Lions vs Packers Highlights

It’s been far too long since the Detroit Lions were a competitive team. Even though the tandem of Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson was a bright spot, those times now feel like a distant memory, and a trip to the playoffs seems like a pipe dream. But all that’s changed: Dan Campbell, the team’s head coach, has worked to alter those NFL stats, and a newfound emphasis on fire, fight, and kneecap-biting has given Campbell hope that his team will no longer be the NFC North’s scapegoats.

In this case, Aaron Rodgers. He has been the talk of Titletown for over 15 years, and, as he approaches his 40th birthday, that status hasn’t changed much. The combination of Rodgers’ fourth MVP award and his massive new contract should make him happy and ready to lead the Packers on another run at the Super Bowl and get those NFL scores working!

However, critics claim that the NFL’s initials stand for “Not For Long.” The loss of Rodgers’ favorite receiver, Davante Adams, to the Raiders in a trade has sent the Packers’ receiving corps tumbling and they never looked weaker. This is totally enough to make those NFL odds go berserk and make the NFL picks and parlays go flying! Depending on how the Pack’s formidable defense performs, this could be a season of traditional NFC North football.

These two teams have played 185 times, making their matchup one of the most frequent in the NFL annals (Green Bay leads 105-73-7). They’ve also won 5 of their last 8, despite losing the season finale last year. If both teams are at full strength, and you want to bet on NFL games, we have the Packers as heavy favorites in this season-ending Lions vs Packers showdown. In short, back the Pack as the clear favorite to crush the Lions. It’s the Week 18 NFL schedule you can’t let fly by!
