Packers Look to End Losing Streak at Home Against Lions
The Packers have history on their side as they look to snap a two-game losing streak Sunday at Lambeau Field.
Green Bay faces divisional foe Detroit, who hasn't won a game on Wisconsin soil since 1991. The Lions haven't had much success anywhere this season, winning a league-low one game through the first half of the season.
The Packers, who haven't lost at Lambeau Field since January 2014, are hoping a return home will boost their fortunes after back-to-back road losses at Denver and Carolina. Sunday marks four weeks since the Packers most recent win, a home triumph over the San Diego Chargers.
Mike McCarthy said this week that James Starks is his number one choice at running back against the Lions. Starks has bypassed Eddie Lacy on the depth chart thanks in part to Lacy's struggles and inability to stay healthy this season.
Sunday's game marks the beginning of a four-game stretch against NFC North foes. After Sunday, the Packers travels to Minnesota, then host the Bears before heading to Detroit to face the Lions.
