The Packers host the Titans on Sunday Night Football.
Just like that, Christmas is over for another year and we’ve arrived at the Green Bay Packers‘ final home game of the regular season.
It’s important to note I said regular season, as the Packers have the luxury of knowing they’ve already secured at least one home game in the playoffs. The question now is whether that game will be played in the wild-card round or whether the Packers will earn a first-round bye to the divisional round.
We’ll learn a lot more in today’s games, including Green Bay hosting the Tennessee Titans on Sunday Night Football.
This game was circled for a number of reasons early in the year.
First there is the obvious. Matt LaFleur taking on his former team where he was offensive coordinator in 2018. More importantly, this was always going to be a major test for the run defense up against one of the league’s best rushing attacks.
Green Bay’s “recent” record against Tennessee is, well, not good. I say “recent” because to look back at the past five meetings between these two teams, we have to go all the way back to 2001. So, of course, we can’t look into any of the previous matchups as so much changes in the four-year gap between them.
Even so, it’s still something the Packers will aim to put right later today with a win.
Before this game kicks off, all eyes will be on the Los Angeles Rams’ showdown with the Seattle Seahawks. If the Rams win, the Packers will enter their game tonight knowing that a win will be enough for the NFC’s top seed.
Do you think the Packers will get the win over the Titans?
