The NFL has flexed the Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers game to Sunday Night. It will be the first non 1p game time for the Lions all season.
The Lions tweeted out this notification on Monday afternoon.
The first instinct is to look at the weather. According to Weather.com Sunday Night in Green Bay will be about 27 degrees and have a chance of snow/rain.
The Detroit Lions offense has had some issues on the road and during out door games this season. That is one concern going into the storied Lambeau Field.
The other lingering issue is Aaron Rodgers is starting to play more like the Aaron Rodgers we are familiar with.
This game will have playoff implications for the Green Bay Packers no matter what. Unfortunately for the Lions they will be dependent on the outcome of the Seahawks vs Rams that is being played at 4:15p.
Get excited Detroit! The Lions are in Prime Time!
