Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn't been afraid to run his mouth while enjoying a string of dominant years in the NFC North. This division has changed, though, and Rodgers is suddenly fighting for his playoff life in a do-or-die game against the Detroit Lions in Week 18.

It's safe to say Lions safety DeShon Elliott will keep Rodgers' past disrespect in mind when they face off on Sunday.

Elliott told reporters on Friday, "The way [Rodgers] carries himself, I don't like none of that [expletive]." The veteran defender went on to say this isn't just a Rodgers issue -- the Packers, as a whole, lack respect for Detroit.

The Lions don't need any more motivation given the stakes of Sunday night's clash. Green Bay needs to win this contest to make the playoffs, so Detroit can play spoiler and send a message to Rodgers by handing him a loss at home.

There's also a possibility Dan Campbell's team is fighting for a playoff spot in this matchup if the Seattle Seahawks lose Sunday afternoon. The Lions will know by the time they kick off against the Packers if their postseason hopes are on the line. Even if Detroit is eliminated by a Seahawks win, no one is expecting this team to make it easy for Green Bay.

All this seeding drama and past history sets the stage for what could be an all-time classic in primetime. The Packers are currenly listed as 4.5-point favorites ahead of this meeting, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
