Week 4 of the 2023 NFL season starts with an intriguing NFC North battle between two potential playoff teams. With both teams off wins last week, this Thursday Night Football showdown should have a ton of fireworks between these two teams that know each other so well. Who is playing tonight, what time does the game start, and how can you watch it?
Who Plays on Thursday Night Football Tonight?
- Teams: Detroit Lions (2-1) at Green Bay Packers (2-1)
- Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
The Detroit Lions will travel to Lambeau Field to take on their division-rival Green Bay Packers. The Lions are fresh off a quality win over a then-undefeated Atlanta Falcons team. The Lions were stout on defense as they were able to hold the Falcons to only six points on the day to pull out a 20-6 victory.
The Lions are now 2-1 on the season after a Week 1 statement win over the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, followed by a tough overtime loss to NFC playoff contender, the Seattle Seahawks.
Last week’s win against the Falcons put the Lions back over .500 early in the season, and with a road test against a tough division opponent, the Lions are looking to separate themselves in the close NFC North divisional race.
The Packers are coming off an important win themselves, although theirs was a much closer affair. Green Bay squeaked by the New Orleans Saints 18-17 in Week 3, giving them their second victory of the season, the first of which was a dominant road win against division foe Chicago Bears.
Sandwiched in between the two wins was a Week 2 loss to the Falcons that saw them in another tight contest, this time coming out on the losing end.
The Packers are looking to continue their decade-long hold on the NFC North, this time with QB Jordan Love at the helm. A win against the up-and-coming Lions will go a long way in reminding everyone who runs the north.
