This game matches two teams wrapping up two distinctly different seasons: The Packers, at 13-3, are headed to the playoffs as the NFC’s No. 1 seed; the Lions, at 2-13-1, will own either the No. 1 or No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, depending on what the 2-14 Jacksonville Jaguars do in their finale. And for as much as Packers coach Matt LaFleur pushed back on the idea that the game is meaningless for the Packers as they get set to enjoy a first-round playoff bye, the fact of the matter is that even if he plays some of his most important players (quarterback Aaron Rodgers, wide receiver Davante Adams, et al.), they definitely won’t be playing the entire game.
