2-1-1

Don’t sleep on the Lions! Despite what has been a mostly one-sided rivalry (Green Bay leads 100-72-7), Detroit has beaten Green Bay four times in a row going into this Monday’s matchup for first place in the NFC North. Detroit had a week off to stew after a close loss to Kansas City at home in Week 4, so we will see how they respond Monday night. The Packers, meanwhile, are coming off a statement win in Dallas, where they took a 31-3 lead late into the third quarter before holding on for a 34-24 win. Both quarterbacks have been efficient so far in 2019. Aaron Rodgers has over 1,300 yards, six touchdowns, and only one interception. Matthew Stafford has 1,122 yards in one fewer game, nine touchdowns, and two picks. Both teams are about average when it comes to giving up yards, but Green Bay has had more success in keeping opponents off the scoreboard. The Pack has only allowed 18.6 points per game, while the Lions have given up nearly 24 per contest. Detroit has a history of coming up short in big games like this, but second-year head coach Matt Patricia has made strides this year in trying to reverse a losing culture. Expect a tight game defensively, which means that the under could be in play here.
