Good news NFL fans, Thursday Night Football is back!
This week we have a great division matchup as the Detroit Lions take on the Green Bay Packers. On the fence and worried you will choose the wrong team? Have no fear! Below I will breakdown both teams and help you pick the right team in your pick em leagues.
The Lions have tightened up their play since the firing of their offensive coordinator a month ago. Over the past four games, Matthew Stafford has thrown 7 touchdowns with one interception. Calvin Johnson has also played a lot better as well. On the defensive side of the ball, the team has improved their play against the run in the past month, allowing only 56 yards per game.
The Packers on the other hand, have slipped over the past month, losing 4 of their last 5 games. Aaron Rodgers has struggled with accuracy and his receivers have done a poop job getting open down the field. In regards to the running game, Eddie Lacy hasn't been the top-tier back he was in the past three years.
This is a tough one to call, as the Packers have more talent but aren't playing up to their potential at the moment. My gut is telling me that Green Bay has to get things in order, and this is the perfect time and team to explode against.
Who do you guys have coming out on top in this matchup?
