They got RB Adrian Peterson and WR Kenny Golliday, both of whom the Packers couldn't stop at times... and no word on NT Kenny Clark's injury makes me believe he's missing a few games if not more.

Also the Lions basically kicked the Packers butt in last year games but lost because a questionable ref call and Packers fighting until the end, as they're 3rd string QB and a banged up Lions could only do so much.

This potential could be a rough one.

Of course the Bears were able to come back late 4th quarter in part because they were able to pass the ball like crazy, due tonthe Lions top 3 CBs all being injured.

So this could be another MVP day for Mr. Rodgers potential too.

Kenny Golladay has a hamstring issue. He's probably not going to be up. It's the Marvin Jones guy that worries me.

With CB Justin Coleman on IR. Jeff Okudah & Desmond Trufant are having their own hammy issues it is looking like Rodgers will have another good day.

I went to a Lions fan forum after they lost to the Bears.
One of the comments that was there made me laugh.....”the other teams in the NFC North get to play the Lions TWICE a season! That’s not FAIR! The Lions don’t get to play the Lions even ONCE!”
They looked a lot better than the sum of their parts for 3 quarters... And then just collapsed.

I was impressed by Peterson, though, and with Hockenson showing why he was a first rounder last year. Then again, he started off much in the same fashion last year.

You never know what Stafford you're getting. Looks like he feels and sees everything on the field one play, only to lob one into triple coverage the next.

Defense wasn't all that impressive. If it wasn't for Trubisky being off target quite a few times and receivers dropping some balls, they could've gotten to 40 points, as well. Especially with all those CBS out on the Lions' side.

I think this is one we should be able to win, but I can't imagine it begin a low scoring game.

How did Chicago end up on CBS? I am thrilled.

The full/complete injury list for both the Packers and the Lions with their positions, injuries, and who is expected to take their place would be informative. Thanks Guys!

Yes it would, and $100 extra in my pocket sure would be nice.

Injury List

Of Packers not practicing at all

OG Lane Taylor, probably done for the season, his replacement will depend on the OL shuffle, and who's healthy, is Turner and Patrick healthy? If so, they probably both in. If it, the. Wagner then Runyon.

OLB Ramsey as 4th OLB, it was draft pick Jonathan Garvin and PS player Tipa Galeai this last week.

NT Kenny Clark, Lowry, Lancaster and Keke will attempt to replace him, plus Pettine will probably be playing a 5-2 with Z. Smith as a NT in an attempt to stop the run.

The rest of the injury report is St. Brown, the 3rd rounders whom always seem to be on the injury report (DL Adams and ILB Burks), and every OG not named Runyan, but I'm expecting that most of them will be available for the game.

Lions depth chart...

Their top WR is injured, their top receiving TE (whom I consider a WR... he has TE size, but he's a rookie and last year in college he seemed softer than some WRs, but he's a very good route runner and WR, but if I see anything that physical out of him, I'd be surprised.)

Their top 3 CBs are injured, but the #3 overall pick didn't play against the Bears, I'm guessing he plays this game.

A starting DT is injured, but I think they got a lot of run stuffers, so I don't know if that will help too much.
It would appear that a more pass weighted offense against the Lions could be most effective. The loss of Lane Taylor hurts, but thankfully GB's GM has been more practical hiring players over picking up the flavor of the month (WR or TE).

The GB Defense will be looking to improve and not give up so many points this week. Stafford is a fine QB, but has had few great assets over the years to help him.

Green Bay wins. 35 to 13

Mucky Tundra (13-Sep) : Typical Bengals, drive down the field for a last second FG and they miss. That's what I get for picking them
Mucky Tundra (13-Sep) : I really haven't paid much attention to anything this offseason. Did they lose a bunch of people or what?
