~The Packers have confirmed on Twitter that Matt Flynn will be the team’s starting quarterback when the Detroit Lions host Green Bay on Thanksgiving.

Flynn, a former backup in Green Bay, re-signed with the team on Nov. 12 to help fill the void left by Aaron Rodgers, who returned to practice this week but is still questionable for a return this season after suffering a fractured left clavicle during a Week 9 victory at home against the Chicago Bears.

Matt Flynn will make the start tomorrow in Detroit. Packer fans hope he finishes the game as well, and gets the team their 1st win since before the injury to Rodgers.

Thursday’s start for Flynn will mark the Packers’ 4th different quarterback this month; Green Bay had started just 3 different quarterbacks from September 1992 to October 2013.

Flynn will be backed up by Scott Tolzien, who played last Sunday in a 26-26 tie with the Minnesota Vikings. Seneca Wallace had started for a 27-13 loss against the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this month but was injured early in the 1st quarter. The last time Flynn played against the Lions in 2011, he went off for 480 yards and 6 touchdowns in a 45-41 win for Green Bay.

The Packers are currently 5-5-1 and 3rd in the NFC North.
