The Green Bay Packers (-4) will be looking to stuff the Detroit Lions (+4) turkeys on Thanksgiving Day, at Ford Field.

The Green Bay Packers (9-1) are burning up their opponents with their pass game, thanks mostly to the superb arm of QB Bret Favre. Last week against the Carolina Panthers, Favre completed 22/30 for 218 YDS with 3 TDS. The Packers currently lead the NFL with 298 PASS YDS per game and they’ve got the 6th best points per game average, 25pts. One thing NOT in the Packers favor is their running game. They average 77 YDS a game. Defensively the Packers are SOLID, they have the 3rd best pts allowed total, 15pts, and they allow a low 92 YDS rushing. The Packers offense will be looking to air it out against the leagues worst pass defense.

The Detroit Lions (6-4) are coming off a disappointing 10-16 loss to the N.Y. Giants. QB Jon Kitna was intercepted late in the 4th quarter trying to make a late winning drive. Kitna was 28/43 for 377 YDS along with 1 TD and 3 INT. The Lions offense is good for 246 PASS YDS and a low 82 RUSH YDS. Defensively the only thing their good at is stopping the rush , which will be no good because the Packers don’t rush that much. They give up an average 256 PASS YDS and they allow an average 24pts a game.

Bottom Line: It’s going to be a long day for the Lions trying to stop Bret Favre from throwing the ball. The Packers are 4-0 on the road and the Lions are 4-1 at home. Let’s go Packers!
