NFL WEEK FOUR - TNF

TNF - NFL - WEEK Four

Thursday Sep. 28

OVER/UNDER OF THE WEEK

Detroit Lions -1 (-110) @ Green Bay Packers (-110) 45 O/U

WHERE: Lambeau Field Green Bay, Wisconsin

WHEN: 8:15 p.m. ET | Prime Video

CONDITIONS: IDEAL...6.9 MPH WIND Patchy Fog...


It’s been 37 years since the Detroits nave been favored against the Packers at Lambeau Field--but they have earned that status as this Dan Campbell team is starting to reflect their coach’s tenacity, heart, and commitment.


We got the -1 line early Monday morning and will stay with it, even though it has moved up to -2--but it really doesn’t matter; the Lions have more talent and one of the biggest surprises of the year: Jared Goff is a top five quarterback in the NFL.


I never thoughtI’d write that as a serious sentence.


Recall when Goff was hustled out of L.A. In exchange for Matt Stafford and a handful of draft picks; he was supposed to be on a permanent downward trajectory. Another “potential” franchise QB who would have to wear the dreaded “journeyman” or worse, /’first round bust” label.


Here’s his stat line for this year:

  • 2nd - net yards per passing play

  • 3rd YPP thrown

  • 5th best QB rating in football at 101.6.

  • 6th Comp %

  • 7th TDs

  • Only been sacked 3 times...


For his career:

  • 64.4%...as good as Big Ben and better than Matt Stafford--the guy he was traded for...

  • 93.1 QB Rate--better than Stafford, Montana, and Marino.

His sample size is smaller, but he is a lot better than people think...


It’s a whole different world when a seemingly underachieving player finds a good coach who believes in him.


I wonder how far he can take the Lions...


Green Bay


The Packers like far too many teams in recent years are ravaged by injuries--and way too many of the soft tissue variety--to skill players. Green Bay WR Christian Watson, S Zayne Anderson, and RB Aaron Jones all yanked a hammie since Week One.


If they play, they could be risking further damage. That won’t help rookie QB, Jordan Young.


The Home Dog Packers will face a clearly better offense in Detroit--and a better defense.


Divisional game on a short week--play the Under.


Lions 21
