Here's a look at a key matchup heading into Green Bay’s Week Four battle with the division-rival Lions

Lions DTs Ndamukong Suh and Corey Williams vs. the Packers’ interior line

Even though the Lions’ defense is ranked 30th overall and 32nd in rushing yards allowed after Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson posted a monster outing against Detroit last week, both Suh and Williams provide a major upgrade up front from last year's interior line. Suh was the second overall pick in the draft for good reason, and Williams is a solid pro who always has been able to provide decent push both inside and outside.

Green Bay’s offensive line is coming off a very lackluster outing against the Bears. But C Scott Wells, the only lineman in Week Three who was not charged with a penalty, and ORG Josh Sitton have been rock solid for the most part. OLG Daryn Colledge’s flaws have been well-documented, but he’s as feisty as they come and figures to have his game face on this Sunday.
