The 8-4 Packers look to score another win in the NFC North when they take on Detroit (4-8) tonight at Lambeau Field.
This would be 22 straight victories for the Pack when facing the Lions at home, if they can repeat their 24-20 victory over Detroit on November 18. Detroit's last win in Wisconsin was back in 1991, when Barry Sanders was still controlling the backfield.
Rogers and team will definitely have their work cut out for them however; with multiple players not taking the field in this playoff-critical game. Right Tackle Brian Bulaga will continue riding the bench this game, and Guard T.J. Lang went down in the second quarter of the Vikings game last Sunday. Lang practiced with the team Friday and is listed as questionable, but Coach McCarthy is preparing rookie Don Barclay to start in tonight's game.
Clay Matthews and Jordy Nelson are sitting out tonight, both with hamstring injuries. This is Matthews' fifth consecutive game. Both running back James Starks and defensive end C.J. Wilson are out with knee problems. Defensive back Charles Woodson is doubtful to play with collarbone issues. Mike Neal is also out due to shoulder concerns.
Detroit is not without their own key injuries. Receivers Ryan Broyles and Titus Young were placed on Injured Reserve this week as well.
Regardless of injuries, the game must go on. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:20pm and will be broadcast on ABC.
