The Green Bay Packers will face off against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, and although the Packers have already secured their NFC North divisional crown, they will be looking to win out their season in an attempt to claim a playoff bye. For that to happen, not only must the Packers win out, but they must also hope for the San Francisco 49ers to give up something. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link provided below.
The Packers have successfully stormed back in the second half of the season to take the division. They are coming into this game with a record of 10-4, and their second half of the season resurgence has coincided with a slump for the once high-flying Chicago Bears. That has allowed the Packers to take complete control of the division and they will now be looking to push on and make an easier pathway through the playoffs.
Today they come up against the struggling Titans, who at 5-9 became irrelevant to the playoffs a long time ago. However, the Titans are coming into this game fresh off the back of a prime-time win against the New York Jets and they will be looking to see out the season and show enough that many of their players, as well as coach Mike Munchak deserve another shot at making things happen next season.
The Packers will not want to take their foot off the gas now, and will want to hit the postseason with all guns blasting. Following their disappointing 10-38 loss to the New York Giants at the end of November they have bounced back fantastically, winning three straight games; beating Minnesota 23-14 and Detroit 27-20, before claiming the all-important 21-13 win against the Chicago Bears last week that clinched them the divisional title and completed their turnaround in the NFC North division.
The Packers as always rely heavily on Aaron Rodgers, and he will be a central figure from here on out to see whether the Packers can make a realistic push for the Super Bowl.
