Two Super Bowl contenders, each led by an NFL MVP candidate, will go head to head on “Sunday Night Football” in Week 16 when the Packers face the Titans at snowy Lambeau Field.
Green Bay (11-3) is the betting favorite to make it out of the NFC and is led by Aaron Rodgers. The veteran quarterback may be 37, but he hasn’t showed any signs of aging this season. He leads the NFL with 40 touchdown passes, to just four interceptions, and he has a chance to make his case for MVP on national television.
Standing in his way are Derrick Henry and the Titans (10-4), who may not be favored to get past the Chiefs in the AFC but are still plenty dangerous. Henry leads the NFL in rushing attempts (321) and rushing yards (1,629) and is second with 15 rushing TDs. Henry’s physicality allows Tennessee to control time of possession and wear down opposing defenses. It also makes Ryan Tannehill much more dangerous in the passing game off play-action.
The Packers have already locked up the NFC North title and are looking to secure home-field advantage 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 clinch the division with a victory.
