The Packers entered the game with a share of first place in the NFC North. The Lions, on the other hand, had only one win. On top of that, the Lions had not beat the Packers at Lambeau since 1991 before Sunday (23 straight losses).
The Green Bay faithful must have been shocked by the Packers’ performance in Week 10. Even though they were coming off back-to-back losses, this looked like a game that would help the team rediscover its stride. That, of course, turned out not to be the case.
