Packers and Lions set to square off on Thanksgiving

Posted by packers.com on November 28, 2013 – 9:30 am

- The Packers will take on the Detroit Lions today in an NFC North matchup at Ford Field, the fourth Thanksgiving Day meeting between the teams in Detroit in the last seven seasons.

- Green Bay is currently third in the NFC North at 5-5-1 after a 26-26 tie against Minnesota at Lambeau Field this past Sunday. The Packers trail the Lions and Bears, who are both 6-5.

- This will mark the 21st all-time meeting between the clubs on Thanksgiving, with the Lions holding an 11-8-1 edge in the series on the holiday. Green Bay and Detroit first met on Thanksgiving in 1951 and went on to meet on the holiday in 13 consecutive seasons (1951-63).

- No two teams have faced off on Thanksgiving more than the Packers and the Lions, with Detroit and Chicago ranking No. 2 with 15 meetings.

- The Packers emerged victorious in each of the last three meetings with the Lions on Thanksgiving, winning games in 2007, 2009 and 2011.

- Green Bay’s current three-game winning streak in Thanksgiving contests is tied for the longest in franchise history (league games only), matching the Packers’ three-game winning streak on Thanksgiving from 1930-32 (victories against the Frankford Yellow Jackets, Providence Steam Roller and Brooklyn Dodgers).

- No other NFL teams have played every year since 1932, when the Packers and the Lions, then known as the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans, began their yearly home-and-home series.

- The rivalry actually kicked off in 1930 at City Stadium in Green Bay, a 47-13 Packers win. Two seasons later, the teams began a yearly series. Today marks meeting No. 169 in the all-time series (including playoffs).

- Green Bay has a 14-1 mark (.933) against the Lions under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, which is tied with New England (14-1 vs. Buffalo) for the best winning percentage by a team vs. a divisional foe since 2006. Dating back further, the Packers have won 15 of the last 16 against Detroit and 23 of the last 26 in the series.

- The Packers have won eight of 11 games (.727) at Ford Field against the Lions, the third-best winning percentage in the league among teams that have played four or more games at the stadium behind only Atlanta and Tampa Bay (both 3-1, .750).

- Green Bay has won the game leading into its Thanksgiving contest four of the last five times it has played on the holiday (2003, 2007, 2009, 2011).

- The Packers enter today’s game having won 14 of their last 17 regular-season games with one tie against NFC North foes. Green Bay’s .853 winning percentage in divisional contests over that span ranks No. 2 in the NFL behind only New England (.882, 15-2).

- Since 2006, Green Bay has a 34-11-1 (.750) regular-season record in NFC North contests (No. 2 in the NFL) and a 15-7 mark (.682) in divisional games on the road (No. 4 in the league).
WEARING THE STRIPES

- Today’s officiating crew includes referee Gene Steratore (114), umpire Bill Schuster (129), head linesman Wayne Mackie (106), line judge Jeff Seeman (45), field judge Bob Waggoner (25), side judge Mike Weatherford (116) and back judge Dino Paganelli (105).
