The Lions have just four wins under their belt, while the Packers lead the NFC North with an 8-4 record. Having only won the four games, it's somewhat surprising that NFL football odds (click to view) only have the Lions as a one touchdown underdog.

Muy Frio: Aaron Rodgers

I drafted me first too Juan… In most fantasy leagues, Aaron Rodgers was the first QB taken and quite possibly the #1 overall pick.
