The Green Bay Packers enter a Week 16 matchup with the Miami Dolphins as underdogs.

Regardless of what happens in their game against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football, the Green Bay Packers know only a win will do when they visit the Miami Dolphins on Christmas Day.

The Packers are playing to keep their season alive in every game. On Sunday afternoon, they must overcome one of the toughest challenges remaining on their schedule.

The Dolphins have lost three games in a row, but all were on the road against tough opponents in the San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Chargers, and Buffalo Bills.

Green Bay needs to be at its best to have a chance of pulling off the upset in Week 16.

Green Bay Packers vs. Miami Dolphins prediction Week 16

Yes, the Dolphins have lost three in a row. This could be a good time to play them. However, each of those defeats came on the road.

It’s unlikely Green Bay will give Miami the same challenge as playing San Francisco or Buffalo on the road.

Matt LaFleur’s team will need to be at its best to compete with the Dolphins, and even that may not be enough.

It’s a must-win game for both teams. Another loss could hurt the Dolphins’ playoff chances, while defeat for the Packers would end their season.

First, Green Bay must get past Los Angeles on Monday night. But if their season doesn’t end after Week 15, it will in a defeat to the Dolphins.
