The Detroit Lions need to win their final two games to have a shot at making the postseason.
That road got a little easier on Thursday when the New York Giants ruled out wide receiver Victor Cruz.
Cruz is the Giants’ leading receiver with 73 receptions for 998 yards and four touchdowns.
He suffered a concussion and sprained knee in the team’s 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday.
The Green Bay Packers will play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field. Game time is 4:30 Eastern Time.
It is still unclear as to whether quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play. That decision is to be made today.
