WATCH: Packers hype Lions matchup on TNF with a movie trailer
The Green Bay Packers’ 18-16 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 10 is still fresh. In that game, the Packers lost to the Lions at Lambeau Field for the first time since 1991.
The rematch is set for this Thursday at Ford Field, as the Lions’ focus has now shifted to sweeping the Packers for the first time since that same year. Green Bay wants to avoid that embarrassment, along with the frustration of losing five games in six weeks.
This Thursday Night Football matchup is huge for the Packers (7-4), whose hopes for an NFC North title would take a serious hit with a loss to the Lions (4-7). Green Bay is currently .500 in divisional play; a loss would drop the team to 2-3 in the division.
The Packers want their fans to be pumped for this primetime matchup, so they made a movie trailer for the high-stakes contest. Get hyped on it in the video player below, courtesy of the team’s official Twitter account.
