It seems like a rarity that we have a great game in the Thursday Night Football slot. This game is huge for both teams involved as it is for the lead in the NFC North. The Lions started the season with a bang by defeating the Chiefs. After dropping their Week 2 game, they were back to their dominant ways in Week 3. They seem like a team that will never be out of the game that they are in due to their mental and physical toughness. In this one, they will need their 'A' game.

The Green Bay Packers are a team that has potential, but the roster could use a "prove it" game. With a close win over the Saints and an 18-point victory against the Bears, there is a lot that is unknown about their place among the other top-tier teams. With a talented defense and inconsistent offense, the Lions present a unique challenge for them in primetime.

The Bottom Line: The Lions are the better overall team, but it will be a good game in Lambeau. While I think the Lions will come out on top, Jordan Love will have a good game throwing the ball underneath to Luke Musgrave consistently. Unfortunately for Green Bay, I believe that they will come up with a lot of field goals, whereas the Lions will be able to punch it in.

Prediction: Lions 28, Packers 23
