5 Key Matchups for the Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers

1. QB Matthew Stafford vs Packers Secondary

Stafford wants to end the season strong and he will be taking on a division rival at home. I understand a lot of fans this is a “meaningless game,” but any game against a rival like Green Bay means something to the players.

Green Bay is resting a few of their offensive players so their offense should not be on the field long giving Stafford more chances.

2. QB Brett Hundley vs Lions Secondary

Hundley has had a poor season, however, he has played much better on the road this season with a QBR of over 90 in road games.

I believe that the Lions will take a longer look at Tabor this game to see what the young man has, so far he seems to be playing well in his limited snaps.

3. RB Tion Green vs Packers linebackers

Green, in my opinion, is the Lions best RB on their roster. He is not the fastest, not the quickest, cant catch the best, but he has all the basic attributes you need. Green almost always hits the hole the O-Line opens for him, he can break a tackle or two and gain extra yards.

Last week Green had one fewer carry than Reddick yet gained 27 more yards. I think with this being the final game of the year the Lions will give Green a larger workload.

4.  PR/CB Jamal Agnew vs Green Bay

Agnew has made his presence felt in the return game. Over the last few weeks, the Lions have used Agnew on offense, and with Lawson being out of this game due to injury, you are likely to see Agnew on defense. It will be really fun to watch a team have to prepare for a player on offense, defense, and special teams.

5. Lions O-Line vs Green Bay Pass Rush

Stafford is on pace to be sacked the most in a single season in his career. After spending so much into the O-Line with Wagner and Lang, Decker being a first-round pick, the Line has had 10 different starting lineups this season. Clay Matthews has been a terror to the Lions over his career.
