Packers vs. Lions: What Time, TV Channel & Preview

When the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers get together, it is always a game to remember in one form or another with either a shootout of points or a hail mary to win the game like Green Bay did last season against Detroit. The two teams will face off again in Week 3 with both teams sitting at 1-1 for the season and wanting to get into position for a possible playoff berth later in the year. Which team will be the one that gets the job done though at Lambeau Field? Here is a look at the matchup.

The Lions lost 16-15 at home to the Tennessee Titans and are fighting severe injury issues. Matthew Stafford has passed for 600 yards and four touchdowns. Marvin Jones has become the key receiver for Stafford with Calvin Johnson now retired. Jones has 12 catches for 203 yards as the only receiver with more than 100 yards receiving. Ameer Abdullah has 101 yards rushing but got hurt in Week 2 and is very doubtful for this game. Theo Riddick will likely be the main running back this week and is a safety valve for Stafford. It will be a challenge for the Lions defense against Aaron Rodgers and needs to step up.

The Packers lost 17-14 to the Minnesota Vikings and have a bye week to enjoy after this game. Rodgers has 412 yards through the air with three touchdowns and has found Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb 11 times each through the first two weeks. Eddie Lacy has 111 rushing yards and has been looked at as a better running back this season from last year. After having some problems with both Blake Bortles and Sam Bradford already this season, Stafford will pose a huge issue for the Green Bay defense. There is a large chance that 90 points are scored in this game between the two teams.
