When the postseason arrives the Packers record against N-F-C North opponents could be a factor. Green Bay will try to stay unbeaten within the division tonight when it hosts Detroit on Monday Night Football. The Packers opened the 2019 season with back-to-back wins over division foes Chicago and Minnesota, and bring a four-and-one overall record into the game, while Detroit is two-one-and-one. The Lions have beaten the Packers four straight times. Kickoff tonight is 7:20, coverage starts at 5 on our sister station, 107.1 The Bull.
Green Bay will be without their top receiver, as Davante Adams has been ruled out for the second straight game with a toe injury. Rookie safety Darnell Savage and tight end Robert Tonyan are also “Out” tonight.
