The final games of the 2006 season are here for the Detroit Lions, and now this has gotten to the point where losing only means a higher draft pick. With most of the offensive line injured and various players from other positions on the offense and defense out, it'll just be a matter of surviving for Detroit.

Green Bay has had a less than successful season as well, but at least they're not at the complete bottom of the league. The Packers are going to be playing hard at home for the second to last time today, meaning that this may be one of the last chances to get a look at Brett Favre. You can imagine they will be fighting to get him a win.

On paper, Detroit really doesn't look to have any relative chance here. However, it always seems that in these situations they find a way to come out on top. Since the Lions are 2-11, I really don't care if they win or not. A win is a win, but at the same time, a loss helps to get the #1 draft pick, which we have never seen before in this Matt Millen era of mediocrity. Either way, hopefully it isn't a total embarrassment.
