Tonight marks the second Thursday Night Football contest of the season after Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit presided over Amazon's season opener last week featuring the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants. That game was not terribly exciting, but that was pretty much expected. The Niners' defense is very, very good and the Giants' offense very, very bad. This week, however, brings promise of a much more interesting matchup.
Who's playing and how can you watch, you ask? We're glad to provide those answers for you.
Who is playing Thursday Night Football tonight?
The Detroit Lions are playing the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football tonight at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15pm ET.
Who won the last matchup between the Packers and Lions?
The Lions won the last game against the Packers and boy, what a night it was. Detroit traveled to Lambeau Field in the final regular season game of the 2022 season. The Packers needed to win to earn a postseason berth. The Lions were eliminated from the playoff hunt mere hours before kickoff. Green Bay had eveything to play for. Yet the Lions, after years of getting destroyed by Aaron Rodgers, won the day and eliminated the Packers from postseason contention. It ended up being Rodgers' final game in a Packers uniform. It was storybook stuff, really, and why the hype train for the Lions gained so much steam leading into the 2023 season.
