Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers Free Pick & Predictions 10/6/13

Aaron Rodgers Lambeau LeapDetroit Lions @ Green Bay Packers 10/6/13 Pick: The 2013 NFL season continues with an NFC North rivalry game between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. You have to go back a long way to find the last time that the Lions won a game here at Lambeau Field (1991), but we think that there is a reasonable chance that they could get the job done in this one.

Detroit opened up the week at +6.5, one of the smaller numbers that we have seen in this rivalry at Lambeau of late. The Lions and Packers feature a ‘total’ of 52, and that’s the number that we are going to be going after in this game.

Those who go back and look at the history books will see that six of the last eight games in this series have failed to reach the ‘total’. However, history was meant to be busted to bits, and we’re here to tell you that this is going to be the highest scoring game of the weekend. Both teams will get into the 30s, and we have no reason not to believe that.

The Packers are one of the top teams in the NFL right now in terms of throwing the football. Detroit was missing DB Chris Houston and DB Rashean Mathis for most of last week’s game against the Chicago Bears, and the end result was QB Jay Cutler going 16-of-18 throwing the ball on the outside to his receivers. Think that QB Aaron Rodgers is salivating at this point? We surely do! Meanwhile, Detroit’s offensive line has been one of the best in the league this year, and it is keeping QB Matthew Stafford relatively clean. If the ground game can stay honest with RB Reggie Bush and RB Joique Bell, there is no reason to believe that this game won’t become a tremendous shootout. Both teams will get into the 30s as we see it, and maybe even into the 40s.
