Lions and Packers face off against each other on Monday. A pair of 0-1 teams take the field for “Monday Night Football” as the Packers host the Lions. Green Bay has won four straight in the series, including a 42-21 home win last September and a 31-24 road meeting in mid-December. Aaron Rodgers has had two or more touchdown passes against his division rival in five of the last six meetings.
The Lions made things very interesting last week in their 41-33 loss to the 49ers. The team scored two touchdowns in the last two minutes and had the ball with a chance to tie after recovering a pair of onside kicks. They racked up 430 yards of offense with Jared Goff throwing three touchdown passes and two two-point conversions. Still, for as close as the final score was, the 49ers were able to do whatever they wanted to on offense as they outgained the Lions. Enjoy Lions vs Packers here at almost no cost.
Meanwhile, the Packers were downright embarrassing in their 38-3 loss to the Saints in Jacksonville, Florida. The game was moved out of New Orleans after Hurricane Ida went through the city. Rodgers was just 15-for-28 for 133 yards and two interceptions. He got nothing from his run game, and the whole team looked lackluster on both sides of the ball. New Orleans outgained them by almost 100 yards, and Jameis Winston threw five touchdown passes as well.
