The Green Bay Packers host their first game of the season at Lambeau Field Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
The Packers (1-1) are coming off a loss against Minnesota after two straight road games to start the year.
Since 2013, the series between the Packers and Lions is 3-3, with the last game ending in the Music City Miracle--Aaron Rodgers' Hail Mary game-winning throw to Richard Rodgers at Ford Field.
Green Bay will miss both linebacker Clay Matthews (ankle/hamstring) and safety Morgan Burnett (groin) who were listed as OUT on the Packers injury report. Cornerback Sam Shields will miss a second straight week with a concussion.
