Five Predictions: Packers vs Lions – 2020 Week 2

The 1-0 Packers, coming off a 14-win season, take on the 0-1 Lions, coming off a 3-win season. But this is a division game and division games are always tougher than we think. With a limited sample size, let’s make some predictions for this week.

Aaron Rodgers Keeps Going Off

This is the easiest prediction I will make all year.

Final Score: Packers 34, Lions 29
