live Stream, fuboTV
Predictions: Lombardi Ave staff picks

As is the case across many sports around the world, there will be no fans at Lambeau Field for this game. It takes away some of the Packers’ great home-field advantage. However, as we saw last week against the Minnesota Vikings, the quiet stadium does make it easier for Aaron Rodgers to draw the defense offside.

Both teams are missing key players in this contest. The Packers will be without defensive lineman Kenny Clark, who left last week’s game with a groin injury. The run defense is now an even bigger concern without Clark out there.

Lions head coach Matt Patricia has to be nervous after watching Aaron Rodgers’ performance last week, and seeing that two of the Lions’ starting cornerbacks are out of this game. Desmond Trufant and Justin Coleman are both out, while rookie Jeff Okudah is returning from a hamstring injury. Darryl Roberts could also miss the game; he’s questionable with a calf injury.

On offense, the Lions won’t have wide receiver Kenny Golladay available for this game.
