The NFC North is 1-1 in Week 6. The Detroit LIons had the week off, while the Bears had a huge letdown game in Miami and the Vikings began to right the ship against the poor Cardinals team.

But we aren’t quite done with the Black and Blue division for the week. The Green Bay Packers are searching for answers after their devastating loss to the Lions last week. At 2-2-1, this game could be a crossroads for them. Lose, and you drop below .500 with the Rams and Patriots on deck. Win, and you could possibly turn the season around and take one of those games over the next two contests.

In their way tonight is the San Francisco 49ers—a team without their starting quarterback for the rest of the season. C.J. Beathard is doing his best to keep the team’s head above water, but the 49ers are sinking in the bay fast, and new head coach Kyle Shanahan may not be able to do anything about it until his precious Garoppolo is back.

Obviously, Lions fans will be pulling for the 49ers upset here, but the Packers are big favorites. Here’s how to watch tonight.
