Quick Take: Lions could give uneven Pack fits

NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:
Why this game is intriguing: The Detroit Lions have underperformed their way out of playoff contention, making for a rare relative dud on Sunday night. Whether or not the Lions can play spoiler against the rival Green Bay Packers and knock them off the top perch in the NFC North doesn't seem quite so sexy. Still, the Packers are worth watching. They rebounded from a humbling performance against the Giants with an uneven win over the Vikings that saw Aaron Rodgers get hit too much. If that's a problem against Ndamukong Suh and the aggressive Lions front, life could get real interesting for the Pack. And not in a good way. That, alone, will keep us watching.
