Rewind: Aaron Rodgers had the bye week to stew over his performance in the Week 3 loss at the Cincinnati Bengals. That game snapped Rodgers’ NFL-record streak of 41 games without multiple interceptions. He threw two against the Bengals, although one was the result of a poor route on a slant by receiver James Jones.

Fast-forward: Since he became a starter in 2008, Rodgers has never lost a game that he has completed against this week's opponent, the Detroit Lions. In that stretch, he has an 8-1 overall record against them, but the only loss came when he was knocked out of the Dec. 12, 2010, game at Ford Field because of a second-quarter concussion. The Packers lost that game 7-3.

Big numbers: In nine career starts against the Lions, Rodgers has a combined passer rating of 111.4 and has completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 2,285 yards with 18 touchdowns and only five interceptions.

Prediction: Rodgers will continue his dominance of the Lions, who are allowing 268 passing yards per game. Rodgers will exceed that. He has thrown for more than 300 yards in four of his past five regular-season games dating to last season and will make it five of six on Sunday at Lambeau Field.
