The Detroit Lions will be traveling to Green Bay for a Week Two Monday Night Football showdown with the Green Bay Packers. Both teams are searching for their first win of the young season, and no better way to secure that than on a stage like Monday Night Football. Let’s break down the prime-time matchup.
After the results of Week One, Pro Football Focus (PFF) has the Lions with the third most challenging schedule remaining in the entire NFL. Any win this season for the Lions will be hard to come by, and this matchup won’t be any different.
The Lions showed plenty of heart and zero quit during their attempting a comeback against the 49ers last Sunday. The team needs to continue that mentality as they travel to Lambeau Field. In the previous 20 years, the Lions have brought a win back from Green Bay just three times. The team is looking for a quicker start this week, after falling behind in a big way last against San Francisco.
The Detroit Lions will square off against the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.
One thing the Detroit Lions did better than the Packers last week was score touchdowns. The Packers were held out of the endzone in an embarrassing 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Packers star QB Aaron Rodgers had a dreadful start to his 2021 campaign, throwing 2 INTs and not even eclipsing 200 Yds through the air.
The Lions’ defense can’t expect Rodgers to put up another horrendous performance in back-to-back outings. Expect the reigning NFL MVP to be back to his old self on Monday night.
Lions fans always feel uneasy watching the team play at Lambeau, and they have every right to feel that way.
Fans have seen how this plays out before when the team faces Rodgers in prime-time. However, a new era is beginning in Detroit, and there would be no better way for coach Campbell to get his first victory with the organization against the Packers on Monday night in Green Bay.
