Packers playing for the bye in NFC playoffs
The Green Bay Packers enter week 15 of the NFL season in a pretty good position. They are currently tied with the New Orleans Saints for the number one spot in the NFC, but the Packers would get the number one seed by virtue of their 37-30 victory over the Saints on September 27. Green Bay has the easiest remaining schedule of the two teams, as Green Bay plays two of their remaining three games against teams with a losing record and the toughest game that they have left (the Tennessee Titans) is at home. New Orleans, on the other hand, has Kansas City and Minnesota left on their schedule, and Drew Brees is still not quite ready to come back from his 11 broken ribs and a punctured lung.
The Packers have won three straight games and five of their last six games, with their only loss in that span coming to Indianapolis in overtime. Rogers has thrown for at least 290 yards in six of his last seven games, including their last two games. He threw for three touchdowns last week, as Green Bay clinched the NFC North division with their seven-point win over the Lions. Davante Adams caught seven passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in the game.
For the season, Rodgers is having his typical MVP-caliber season, completing 69.6% of his passes for 3,685 yards, and a ridiculous ratio of 39 touchdown passes to just four interceptions.
The Panthers can also score quickly and often so look for this one to go way OVER the TOTAL.
