The Packers lead the all-time series between these division opponents, 103-74-7, but the Lions have won their past two meetings, including earlier this season. They last faced off back in early-November, with the Lions winning at home 15-9. The last time they played each other in Green Bay, however, the Packers got the home win 35-17.
If you’re looking for who to root for in the matchup, BLG explains in the Week 18 rooting guide:
DETROIT LIONS at GREEN BAY PACKERS: Would you rather the Eagles potentially face one of Jared Goff/Geno Smith ... or Aaron Rodgers? Feels like an easy call. No need to see the Packers make the playoffs. A Lions win combined with a Seahawks win allows Seattle to make the No. 7 seed. Root for the Lions.
