NOTES: The Packers have found their stride, which involves QB Aaron Rodgers slinging TDs to receivers all over the field and RB Aaron Jones breaking tackles on the way to paydirt. Their rush defense has been a liability, but they’ve been able to combat that liablity by producing so many game-changing plays while on offense. I expect their offense to click on all cylinders against this sub-par Lions defense in Week 14. While I don’t expect the Packers to be in any jeopardy of falling to Detroit, their defense will have to make plays if they want to cover the spread.

It’s been an up-and-down season for the Detroit Lions, but they find themselves hanging on in the wild card hunt by a thread. After conquering the rival Bears last week, the Lions can run the table and earn a wild card bid. That is a very tough task, and they will start it off with a challenge against the Packers. The Lions will certainly find success in their ground attack in Week 14, whether it’s veteran RB Adrian Peterson or rookie RB De’Andre Swift carrying the ball. Therefore it will be up to QB Matt Stafford and the Lions’ inexperienced defense to make a few plays for their playoff hopes to stay alive.
