And now the games get big. Everything post-bye is huge for a three-loss Packers team. They start the business end of the regular season with a road game against the Lions.
Even though the Green Bay Packers had a bye week to get healthy, they're not looking a whole lot more fit coming into their game against the Detroit Lions. Greg Jennings, Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson are all out. Sam Shields is still questionable. A number of players listed as probable had limited participation in practice this week, and in some cases did not practice.
The big question mark for the Lions is Chris Houston. The cornerback is a game-time decision and his absence will be felt greatly for the Lions if he can't go. They're also very light at safety, with Amari Spivey out, Louis Delmas doubtful, and Erik Coleman probable after missing practice on Wednesday, then going through limited participation later on the week.
This is a big game for Dezman Moses, who will be required to get pressure on Matt Stafford for the Packers' defense to get stops. With Matthews out and Nick Perry on injured reserve, he's being forced into a prominent role and will have to sink or swim.
Game date/time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, 12 p.m. CT
Venue: Ford Field, Detroit, MI
