Game Preview and Betting Angles
This is a battle between two Super Bowl contenders. The Packers are 6-1 at Lambeau Field, but the Titans have been very comfortable on the road this season. They have won five of their six road games this season, securing major wins in Indianapolis and Baltimore. Let’s take a deeper look at both squads as they prepare for this massive game.
The Packers are an offensive machine, but that isn’t a surprise to anyone. They are third in the NFL in scoring and MVP-candidate Aaron Rodgers is the biggest reason for their high-powered offense. Rodgers leads the league with 40 touchdowns and he’s also sporting an NFL-low 0.8 interception percentage.
Although Rodgers might be the engine for this offense, he is surrounded by a ton of playmakers. Davante Adams might be the best receiver in football, Aaron Jones is red hot the last few weeks, and Robert Tonyan is a touchdown machine. Green Bay’s balanced offense can beat you in a bunch of different ways.
Defensively, the Packers are led by a strong pass rush. Za’Darius Smith leads Green Bay with 11.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Trying to shut him down is going to be at the top of the Tennessee gameplan.
On the bright side for Packers backers, they are solid against the run. They are allowing just 110.1 rushing yards per game, which ranks 11th in the NFL. Of course, they have not faced anyone quite like Derrick Henry this year.
Derrick Henry is once again proving to the world that he is the best running back in football. After rushing for 147 yards and a touchdown last week, Henry is up to a league-leading 1,679 rushing yards on the season. With two games left to play, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he will hit 2,000 yards this year.
The Tennessee offense starts and ends with the All-Pro running back, but don’t sleep on Ryan Tannehill. The veteran passer is taking advantage of the attention that Henry receives from opposing defenses. He’s up to 31 touchdowns against just five interceptions in 2020.
Tannehill’s ability to take care of the ball is a big reason why the Titans rank first in the NFL in turnover differential (+12). They simply don’t give the ball away.
The Titans’ pass defense will be tested by Rodgers and Adams on Sunday. Tennessee ranks 29th in the NFL in pass defense this year. Rodgers and the Packers have to be licking their chops at the prospect of ripping up this secondary. A lot of points from Rodgers plus a big game for Henry could be good news for over bettors.
How To Watch Packers – Titans

Prediction: Go Pack Go & Over
Aaron Rodgers shows up to play when the lights are brightest. Sunday Night Football against a bad secondary means that the Packers are going to be able to score a lot of points. Take the Packers laying the points and the over. The Titans will hang around and Derrick Henry will put up a ton of yards, but they won’t have enough firepower to keep pace with Rodgers.
