Snapping streaks part of the Lions' turn-around

The Lions, who haven’t won on the road against the Packers since 1991, are 3.5-point favorites on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

That has something to do with the fact that Aaron Rodgers and the other Packers’ starters might not play the whole game.

How much does that streak mean to the Lions?

“It will be a nice one to get off our resume, but you know, whether it’s the Green Bay Packers or whoever — it’s the next game on our schedule and that’s the most important thing,’’ coach Jim Schwartz said. “It’s hard to hold Matt Stafford accountable for something that happened in 1992, 93, 94, 95, and so on. That doesn’t mean a whole lot. It’s more important what we’re doing this week, what we do in practice yesterday, today, tomorrow, and how we play on Sunday — not what happened 20 years ago. But it would be nice to get it off our resume so to speak.”

I think there are two reasons they’d like to snap that streak. One they want a win to get to 11-5 for the season and to earn the fifth seed.

Two, they get tired of answering questions that really had nothing to do with them and this would put an end to that.
