Packers vs. Lions Week 18: Game time, TV channel & broadcast map, odds, & more

Who will win this ultimately meaningless game? And who will have it available on local TV? Check out our Game Primer to get ready.

Meaningless football in the final week of the regular season means that your team has either done remarkably well over the first 17 weeks of the year or pretty poorly. In Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, both areas are represented.

The Packers own the top seed in the NFC playoffs. The Lions are headed for a top-two draft pick, which could be as high as number 1 in April. As a result, both teams expect to get a long look at young players in this contest, though the Packers still intend to play most of their starters for at least a portion of the game.

As a result of the nature of today’s game, it has ended up in the early time slot, and as such is subject to local TV rules. Therefore, a broadcast map is necessary for the Packers for the first time in a few weeks, following a pair of nationally-televised contests. Check out the map and all of the details you’ll need to get ready for today’s game below in our Game Primer, and come on back for the game this afternoon!
