The Packers are 7-4 on the season and 6-5 against the spread, but they have lost four of their last five coming into tonight, including an 18-16 loss at home to the Lions on Nov. 15. When the Packers are struggling, the focus turns to Aaron Rodgers, who is having a good season with 2,684 passing yards with 24 touchdowns and four interceptions. However, Rodgers hasn’t been exactly lighting is up as of late. He has been held under 60 percent completion in four straight games and has had under 215 yards in three of his last five games.

For tonight’s game, Rodgers has an over/under of 23.5 completions and 275.5 yards according to the sportsbooks. Rogers was 35 of 61 passing for 33 yards with two touchdowns against the Lions a few weeks back, but Green Bay was chasing Detroit for a good part of the game. The 4-7 Lions come into today having won three straight and they have the 16th ranked pass defense, allowing 242.2 yards per game. Detroit has held its last three opponents to 16 points or less and has seen an improved pass rush in recent weeks. Rodgers could find himself under fire often tonight.
