The Green Bay Packers are technically 16-0, dating back to last season and including last year's playoffs. This week, they face off against the Detroit Lions, a team most people believe has the best chance to stop Green Bay's undefeated streak. Most are predicting a high-scoring affair, and who are the experts predicting to win during turkey time this week?
Vinnie Iyer at the Sporting News joins the majority of pundits picking the Packers.
Who needs conservative run-oriented offenses? With quarterbacks such as Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford and explosive receivers such as Jordy Nelson and Calvin Johnson, expect both teams to fling the ball around, knowing it will likely take at least five touchdowns to win the game.
Here's the problem: Rodgers is the master of throwing to his best option-on almost every down. As well as Stafford has played this season, no quarterback in the league can beat Rodgers at his own game.
Peter King picks the Packers, and surprisingly foresee only 56 total points being scored. The panel at CBS Sports has four out of five picking Green Bay. ESPN has three takers for the Lions, but it's the minority opinion.
