For the first time since a Week 2 contest vs. Chicago, the Packers will play a game against an NFC North foe when they travel to Detroit this Sunday to take on the Lions at Ford Field, the second straight year the clubs have met in Detroit in November. Green Bay is (6-3) while Detroit comes in at (4-5).
This is the latest in a season that the Packers’ second divisional game has ever arrived (since 1967). Coming off of their Week 10 bye, the Packers will be looking to extend their winning streak to five games. Green Bay is the only team in the league to come out of its bye on a winning streak of four games or more each of the last two seasons (seven-game streak going into bye in 2011).
The Packers are on quite a roll in the division. Green Bay has won eight straight NFC North games dating back to 2010, which matches the franchise record.
