Packers Turning to Hundley

Lions Desperate for a Win

The Detroit Lions are desperate for a win, after losing games to the Panthers, Saints and Steelers. In those three games, the Lions allowed 33 points per game. The defense on the season has allowed 24.1 points per game, while the offense has scored more than 25 per game. The Lions passing game is 12th in the league, with more than 242 yards per game. Quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown for 12 touchdowns this season, with 2 of them going to Golden Tate. The running game for the Lions has been woeful this season, with 82.1 yards per game.

Detroit hopes to see their softer part of the schedule benefit them, as they will host the Cleveland Browns, and go on the road to the Chicago Bears in their next two games.

The other win for the Lions this season came on the road at the Minnesota Vikings, where they held them to just 7 points.

Packers Beat Lions

The Green Bay Packers may not have their quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but they still have plenty of weapons to take down the Detroit Lions.
