    Buck and Aikman have the call for FOX, so this must be the game of the day.

    7 games remaining, 5 against division rivals.

    The Packers have placed Bulaga on IR; Vic So'oto is back after playing for four weeks for the Raiders and being released.

    Another former Packer who has spent time with the Raiders this season will be on the other side of the field. Pat Lee was claimed off waivers by Detroit.

    First meeting with the Lions in 2012. The previous meeting in Detroit was last Thanksgiving and included the Suh stomping episode; the press has been trying to get a rise out of someone and failed thus far; expect them to keep trying. The last game was a shootout at Lambeau with Rodgers coaching on the sidelines

    I would have preferred the Lions to have beaten the Vikings but it was not to be. These are some desperate dudes.

    Packers are the pick because of Rodgers, period. No run game , banged up d and o line, facing a desperate team that has to win...Packers still have the edge because of 12. Nothing else really matters, if 12 is on the Pack wins this game 99%. Especially with Stafford being erratic this season.

    The last three or four years the game in Detroit has been a struggle. I think the Packers win, but even a score of 10 - 7 would not surprise me.

    It's amazing how people have ignored just how banged up we are. No Benson, no Jennings, no Quarless, no Bulaga, Jordy has been banged up, Finley is basically not on the field...yet Rodgers is still on an MVP pace.

    The Detroit Lions are a terrible football team. The defense is just plain bad, the defense can be blocked by double amputee o-lineman and still can't get penetration. Rodgers should have time to carve that crappy secondary up.
    You ask me why I lift, I wonder why you don't.

    Rodgers may carve them up, but Megatron got 244 yards on us last year--franchise record. They suck, but division games are never gimmes

    You're right, they aren't gimmes. But Megamaid isn't the same as last season.

    Having Clay out is bothersome, but hopefully Moses and Walden can step up. Also our secondary was pretty weak last season, but feels more improved this season. I expect this game to go the way of the Packers, but it seems to have shoot-out written all over it.
