Millionaires — DETROIT LIONS
We haven’t seen this stat is years. Green Bay has lost 4 of their last 5 games and Detroit has won 3 straight. The Bears derailed the Packers a week ago with a stymied defense holding them to 13 points with a rare home field loss to Chicago. Thanksgiving proved delicious for the Lions as Quarterback Matthew Stafford had five touchdown passes, going 27-of-38 without an interception. This is the second meeting with the Lions winning game one 18-16 in Green Bay. Their seems to be much optimism at ford Field with this massive turnaround after a few were fired from upstairs. Detroit rushed for 217 yards the last two games after averaging 66.9 in the first nine. Matthew Stafford, meanwhile, has thrown seven of his 20 TDs and one of 12 INTs in the last three weeks. He passed for 337 yards and tied a career high with five TD throws against Philadelphia. Look for Calvin Johnson to continue to shine. Johnson, who caught six passes for 81 yards at Green Bay, has 17 catches for 326 yards and two touchdowns in the last three home games against the Packers. The Lions not only have been dominating offensively but dfensively have allowed averages of 14 points, only 55 yards rushing and just over 271 total yards in their last three games. For the Packers, something is really going on as Randall Cobb, James Jones and Davante Adams are under-performing. RB Eddie Lacy is inconsistent at best and suffered a groin injury in mid-November. He’s had a demotion, too many fumbles to add to his troubles. Look for the Lions to capture this game as they are clearly the better team…at this moment.
