Game Facts

Detroit Lions facts

No other NFL teams have played every year since 1932, when the Packers first played the Lions, then known as the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans. Including a pair of playoff clashes in the early 1990s, this week marks Game No. 170 in the all-time series.

In 12 career games against the Packers, receiver Calvin Johnson has 71 catches for 1,163 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Last Sunday, Johnson had six catches for 83 yards.

The last time the teams played was Nov. 28, 2013 at Ford Field. The Lions won, 40-10. In that game, Detroit scored 23 unanswered points in the second half.

The Lions have lost 23 straight games to the Packers in Wisconsin, including a playoff game in 1994.

Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is the grandson of former Packers head coach Vince Lombardi.

On Sunday, quarterback Matthew Stafford was 27-of-48 for 291 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

Against the Panthers in Week 2, the Lions defense held Carolina to 62 yards rushing.

The defense gave up 251 yards passing in the loss. 

Entering Sunday, all four NFC North teams are 1-1.

Green Bay Packers facts

The Packers are 7-2-1 in regular season games when running back Eddie Lacy has at least 20 carries. In Week 2, Lacy carried the ball just 13 times.

The Packers are one win away from becoming the second team in NFL history with 700 regular-season victories. The team (699-538-37) would join the Chicago Bears as the only teams to win 700 regular-season games.

Receiver Jordy Nelson is the only player in the NFL to record at least nine catches in each of the first two games this season.

Nelson leads the league with 292 receiving yards.

Linebacker Julius Peppers has played in 98 consecutive games, which is the third-longest active streak among NFL linebackers.

The Packers have scored more regular-season points (3,541) against the Lions than any other team.

The Packers have won 15 of the last 17 times the two teams have played.

Dating back to 2000, Green Bay is 5-1 against the Lions in September, including a 3-1 mark in Detroit.

The Packers are 14-2 (.875) against the Lions under head coach Mike McCarthy. That record ties Seattle (14-2 vs. St. Louis) for the third-best winning percentage by a team against a divisional opponent since 2006.

In Sunday's comeback win against the Jets, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was 25-of-42 for 346 yards and three touchdowns. His passing yard total was the highest in the league in Week 2.
