Today's Packers vs Lions live stream is a Turkey Day rematch between these two NFC North rivals. Jared Goff and company were able to go into Green Bay for their Week 4 matchup and come out with a 34-20 win. Veteran running back David Montgomery took the Packers for a career-high three touchdowns while racking up 121 yards on the ground. Now, Green Bay will look to avoid a fifth straight loss to the Lions in this NFL live stream.

The Packers (4-6) have fallen on hard times since that Week 4 loss. They were (2-1) heading into that game, then lost four straight while growing pains in the post-Rodgers era began to mount. Quarterback Jordan Love has thrown 10 interceptions this season — only the Bills’ Josh Allen and Commanders’ Sam Howell have thrown more. Love is also ranked 23rd in the NFL with a passer rating of 83.8. Rodgers never put up a rating below 91 in his 15 years as the Packers’ starter.  

The good news for Green Bay fans is that they are coming off a win, edging out the Chargers 23-20 last week at Lambeau Field. Love put together one of the best starts of his young career throwing for a career-high 322 yards and two touchdowns on 27-of-40 passing. Both of Love’s touchdown throws came in the second half to help the Packers secure the win.

Meanwhile, Detroit enters this matchup fresh off an incredible Week 11 come-from-behind win over the Bears. Detroit trailed 26-14 late in the fourth quarter before they rattled off 17 points in the final three minutes of the game to lock up a 31-24 victory. Montgomery punched in the go-ahead touchdown from the 1-yard line to put the Lions over the top. Goff threw three interceptions in the win but shook that off to throw for 115 yards on 10-of-12 passing and a touchdown in the Lions' last three possessions.  

At (8-2) the Lions not only own the second-best record in football, but they’re also off to the franchise’s best start since John F. Kennedy was the President of the United States. Dating back to Week 9 of last season, the Lions are 16-4, so it's no stretch to call these Lions red-hot.

DraftKings has the Lions as 8-point favorites against the Packers. The over/under is 46.5 points. Detroit should easily win this game, but they're also 37-44-2 in their previous 83 Thanksgiving Day games. So no guarantees in this Turkey Day matchup.
