NFL Monday Night Football 2019 Schedule: Where to Watch Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers, TV Channel, Live Stream, Odds

One of the most storied NFL rivalries rounds out Week 6, as the Green Bay Packers welcome the Detroit Lions in Wisconsin on Monday Night Football.

Any matchup between the two NFC North foes needs no introduction, but the 178th meeting between the two carries with it even more storylines than usual.

The Lions have not made the playoffs in two seasons but have won the last four games against Green Bay. The most recent of those meetings, saw Detroit embarrass Green Bay in front of its own fans in Week 17 last year, as Matt Patricia's men left Lambeau Field with a 31–0 win.

Impressive as the result was, it counted for little more than bragging rights as by then both teams had already been knocked out of the playoff race.

Monday's matchup, however, could have a much more significant impact as the Packers and the Lions are currently first and second in the NFC North.

The Packers laid down a marker in Week 5 with a 34–24 road win over the Dallas Cowboys that was more resounding than the scoreline suggested.

Aaron Jones rushed for 107 yards on 19 carries and finished with four rushing touchdowns as the Packers moved to 4–1.

After winning just once on the road last season—in Week 16 against the New York Jets—the Packers have already won both of their games away from Lambeau Field this season, beating Chicago and Dallas.

The Packers have won two of their three games at home and with the Lions and the Raiders visiting Lambeau Field in the next two weeks, they could feasibly go into their bye week at 6–1.

That would represent Green Bay's best start since 2015 and a remarkable turnaround for a team that has missed the playoffs in the past two seasons.

Before the Packers can look that far ahead, however, they have to take care of business against Detroit.

The Lions return from their bye week with a 2–1–1 record, with their only defeat coming against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Detroit has already won in Philadelphia this season and had it not been for a second-half meltdown, it would have left Arizona with a win in Week 1 instead of having to settle for a tie.

With the Bears and the Minnesota Vikings both 3–2, the NFC North is arguably the most open division in the NFL and the next two games could be crucial for the Lions, who host Minnesota in Week 7.

Here's all you need to know ahead of Monday.
