For the Green Bay Packers base, it was a feeling of strength and jubilation after Week 1 as Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense flexed their muscles against the Minnesota Vikings. For the Detroit Lions, however, it was only more heartbreak. After leading the Chicago Bears for most of the game, the Lions blew the lead late, before rookie D'Andre Swift dropped a game-winning touchdown with seconds remaining.

Now heading into Week 2, the Packers will host a desperate Lions squad. Let's see what the experts have to say about this matchup.
