The Green Bay Packers (4-6) play the Tennessee Titans (6-3) on Thursday, 17 at 20:15 at Lambeau Field. A tally of four wins from ten games leaves the Green Bay Packers with a divisional ranking of second in the NFC North, while the Tennessee Titans are first in the AFC South after collecting six victories out of a possible nine. Green Bay Packers claimed a 40-14 win when last faced with the Tennessee Titans, and they look a solid call to take out their coming visitors at the Lambeau Field once again.
Form Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers defied their underdog status to bag a 31-28 win over the Dallas Cowboys in their last match, leaving them 4-6 for the last 10 matches and 3-2 in the last 5 at home.
Things haven’t improved on the offense front for the Green Bay Packers at all, having put just 17.6 points on board across the last five matches. In all, the offense has averaged 18.5 points for the season. Surrendering 21.6 points per game, on the other hand, leaves the Green Bay Packers’ defense around the middle of the pack compared to the rest of the league’s defensive units.
Making the playoffs should be the bare minimum expected of this team.
