By Nate LoCascio Games within the division hold extra value so when the (2-1-1) Green Bay Packers travel to the (1-3) Detroit Tigers Sunday, both teams will bring their ‘A-Game.’ The Packers are 8-4 at Detroit under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, including wins in two of the last three games. Green Bay has an 18-6 mark (.750) against the Lions under McCarthy. Of the 18 wins over Detroit, nine have been decided by 10 points or more, including four by more than 20 points.
Four of the last six games between the two have a point differential of seven points or less, with Green Bay winning three of those contests. This is the Packers’ earliest visit to Ford Field since playing at Detroit in
Week 3 of 2014.
