THE FACTS

-The Packers last five opponents have scored 31, 27, 27, 27, and 26 points. Green Bay is 1-3-1 in that stretch.

-The Lions have turned the ball over 13 times in the past four games, but are miraculously 2-2 in that frame. The wins were by one and two points.

KEY MATCHUP: To think, even with Aaron Rodgers likely missing this game, Green Bay would have sole possession of first place for a few days with a win. Green Bay's averaged 22.17 yards per point without Rodgers, down from their 16.44 rating on the year.

Even with Rodgers likely sitting out Thanksgiving for the Return of Jedi Matt Flynn, the Lions are capable of being thrown on. Detroit's 90.75 defensive passer rating, and 11.99 yards per completion allowed, means Flynn can burn 'em deep.
