Can the Green Bay Packers keep themselves in the wild-card race over their next four games?

The next four games will be crucial to the Green Bay Packers‘ season. Win three or more, and they will set themselves up for a wild-card push.

Lose two or more, and it could be season over.

Green Bay hosts the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football, then gets an important mini-bye before another primetime showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Following that is a matchup with the Chicago Bears, then a much-needed bye, before hosting the Los Angeles Rams.

How many wins will the Packers get between now and the end of Week 15?

Week 11: Packers vs. Titans (Thursday Night Football)

This is one Green Bay has to win. Even after last week’s impressive overtime victory over the Dallas Cowboys, the Packers still find themselves in trouble. The only way out of this mess is to keep winning, especially at home.

Can Green Bay take advantage of the NFL’s No. 31-ranked pass defense?

Despite giving up a lot of yards through the air, the Titans have an excellent pass rush, with 29 sacks this season, fourth-most in the NFL. This is a tough matchup for the offensive line.

If Christian Watson can build on his breakout performance last week, he could create some issues for the Titans’ secondary.

Both teams have struggled to consistently score points this season, so it could be a challenging defensive battle. The Packers need to stop the run to have a chance.

It could be another overtime thriller.

Prediction: Win (5-6)
