Game #3 - Detroit Lions (0-2-0) vs Green Bay Packers (0-2-0) - Open Thread

VS
The 0-2 Detroit Lions and 0-2 Green Bay Packers matchup today with only one thing on their minds: getting a win. Both teams can't afford to drop another game, and stay winless. In this NFC North rivalry, it should definitely be a good one.

For the Lions, this game is a must-win. The schedule doesn't get any easier after this game, and they cannot continue to lose. Thoughts of getting to .500 at the end of the season will be gone if Detroit does lose today.

The Green Bay Packers, led by quarterback Brett Favre, also needs a win in this game. Things have not gone very good for them in recent memory, so Favre will be on a mission to get things going in the right direction.
