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.

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.

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?

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. 

"Detroitโ€™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 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.
