The Detroit Lions will be featured on primetime television in 2021. 

With an outspoken head coach in Dan Campbell, the Lions will head into Lambeau Field during Week 2 of the NFL season, and be featured on Monday Night Football. 

There will be no shortage of storylines for both organizations, with different expectations for the two teams this upcoming season. 

For the Packers, the drama surrounding veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers has dominated the headlines the past few weeks. 

Rodgers, 37, has become increasingly frustrated with the direction of the Packers, based on the team's last couple of drafts and the less-than-stellar communication between himself and the front office.

Star wideout Davante Adams has recently stated on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" that his relationship with the Packers would change if Rodgers left the organization. 

“We’ve established a lot together. It would change a lot, man. It doesn’t mean I’d be gone, but I’d definitely have to do some extra thinking if my guy wasn’t here," Adams told Cowherd. "A lot is still being figured out on his end. So, it’s tough for me to get into the specifics and speak on it. 

“Obviously, I would love to. Can’t wait until I can tell you he’s back and we’re back doing our thing we’ve been doing. But, for now, you’ve got to iron out a few things. Hopefully, I’ll be back on the show, and we’ll be celebrating taking shots and what not.”

For Campbell, he will be looking to instill the proper culture for a roster desperately in need of a new identity. 

Detroit is attempting to stockpile as many gritty players as general manager Brad Holmes can find. 

A Week 2 divisional matchup could be just what is needed for Campbell & Co. to showcase why Detroit will become the next destination that players should gravitate towards.
