Thoughts pregame Lions, Packers

The Lions have made rallying from big deficits an art form this season, but it's unlikely to be the case today. Ideally, they get ahead early and make the Packers even more one-dimensional than usual. The crowd noise could really help out the Lions defense against the Packers passing game then.

- Clay Matthews Jr. get all the attention, but the Packers best linebacker this season has been Desmond Bishop. He is very underrated, a tackling machine with big-play capability.

- Key numbers for the Lions today are 90, as in rushing yards offensively, and four, as in their defense needs to get four sacks.

- Prediction: I see shootout today with the Lions winning 34-31 on a last-second field goal of 37 yards by Jason Hanson.
