Default Will the Detroit Lions beat the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving???

This is going to be one heck of a game!!!

Rumor has it that if there is a team to be the Green Bay Packers and end their winning streak it's the Lions.

What are your thoughts?

The Lions gotta win the two games before Thanksgiving for the game vs. the Pack to mean anything.

Bears...fresh off a bi-week. Probable.

Panthers...home game. We'll see.

Being a Packer fan from Wisconsin, the Packs soft defense worries me, and yes I can see the Lions winning the Thanksgiving game.

Losing Nick Collins in the secondary has really hurt the Packers---big loss. They have come up with big interceptions recently, but routinely have given up 400 yards and 30-35 points a game. They need to put more pressure on the qb, and may turn Matthews loose and blitz more often.

When the Pack faces a good team that takes care of the ball and doesnt make many mistakes, they could be vulnerable----the Lions are for real and they could knock the Pack off.

I'm concerned, have said all along the Lions are worrisome! Read a good article in the paper today about the defense, made me feel a little better! However, I'm still concerned about passing yards!

I'm hoping Mike Neal can play, he is back to practice on a limited basis so I'm thinking let him ease into games and be ready for the Lions! Collins has been at Lambeau, plus going to the games, hopefully he is giving some insight to the younger players.

Lions should win this one. Packers are due for a loss.

Ah, that's what they said before San Diego.

I was in San Diego and thought the Packers could lose until 32 seconds were left in the game.

The Packers are a great dome team and Detroit is going to save their best stuff for teams that could knock them out of the wild card, since they can't catch Green Bay and win the division.

They won't have issues with crowd noise like other teams, main concern is QB protection.

Aside from the defense issues, a more complete team with their receiving group.

Due for a loss? Hmmm, not a problem with their record unless they would have several losses, highly unlikely.

Detroit never saves their best stuff. It's been on display every game. They've been in every game and are heading in the right direction for the first time in years. If you think they're not taking a nationally televised game seriously, a game that means so much, on Thanksgiving, then you know nothing about Lions football. This is tradition. The Pack is going down.
