If GB can get to 6-1, a realistic goal,  it puts WAY less pressure to have to win at KC and/or at LA. Lions are at home. Rodgers is adjusting to and beginning to flourish more and more in this offense. The defense is creating mass take-aways. 

It's a division game and the Packers get an extra day to rehab. They should win this, periodT.

With the current standings the Packers only have x teams with losing records on their schedule. 

Broncos 1-4 (Home)
Chargers 2-3 (Road)
Giants 2-3 (Road)
Redskins 0-5 (Home)

Basically we got one gimme all year long.   Broncos are better than that 1-4 (Every loss they have is against team with winning record) and the Giants are much improved with Jones vs Eli.  

Imagine being the Pats and getting Miami and Jets twice a year, every year.   If / when, we make the dance we will be battle tested.

Last time I checked, to get to 6-1 you first have to get to 5-1. The Lions D is legit. The offense tore up GB last year scoring 61 total points.

GB is going to have to show up, create turnovers, take care of the ball and be able to run. That last thing is what scares me. Det has that big D line and GB struggles with big, strong D-Linemen.

Does x mean 4?

The Loins tied the Cardinals, barely beat a bad Chargers team, beat the Eagles (OK, something the Packers couldn't do), and lost in a shootout with the Chefs...a game that holds a little less glimmer after last night's KC loss to Indy.

We've spit in the eye of Da Bears, Vajeens and Cowboys...two of those on the road.

I like our chances.

September doesn't tell us anything anymore.  I still don't know what to make of this team as a whole, record or no record.  They're finding ways to win which is always a good sign.  But we'll see if they can keep that up once the unscouted looks expire.

DET still struggling with being up and down all season.  Can easily lose to them if they're up but who knows what we'll get next week.

Detroit goes with Stafford. He's a very similar guy to Dak Prescott. He can make some beautiful throws, but he'll give you some chances every game for turnovers. The Lions will probably get their yards, it's whether the Packers defense can do what they did against the Cowboys, Vikings, and Bears  - force turnovers and capitalize on them.

One of our Viking buddies with his "great and unmatched wisdom"  disagrees. 

"Detroit’s offense is sneaky good right now and will be a good test. Their defense is terrible, but if they can control the ball on offense, I can see them running their dominance over green bay to a 5 game win streak."

We may wind up playing the Lions much like the Cowboys; emphasizing the run to help neutralize their pass rush, and taking away the run on defense, and force them to throw to expose a very mobility-impaired QB to our own rush.
I'd hope we can again score early and make their offense unbalanced.

We need to stop their WRs, and stifle Kerryon Johnson's run game. Stat Padford will give us an INT, to two, per usual. Chandon, Darnell(if he plays) and Kevin may pad their stats in this game. I hope the Smiths, the new Williams guy and Fackrell pad their stats, too.

If it wasn't for you guys here at X4, I'd have no clue about Skip Clueless.

Ratings are down....Bash on anything/everything Packers. That'll get em back up there

Cowherd does the same thing, those two are like two peas in a pod and not worth the attention they get

Reasons to relax

The Lions may not be that good. They blew a 17-point lead in Week 1 to tie Arizona and had a late 30-27 lead over Kansas City before losing in a game where they turned over in the red zone twice. In their three-point win over the Los Angeles Chargers, they took advantage of the Chargers' punter missing two field goals. And the Eagles gave up a kick return touchdown in the Lions’ three-point win in Philadelphia. On the year, Detroit has turned it over six times and had a field goal blocked.

Though Detroit has beaten Green Bay in two straight seasons at Lambeau Field and three times out of the last four, it has not been a kind venue for the Lions in the long history of the rivalry (27-59-4). And, the Packers haven’t lost at home to the Lions with Aaron Rodgers playing a full game under center since 2015. In fact, Rodgers is 7-1 in games he has started and finished against the Lions at home.

Detroit also hasn’t figured itself out on defense yet. They are No. 27 overall, but No. 20 against the run and give up 4.8 yards per carry. They rank 30th against the pass and are No. 20 in points allowed.
