Can the Packers run the table?
With four weeks to go in the regular season, how many games will the Green Bay Packers win?
Unlike this time last year, the Packers don’t have too many worries about being caught by the other three teams in the NFC North. They are close to wrapping up the division title for the second straight season.
Improving the playoff seeding is very much in play over the next four weeks. At 9-3, the Packers currently hold the number two seed but are only a game behind the New Orleans Saints, who they have a tiebreaker over.
What record will Green Bay finish the season on? Here, I predict the final four.
Week 14: at Detroit Lions
Maybe a fresh start at head coach is just what the Detroit Lions needed. They defeated the Chicago Bears on Sunday to keep their slim wild-card chances alive.
Not only could the Lions have a boost from the head coach change but they’ve also given this Packers team some problems in recent years, especially at Ford Field.
It’ll be a tough game and the Packers might start slow, but in the end, they’ll have too much talent. Detroit has the fifth-worst defensive record in the NFL and that won’t be good enough against a red-hot Aaron Rodgers.
Prediction: Green Bay 27, Detroit 20 (10-3)
