The Green Bay Packers look like one of the best teams in the NFL this season, and they are off to a great start. The Packers will be hosting the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football in a game to wrap up week six of the regular season. These two NFC North rivals have delivered some classic games in recent seasons, and there is a good chance that it will happen again.
The Green Bay Packers are 4-1 so far this season, and currently sit in first place of the NFC North Division. Green Bay’s only loss of the season came against the Philadelphia Eagles during week four. Detroit might the most impressive two-win team of all time, but they have played great football this season. The Lions are 2-1-1, and should be able to keep this game close. The Green Bay Packers are -4.5 point favorites in this game.
Packers Finally Have Running Game
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay passing attack has been one of the best in the league for quite some time, but they have finally found some balance on offense. Running back Aaron Jones scored four touchdowns in the week five win over the Dallas Cowboys, and has over 450 yards of offense this season. Rodgers has been sharp this season as well, completing 63 percent of his passes for 1,300 yards. Green Bay will always be a passing team first, but their running game has taken some pressure off of Rodgers this season.
The Packers defense has been much improved this season as well, although they have been shaky in the last two games. Green Bay is giving up just 18 points per game this season, but giving up just 3 points to the Bears in week one helped to improve those numbers. Preston and Za’Darious Smith have combined for 10.5 sacks so far this season, and will look to get pressure on Stafford in this game.
Lions Just Needing Some Defense
The Detroit Lions have been scoring plenty of points so far this season, but their defense has completely let them down. The Lions are allowing 23.8 points per game, and they will be facing a great offensive team in this game. Detroit has just nine sacks so far this season, and they will need to find a way to get pressure on Rodgers in this game. The Lions are usually much better on defense at home, but they will be in a hostile environment in this game.
Detroit is averaging over 24 points per game on offense this season, and they aren’t afraid to throw the ball and take some chances. The Lions have one of the best quarterbacks in football in Matthew Stafford, and they also have a running game. Stafford has thrown for close to 300 yards per game this season, and has limited his turnovers to just two interceptions. Running back Kerryon Johnson has scored just one touchdown this season, but has been great at extending drives for the Lions. Detroit will need plenty of balance on offense if they are going to pull off this upset.
Packers Cruise on Monday Night Football
The Detroit Lions have been a great story this season, but they are still just 2-1-1. Keeping games close shows that the Lions are an improved team this season, but they still have some questions that need. Detroit can score right along with Green Bay, but their defense will likely let them down in this game. Beating the Packers in Green Bay is a daunting task, and the Detroit Lions will not be able to pull it off. Bet the Green Bay Packers -4.5 over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.
