(NEW YORK) — An old NFC rivalry will be revisited on Sunday when the Detroit Lions take on the Packers at Lambeau Field.
The Lions are 3-1 and are 2-0 already in their division. The Packers have won nine in a row at home dating back to last year.
“No. 1, it would be our fourth win of the year,” Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said. “No. 2, it would make us 3-0 in our division. It would give us another chance to put a loss on a division opponent.”
“We certainly want to end the streak (in Wisconsin), but that’s not our rallying cry. Our rallying cry is ‘Green Bay’ and ‘division game.’ Those are the things that will mean more to the players,” he added.
The Packers are 8-1 against the Lions with Aaron Rodgers starting at quarterback.
“I’m pretty anxious of course they know what we can do,” Packers wide receiver Jermichael Finley said. “We play them twice a year, it’s a division opponent, we need to go out and win it of course.”
