Well, it is the middle of the week and while I am thankful that the Packers host the Lions this time around, a brutal away stretch after the bye week has me wondering about a few things.

After a "humbling" loss at the hands of the Broncos, the Packers hope to rebound against another unbeaten. The good news is that the loss to the Broncos was an AFC loss...this game against the Panthers is a game that might determine where a playoff repeat is played later in the year.
