Two Super Bowl contenders, each led by an NFL MVP contender, will face off in “Sunday Night Football” in Week 16 when the Packers face the Titans at the snow-covered Lambeau Field.
Green Bay (11-3) is the betting favorite to exit the NFC and is led by Aaron Rodgers. The veteran quarterback may be 37, but he hasn’t shown any signs of aging this season. He leads the NFL with 40 touchdown passes, just four interceptions, and he has a chance to make his case for the MVP on national television.
Derrick Henry and the Titans (10-4) stand in his way, who may not be favored to overtake the AFC Chiefs but are still very dangerous. Henry leads the NFL in rushing attempts (321) and rushing yards (1,629) and is second with 15 rushing touchdowns. Henry’s physicality allows Tennessee to control possession time and exhaust opposing defenses. It also makes Ryan Tannehill much more dangerous in the game-action passing game.
The Packers have previously won the NFC North title and are looking to gain an edge on the field throughout the playoffs. The Titans haven’t quite secured the AFC South, but thanks to the Colts’ loss to the Steelers on Sunday, Tennessee can take the division with a victory.
