Before Week 9 of the NFL season can come to the end, the Detroit Lions will go on the road to play the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. The game is slated to be on ESPN at 8:30 p.m. EST.

The Lions come into tonight’s game with a 3-4 record, good for third in the NFC North. Detroit has dropped its last three games after starting the season 3-1. Matthew Stafford has been solid once again this season, throwing for 1,851 yards, 12 touchdowns and four interceptions. The struggles have come in the rushing attack, where the Lions are 28th in the NFL in yards this season.

The Packers come into tonight’s game with a 4-3 record, good for second in the NFC North behind the Vikings. Green Bay has struggled without Aaron Rodgers, dropping the last two since Rodgers was lost for the season with a collarbone injury. Brett Hundley has struggled while stepping in for Rodgers at quarterback, passing for 244 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions.
