Bottom Line: The Defense Must Feast On The Packers!

In their Week 11 bout with the Chicago Bears, the Detroit Lions' defense, despite getting the job done when the game was on the line, showed areas needing improvement for future challenges. While the Lions' offense has demonstrated its capability to triumph over teams like the Bears, there are valid concerns about replicating such success against the league's top-tier teams. However, today's game against the Green Bay Packers presents a prime opportunity for the Lions' defense to rebound and showcase their true potential, and the expectation is that they will rise to the occasion.
