The Green Bay Packers play the Detroit Lions on Thursday.  Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m. ET.  A link to the live radio broadcast is provided below.

Green Bay (5-5-1) visits Ford Field on Thanksgiving for an NFC North divisional battle.  The Packers trail a half game behind Detroit and Chicago, which are tied for first in the division. 

With Aaron Rodgers still sidelined with a fractured collarbone, the reins pass to recently re-signed backup Matt Flynn.

"I've been hitting the playbook hard and studying, asking a lot of questions from Aaron, all the receivers, linemen - how they want things called, and how they want the operation to go," Flynn said, via ESPN.  "So I feel good."

Flynn entered in the third quarter of last week's game against the Minnesota Vikings and helped overcome a 16-point deficit to ultimately force a 26-26 tie.  Flynn is the fourth quarterback to start this season for Green Bay after Rodgers, Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien.

Detroit, meanwhile, hopes to keep their place atop the NFC North with a win on Thursday.  The Lions (6-5) are neck-and-neck with the Bears and cannot afford to drop any games down the closing stretch of the season.

"I think we all need to remind ourselves, like we did yesterday, that the fact is that there's five games remaining, and we're in first place," Lions coach Jim Schwartz said.  "We need to conduct ourselves accordingly, and we can't worry what happened last week, we can't worry about what happened yesterday.  We need to worry about what's going to happen in the future.  I like our team's mindset."
