It has been a wild season for the Green Bay Packers. They have their regular 13 wins with another game to play, home playoff advantage and the only first-round break in the NFC playoff group. Aaron Rodgers has put together a season of MVP caliber, and the task now falls to Matt LaFleur to ensure that the playoffs through Lambeau pay off for the Packers, who have not reached the Super Bowl since 2011.
On Sunday, they face the Detroit Lions, who are ready for the season to end and they can move on. The Lions, 2-13-1 on the season, have shown a lot of struggle with first-time head coach Dan Campbell, but the talent on the roster just hasn’t been there. Amon-Ra St. Brown has become a strong receiver for the Lions, but clearly there are a lot of holes on this list that need to be filled.
The Packers have indicated that they will play their starters in Week 18 as they look to carry momentum to the playoffs. Davante Adams is coming off a great week against the Vikings, catching 11 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown. The Vikings were simply outscored by the Packers on “Sunday Night Football,” and Green Bay easily picked up a 37-10 win to clinch the NFC regular season title.
They will need all the support they can get in an in-depth conference. The Rams, Buccaneers and Cowboys have been formidable all year, and the Cardinals also had the best start in the league. The Packers have lost in the NFC Championship Game in each of the past two years, so the obvious goal is to avoid losing in the postseason for the third year in a row after an outstanding regular season.
