It has been 23 years since the Detroit Lions beat the Green Bay Packers in Wisconsin, and when they did, Brett Favre wasn’t even a consideration, and the boys from One Direction hadn’t been born yet.
The Green-and-Gold need a win to take the NFC North Division and earn a bye going into the post-season.
One of the Packers’ four losses this season was against the Lions in Detroit during Week 3. That game was a painful one for Green Bay fans because by the final whistle, the team only had seven points on the board.
The Lions visit Lambeau Field again Sunday to try and break their losing streak, but all but one of the experts at SB Nation have chosen the Packers for the win. More than a dozen football experts at ESPN are also predicting a Packers victory, according to a story in the Detroit News.
