Early line is -14.5, We'll cover that.

When you need something to lift your football spirits, just turn to the Lions.

If the sputtering Vikings can win against them, then the Packers should have few problems... especially with Stafford and Best nursing injuries.

My only concern is the line being able to handle Suh. After Monday night's game, I have some doubts.

I wonder if the Packers are wearing their throwbacks for this game.

I remember reading that they'll wear them Dec 5.
