LIONS, 23-20

WHO WILL WIN AND WHY

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - LEADING OFF -

Con­sen­sus line: Lions by 21⁄ 2 Pre­dic­tion: The Pack­ers are 25-1 vs. the Lions in the state of Wis­con­sin since 1992, with the de­feat com­ing two years ago. If the Lions can shut down RB Aaron Jones the way they did Le’Veon Bell in Week 8, they’ll put the game in Hund­ley’s hands — right where their de­fense wants it. Hund­ley avoided back- break­ing turnovers in his first start; can he do it again, this time against one of the league’s more op­por­tunis­tic de­fenses? Stafford, with the help of WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, will cure for what ails their red-zone at­tack. Detroit finds a way to win a close game, and both teams find them­selves at 4-4 for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive sea­son.
