After a convincing victory in Arlington, Texas over the Dallas Cowboys, the 4-1 Green Bay Packers return home for a Week 6 matchup with their NFC North rivals, the Detroit Lions.

For nearly a quarter century, the Packers won every game against the Lions at Lambeau Field, a historic 24-game run. Since then, Detroit has won the last four contests regardless of location, giving Green Bay a small taste of futility.

Monday’s contest will also serve as Packers head coach Matt LaFleur’s first game against his hometown Lions. LaFleur grew up in Mount Pleasant, Mich., a two and a half hour drive from Detroit. LaFleur also played college football at nearby Saginaw Valley State University.

Should the Packers emerge victorious, they would take a commanding lead in the division. As for the Lions, a win would validate their early season surge and deal a major blow to Green Bay.
