Starter Pack: Lions confident coming in

A roundup of what’s happening on the Green Bay Packers beat.

For a team that hasn’t won in the state of Wisconsin since 1991, the Detroit Lions sure sound like a confident bunch as they prepare for Sunday’s game against the Packers at Lambeau Field.

At least their team’s vice chairman does.

As ESPN.com Lions writer Michael Rothstein wrote Tuesday night, Lions executive Bill Ford Jr., speaking during a charity dinner, had this to say about the Sunday’s game:

“Green Bay’s special and Lambeau Field, there’s a special feeling going into Lambeau,” Ford Jr. said. “Always has been. I hate going up there but when we win this week, it’s going to make it feel a heck of a lot better.”

The Packers have won 22 straight games against the Lions in Green Bay and Milwaukee (where they used to play a couple of home games a season).
