The Detroit Lions travel to Green Bay Wisconsin to face the Green Bay Packers in week 5 of the NFL season. The Packers (1-2) are coming off of a Bye week and need a win to keep the Detroit Lions within reach in the NFC north. The Lions not only have the opportunity to snap a 22 year losing streak, they also have the opportunity to take a commanding lead in the division.
If there was ever a year the Lions were going to steal a win at Lambeau Field, it’s the year. The Lions are traveling to Green Bay earlier in the season so weather won’t be a factor. Additionally, the Packers are having trouble getting in sync this season. So much so in fact that Packer QB Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy had a heated discussion on the sidelines during the Packers last game. It seems the climate is right for a Lions win at Lambeau Field.
