When the 0-1 Packers host the 0-1 Lions at Lambeau Field on Monday night (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN and ESPN2), the winner will attempt to finish first in the weak NFC North. Green Bay looks to bounce back from a dire road loss to New Orleans in Jacksonville in Week 1 as Detroit seeks to maintain momentum from a failed late rally at home against San Francisco.
Aaron Rodgers downplayed the blowout and has made a strong recovery from such losses in the past with his Packers led by Matt LaFleur. The Lions hope that new leaders Jared Goff and Dan Campbell have an answer to their first victory together.

Prediction Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions
The Rodgers-Jones-Adams 1-2-3 punch will roll again and topple the Lions. The defense will also rally at home to make life difficult for Goff once the game’s script takes the race away from Detroit.
