In an offense that has been explosive, new addition Reggie Bush has given quarterback Matthew Stafford another weapon. Green Bay has been effective stopping the run, but has struggled against the pass, which is where Bush can excel out of the backfield. A key to this game will be how Green Bay can handle Bush.
Detroit also has an aggressive defensive line that can take advantage of a Green Bay offensive line that has struggled to protect quarterback Aaron Rodgers this season. The Packers will have to keep Rodgers on his feet to keep pace with the Lions on offense.
The history of this rivalry favors the Packers, especially in Green Bay. The Packers have won the last 22 games against the Lions at Lambeau Field. We can’t be certain who will emerge as the victor, but it’s undoubtedly going to be one of the more entertaining NFL clashes of Week 5.
