On Sunday Night Football, Amon-Ra St. Brown and his Detroit Lions teammates will be at Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. It will be a game that could be a winner take all game for the final playoff spot, or, the Lions could be eliminated by game time, depending on if the Seahawks beat the Rams earlier in the day. For St. Brown, whether or not a playoff spot is on the line, he wants to beat the Packers to move the Lions to 9-8 on the season.
What did Amon-Ra St. Brown say about beating Packers?
Whether or not a playoff spot ends up being on the line for the Lions, beating the Packers on Sunday Night Football is something St. Brown wants to take care of business.
“Yeah, I would say so for sure. I'm excited. My only two prime-time games have been in Lambeau Field at night so I can't wait to see the atmosphere,” St. Brown told ESPN. “I want to have a good performance but shoot, I want to win the game. That's the most important thing.”
“Whether Seattle wins or not, we want to, well for me personally, I want to have a winning season. I've never — last year, we only won three games,” said Amon-Ra St. Brown. “So, to have a winning season, I think is huge for this organization as a whole, and for this team moving forward. But, like you said, whether we're winning to go to the playoffs or winning to not let the Packers make the playoffs, either one is huge for us. We want a winning record at the end of the season.”
In 15 games this season, St. Brown has exactly 100 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns.
If the Rams beat the Seahawks earlier in the day, the Lions will still be alive in the NFC playoff picture. If the Seahawks win, the Lions would be eliminated from contention.
