3 units on Detroit PICK () (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Last season everything went right for the Detroit Lions, but this season everything is going wrong. They had three victories snatched away in the closing minutes in their last three games, and they sit at 4-8 with their playoffs hopes gone. Despite the eight losses, the Lions have been in every game this season. Their biggest loss came by 10 points, and seven of the losses were one-possession games. They play hard every game, and with a rivalry game against the Packers, I don't think that changes here. The Packers’ offense is not close to what it was a year ago as their offensive line can't stop the defenses. That has limited Aaron Rodgers and he has taken a beating this season, getting sacked 39 times already. Detroit can get after the QB, and their offense ranks No. 2 in the league - just 10 yards per game behind New England. The Lions have made a game of things every time they have taken the field this season and I don't expect things to be any different here. Get behind Detroit.
