The Lions have lost an NFL-record 19 straight games in their division. Looking at Aaron Rodgers’ history against Detroit, we should expect the Packers to help them reach 20 in a row.

In five games against the Lions, Rodgers has completed 70 percent of his passes for 1,523 yards, 14 touchdown passes and just three interceptions. Green Bay averaged 33.4 points per game in those contests.

He’s also averaging 308 yards with 11 TDs and a 131.3 QB rating over his last four contests. That doesn’t bode well for a defense that has allowed 21 passing TDs and a 96.3 QB rating in 2010.

Meanwhile, the Lions are all banged up. It looks like third-stringer Drew Stanton will draw another start and coule be without Jahvid Best, Nate Burleson and Derrick Williams.

Stanton was decent last week, but he faces the NFL’s best pass defense (180.5 yards per game) since Week 9. The Packers also lead the NFL in points allowed per game with 15.2.

    Its been like 4 or 5 weeks straight of pure A-rodg domination, and against Detroit a team ranked near last in yards through the air, and giving out a butt load of pts to fantasy receivers quarterbacks every position. The Lions have had many close games lately and could contend well, however idont see them doing it agiast this big packers D and against the high powered offense. A-rodg owners, greenbay defense, jennings, and James jones owners should be pleased this weekend.

    [...] we called it in our fantasy preview with projections, Will Heller scored the lone touchdown in the game on his only catch, a 13-yarder. Seriously [...]
