The Packers visit Ford Field in Week 14.
The Green Bay Packers visit Ford Field with hopes of leaving with the NFC North title.
If they pull off a win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon and the Minnesota Vikings lose or tie in their matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier in the day, the Packers will have successfully regained their division title.
For that reason, it’s a big game for the Packers. And here’s all the information you need on how to watch or listen:
Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is aiming to continue his undefeated streak against the Lions having won his first three games against them, including a victory at Lambeau Field in Week 2 earlier this season.
The Lions enter this game still alive in the wild-card race, but they will almost certainly need a win to keep it that way.
The Lions remain incredibly inconsistent. They’ve picked up victories in recent weeks against the Chicago Bears and Washington Football Team but have lost four of their past six, including getting shutout by the Carolina Panthers.
To make matters worse for the Lions, they’ll try to stop the NFL’s number one scoring offense without cornerbacks Desmond Trufant and Jeff Okudah, while their offense will try to keep pace without wide receiver Kenny Golladay.
On paper, the Packers look to have the clear advantage in this matchup.
But football isn’t played on paper. We’ve seen in recent meetings with the Lions that they’ve been able to keep these games close. Detroit should’ve gone 2-0 against Green Bay last season but ended up losing both.
Division games aren’t easy. But if the Packers can get the job done this week, they could end the day as NFC North champs.
