Fan feedback

   Will the 
  Lions finish the season without a win? Why can't the 
  Packers hang on to late leads? 
   **What are your thoughts?**

Lead changes late: Even if the Lions fall into a hole, there's still hope for that first W, as the Packers have squandered late leads in three of their last four games. In fact, Green Bay also squandered a fourth-quarter lead in its Week 2 win, before storming back.

Rookie rushing milestone:Lions running back Kevin Smith leads the team with 884 yards and seven rushing TDs. The third-round pick out of Central Florida will likely finish the season as the sixth rookie in franchise history to lead the club in both statistical categories. Last week he ran for 111 yards against New Orlenas and now faces a Green Bay defense that has given up 133.9 yards per game on the ground this year.
