That's the longest streak in the history of the "Monday Night Football" franchise. A win in the primetime showdown at Lambeau Field will no doubt send a message to the rest of the division and the conference on which team is a serious contender. A few former players were among those who spoke out against the refs.

Both Green Bay and Detroit entered the clash with just one loss each and the victor would not only begin to separate themselves from the bunch but show they can be a true contender - an improvement from previous year when both the Lions and Packers missed the playoffs.

Detroit is 2-1-1 on the season and is coming off a bye.

Not only that, but the Packers have to play against Stafford and company twice a year. "It's not the environment". Rodgers isn't thought to be at any risk of missing the Packers' Monday night matchup against the Lions. But the two-time MVP will have to take the field for the second straight week without his favorite target. The Lions punted the ball back to Green Bay with 6:46 to play and didn't see the ball again: the Packers went 77 yards and kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired.

Tailback Kerryon Johnson, despite a critical fumble on an ill-advised goal-line stretch, registered 125 yards running the ball. Then Rodgers says: No, not tonight.

"For a young guy to do that, how can you not have confidence in that?" The Lions could be a playoff contender but might still be the worst team in the NFC North.

"He brings that fire, energy and juice", receiver Marvin Jones said.

Despite being the underdogs here, the Detroit Lions can absolutely win this will win if they can get their run game working against the Packers' questionable rushing defense.

The Lions' defense is vastly underrated so far this season, while the Packers might have the most overrated defensive unit in the league. Daniels spent his first seven seasons in Green Bay.
