Green Bay’s season comes down to one game. Riding a five-game winning streak, the Packers face the Detroit Lions on the road in a Week 17 matchup that will decide the NFC North Division winner.
The loser could miss the playoffs entirely.
Both teams can make the playoffs if the game ends in a tie or if Washington loses to the New York Giants.
The Packers beat the Lions 34-27 in Week 3 at Lambeau Field.
Expect a similar result this time around. Aaron Rodgers has continued to prove doubters wrong and is performing at a MVP caliber level. With increase in production from the running game the last few weeks, it makes the Packers offense even harder to stop.
Prediction: Packers 34, Lions 27
