Will Lions or Packers Be More Motivated?

The now 0-15 Lions have many believing that a winless season is not only possible, but probable. This is 0for08, FanHouse's eye on the Detroit Lions and their quest for a winless season.

Even if you vehemently dislike the Ford family or Rod Marinelli, you're probably not openly rooting for the Detroit Lions to suffer through the humiliation of an 0-16 season. If you are, may Santa deliver you the proverbial lump of coal Thursday morning.

Detroit's last chance to avoid the embarrassing first-time achievement comes Sunday at Lambeau Field, where they will take on the Packers. Detroit hasn't won in Wisconsin since 1991, and they haven't won anywhere since 2007. They're a nine-point underdog to a team that has lost five straight.

Marinelli has already talked to his team about avoiding the 0-fer. Surely, the topic has been brought up as the team prepares for the Packers.

On the flip side, while they haven't talked much about it yet, the Packers have plenty to discuss this week, too.
