I don't like the scheduling either but the Packers/Lions game affects the only remaining NFC playoff spot no matter what. I have read that the Lions coach, Dan Campbell, is known for getting his team to play all out even in meaningless games, which this one will be for the Lions should Seattle win the earlier game. So it may not be as bad as it looks if Seattle wins. I also heard that the Lions are planning on packing extra tin foil disrupting electronic equipment so that should help their chances.
Since I am at the bottom, why not go for some upsets.
Also, if this works out, we may see not only a wildcard team with a sub 500 record, but may see 1 or 2 division winners at sub 500.
If that happens, I am sure I will see a landslide of "bush league" comments like we see on this site and social media when it happens in the CFL.
Detroit will play all out because even if eliminated already, divisional rivals love to play spoiler plus in this case nobody but those Green Bay people wants Rodgers to win though of course picks are usually made for gambling purposes after setting the emotions aside.
