It’s Packers vs. Lions. In today’s football news, fans can expect a very intense Week 17 game between the Packers and the Lions this Sunday. Both teams are tied with 9-6 records and will be battling it out to determine the NFC North winner. Ultimately, Aaron Rodgers is the stronger QB, especially with Matthew Stafford still not looking 100 percent after his finger injury. We are predicting a very close game, but with the Packers looking more confident with Rodgers, we are predicting Green Bay wins by 3 points.
Packers vs. Lions Score Prediction: Packers 24, Lions 21
The Packers and Lions will battle in a NFL Week 17 showdown to determine the league’s final division champ. Whoever takes the win in Detroit will take the NFC North crown. The loser will most likely miss the playoffs all together.
In the latest NFL news, Packers vs. Lions teams are tied with 9-6 records, though Green Bay owns the tiebreaker heading into Week 17. The Packers defeated the Lions handily when they met in Week 3, and their second matchup could be more of the same. When Aaron Rodgers is at his best, he’s the NFL’s top quarterback. The two-time MVP has been unstoppable in the last six games, throwing 14 touchdown passes and no interceptions.
The Lions Matthew Stafford and Co. are not playing their best football right now. Stafford dislocated the middle finger on his throwing hand and also tore ligaments in that finger in a Week 14 comeback win over Chicago. NFL gossip has been surrounded by the fact that he hasn’t looked nearly as sharp in the past two games.
In this Packers vs. Lions matchup, if Stafford were 100 percent, we would probably put our confidence in the Lions. But he’s clearly not and the Lions are also banged up at running back. Rodgers knows how to win big games like this, while Stafford doesn’t.
Our NFL score prediction for this game is Green bay defeating Detroit 24-21.
