Fox Sports Detroit:
Green Bay Packers
Washington State Cougars
The Detroit Lions head to Lambeau Field in Green Bay for Sunday nights nationally televised game with a 4-8 record, a four-game losing streak and next-to-no-chance at making the playoffs.
Here are five storylines to follow:
The last time the Lions beat the Packers on the road ...
Quarterback Matthew Stafford was 3 years old.
Coach Jim Schwartz was the secondary coach at North Carolina Central.
Team president Tom Lewand had just graduated from the University of Michigan and was serving as an environmental advisor for the governor of Indiana.
General Manager Martin Mayhew was a cornerback for the Washington Redskins.
And kicker Jason Hanson wasnt even a Lion yet. He was a senior at Washington State.
Its been a long, long time.
You have to go all the way back to Dec. 15, 1991, the year the Lions went to the NFC championship game.
Since then, theyve lost 20 straight regular-season games on the road to Green Bay, a NFL record. Seventeen of those were at Lambeau Field, the othe...

That group now consists of Johnson, Mike Thomas, Brian Robiskie and Kris Durham the...
Ndamukong Suh has been criticized by many different sources, but he has generally had the support of the Detroit Lions organization. His coaches have backed him and so have his teammates. Until now.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports quoted an anonymous teammate of Suh who was critical of the defensive lineman’s behavior.
“Yeah, we’re loaded,” the anonymous player told Cole following...
Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan mentioned that they intend to get RB Joique Bell more involved in their offense in the coming weeks.
“Him rattling off really the three explosive runs that we’ve had this year certainly gives him more opportunities I think in our offense, not just in the games,” said Linehan, via DetroitLions.com. “I think you’ll see him...
Ndamukong Suh is one of the most physically talented players in the NFL. He’s gifted and has the physical skills — enormous size with speed and quickness to go along with it. Yet, Suh has by and large underachieved in his young NFL career, making headlines for just about everything other than finding success on the football field. In fairness, however, underachieving goes hand...
Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young mangled his finger so badly while making a tackle a few weeks ago that he actually considered amputating it.
Young says the injury occurred when he made a tackle on Green Bay Packers running back James Starks during a Week 11 loss. He says it hurt after the tackle, but he didn’t remove his glove to investigate it because he was fearful...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz says he and his staff are very self-critical of decisions they make after every game.
They go through their entire game plan each week and discuss what they would do differently if the same situation comes up in another game.
He says it's important for coaches...

Two questions will arise this Sunday night: 1) When was the last time the Detroit Lions went into Wisconsin and took a victory?And 2) Who was the Green Bay Packers' quarterback that day? The answers at these questions are: 1991 (the last season the Lions won a playoff game) and Mike Tomczak (yes, the same Tomczak who was a backup for Jim McMahon as a a rookie for the Chicago...
After intentionally lining up in the wrong spot in Detroit's loss to Green Bay last month, receiver Titus Young is no longer part of the Lions' equation. His childish antics wouldn't fly in Green Bay's carefully crafted locker room.
In spite the external stones being flung at Detroit Lions bench boss Jim Schwartz, there are still plenty of supporters. One comes in the unlikely form of a divisional foe: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings.
