Detroit may make it sound that simple, but it¡¯s anything but. The Packers are one of the hottest teams in the NFL, winners of five straight games, three of them by double digits. They have a quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, who hasn¡¯t thrown an interception since Nov. 13.
Meanwhile, the Lions need to find themselves a bit. Their defense, which hadn¡¯t allowed more than 20 points in a game for two months, gave up 42 to Dallas. Their offense, which has been good with the ball most of the season, has six turnovers in the past three weeks. Quarterback Matthew Stafford has more rushing touchdowns (two) than passing touchdowns in that span.

With the Cardinals and Rams out of the playoffs, expect Fitzgerald to play and play well. Brown owns one outright receptions title and tied Julio Jones for a second one in 2015. His resume might stay that way after Sunday. Regardless, Brown’s four straight 100-catch seasons say plenty about his production.
Bell will fall short of 2,000 total yards: In a season that merited MVP consideration, Bell produced 1,884 total yards in 12 games, including 75 catches for 616 yards. He would have eclipsed 2,000 total yards without his three-game suspension. But Bell is too valuable to trot out there Sunday, especially considering his insane workload — averaging 28 touches per game for the season. He needs the rest more than anyone.

But Taylor’s statistics declined in multiple areas this season compared to 2015, including completion percentage, rating, QBR and yards per attempt.
Detroit couldn¡¯t have that anymore. Not now. Not after a 42-21 loss Monday night to the Dallas Cowboys and less than a week away from the game that will define its season. There was no group discussion about it afterward. Multiple players said it wasn¡¯t brought up.
