Lions vs. Packers Flexed to Sunday Night Football


Jan 2, 2023

Sunday’s matchup between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers has been flexed into the Sunday Night Football slot, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

This decision comes with a bit of controversy. The Lions would be eliminated before kickoff and have nothing to play for if the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Los Angeles Rams at 4:25 p.m. ET, leaving this game meaningless. From a neutral perspective, let’s hope that is avoided so that there is still a lot on the line when these two square off on Sunday night. If the Rams can pull off the upset, it makes this a win-or-go-home game between the bitter rivals. A tie would send Detroit into the postseason, while Green Bay would miss the playoffs for just the third time since 2009.
