Lions head to Lambeau Field on Sunday

The disappointing Detroit Lions will look to snap their four-game losing streak when they play the Packers in Green Bay next Sunday evening.
This after falling to the Indianapolis Colts 35-33 on the last play of the game at Ford Field in Detroit on Sunday as Andrew Luck hit Donnie Avery for 14-yards and the touchdown. Luck was 24-of-54 for 391 yards and four TD's on the day overcoming three interceptions to outplay the Lions' Matthew Stafford who also went over 300 yards while hitting Calvin Johnson 13 times for 171 yards and a score.
Green Bay received an unlikely assist from the Seattle Seahawks in the Packers' race for the NFC North Division crown. Seattle, who were just 1-5 on the road this season, went into Soldier Field and surprised the Chicago Bears 23-17 in overtime. There was more than a little irony that it was the Seahawks who helped Green Bay back into a tie for the lead in the Division, after infamously robbing the Packers in the third week of the season in a game so poorly officiated that it singlehandedly led to the end of the NFL lockout of their game officials. Robbie Gould had given the Bears hope as time expired in regulation with a 46-yard field goal to send the game into overtime, but rookie Russell Wilson led Seattle to the victory.
Up in Green Bay, Adrian Peterson had 210 yards rushing for the Minnesota Vikings, but the visitors couldn't build on a 14-10 half-time advantage as they lost 23-14 to the Packers. Aaron Rodgers was an extremely efficient 27-of-35 for 286 yards and a score to rebound from the loss last time out to the New York Giants.
The Packers are 26.00 to win the Super Bowl while the Giants are 1001.00.
