Why Green Bay Packers Will Win
This didn’t go all that well the first time around for the Lions.
The Packer offense was almost perfectly balanced in the 42-21 win, the defense didn’t allow much on the ground, and there weren’t any real issues. That’s how the team has played over the last several weeks – at least outside of an overtime loss to Indianapolis.
Aaron Rodgers has been unstoppable, the defense hasn’t allowed a 300-yard passer all year, and Detroit’s defense has been awful at giving up deep passes.
Why Detroit Lions Will Win
Green Bay has a strange way of falling into a lull at times. When it’s on, and Rodgers is clicking, the offense is sensational and breathtaking. But to cliché this, there’s a bit too much taking the foot off the gas.
Detroit has been able to thrive when it gets just a little bit of an opening. That happened in a win over Atlanta earlier in the season, and it happened in last week’s win over Chicago.
The offense has the ability to bomb its way back into games.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
WR Davante Adams, Green Bay
Rodgers has several great receivers to throw to, but he keeps going to Adams over and over and over again to the point of forcing the issue. Adams has caught 11 touchdown passes in the last seven games with four 100-yard days over the stretch. He was held to three catches for 36 yards against the Lions the first time around – that’s not going to happen again.
What’s Going To Happen
Detroit is a different team now with Darrell Bevell at the helm – the team appear to be much, much happier. That’s not necessarily going to matter against a Green Bay team and its top-scoring offense, but this won’t be the wipeout the first game was.
This is when Aaron Jones and the Packer running game roll against one of the league’s worst run defenses – no one gives up more rushing touchdowns.
