Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions (8-8) demolished the Chicago Bears with a 41-10 win at home last Sunday afternoon to keep Detroit’s playoff chances alive. Goff completed 21-of-29 for 255 yards and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions while RB Jamaal Williams rushed 22 times for 144 yards and a touchdown in the win. The Lions, who have not made the playoffs since 2016, can secure a spot in the postseason with a win against the Packers on Sunday night and will need the Seattle Seahawks (8-8) to lose their game against the LA Rams on Sunday (4:25 PM ET).
The Lions have not won a division title since 1993 or a playoff game since the 1991 season. Additionally, since firing former head coach Jim Caldwell after the 2017 season, the Lions have finished last in the NFC North in each of the last 4 seasons, losing over 10 games each time.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (8-8) pulled off a dominant 41-17 win over the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday. Rodgers went 15-of-24 for 159 passing yards and a touchdown and also added one rush for two yards and a touchdown. RB A.J. Dillon, TE Robert Tonyan, DB Keisean Nixon, and safety Darnell Savage all scored touchdowns in Sunday’s victory. A win for the Packers on Sunday night would mark the team’s 4th straight playoff appearance.
The Lions and Packers met earlier this season in Week 9 at Ford Field where Detroit won 15-9.
