The Green Bay Packers are sitting atop the NFC North coming off the bye with an 8-2 record. With six games remaining in the regular season, we’ll predict how the Packers will finish against their final six opponents.
The Packers have had a pretty tough schedule so far this season. Of the 10 opponents they have played, six of those teams have a .500 record or better. Of those teams below .500, one was a victory over the Bears in Week 1 at Chicago, which is never easy. Sitting at 8-2 and coming off a bye where they are almost completely healthy is crazy. If you would have told a Packers fan that this team would be 8-2 after 10 weeks, they would have been absolutely ecstatic.
With just six games left in the regular season and essentially a one-game lead over the Minnesota Vikings for first place in the division, the Packers have an opportunity to finish this season strong and possibly have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Of their remaining six games, two will be home and four will be on the road. The combined record of their remaining opponents is just 27-33-1, and that includes the 9-1 49ers and the 8-3 Vikings. Other than those two, the four remaining combined records are 10-29-1. So even if the Packers lose to the 49ers and Vikings, they still have a good chance at finishing the season 12-4, which should give them a good shot at winning the division and possibly getting a first-round bye.
So let’s take a look at each of the remaining six games and predict how the Packers will end the 2019 regular season.
