New, comments

The Detroit Lions travel to Green Bay to try to break a 21-year streak of losing at Lambeau Field.

The 1-2 Green Bay Packers host the 3-1 Detroit Lions today in an NFC North rivalry game. We'll be keeping a close eye on the health of the Packers, as several key players are returning from injuries this week.

A critical factor for the Packers' defense will be how they handle the Lions' key weapons, Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush. Thankfully, Clay Matthews and Morgan Burnett are ready to return from their respective injuries and will likely play major roles in defending against those two players.

On offense, Jermichael Finley and Eddie Lacy are back from their concussions, and John Kuhn has recovered from his hamstring injury. Their availability will afford the Packers' offense and Aaron Rodgers more versatility in formations and playcalling.
