S.F. in the (ET) zone again; Pack hopes to quiet Motown crowd

The 10-0 Green Bay Packers and 9-1 San Francisco 49ers go on the road this week to face two of their toughest opponents, knowing that if one of them loses, the other one will be in position to get a leg up in the all-important contest for home-field advantage in the playoffs.

The 49ers will attempt to go 5-0 in the Eastern time zone this season when they go to Baltimore for the first game in NFL history between head coaches who are brothers. The game can be seen live on NFL Network; kickoff is at 8:20 p.m. ET, or right about the time you'll be waking up from your post-Thanksgiving meal nap.

Green Bay, meanwhile, travels to Detroit to play one of the few teams that knows what if feels like to get the better of them. The Lions knocked Aaron Rodgers out of the game in a 7-3 victory at Ford Field late last season.

The Packers, 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Houston Texans are all in good position this week to get difficult road victories based on matchups, injuries, history and other circumstances.
