Lions Readying to Host Packers in Turkeyday Battle

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are taking a six-game road winning streak to Detroit, where they'll renew a Thanksgiving rivalry.
The Packers take on the Lions in the holiday game they last played in 2003.
If Green Bay defeats their NFC North division foe, it would establish the third-longest road winning streak in franchise history.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy has yet to lose a division game on the road. Green Bay has won 13 of its past 14 games and is tied for the NFC's best record.
The Packers have won eleven of the past 13 meetings between the longtime rivals.
Green Bay is 9-1 and Detroit is 6-4 after losing two straight.
