It’s a winner-take-all scenario for the NFC North title when the Green Bay Packers visit Ford Field to face the Detroit Lions on Sunday Night Football.

The Week 17 game is set to kick off at 8:30 p.m. Eastern and it will be televised by NBC. Play-by-play announcer Al Michaels and analyst Cris Collinsworth will be in the booth for the NFL’s regular season finale.

Both teams sit at 9-6 but have been heading in opposite directions lately. The surging Packers have won five straight, while the Lions have dropped two consecutive games to see their division lead disappear.

Green Bay won the first meeting this season, a 34-27 victory at Lambeau Field in Week 3. The Lions have been almost perfect at home with a 6-1 record and the Pack has gone 3-4 on the road.

Here are the details for the Lions-Packers game:
