Green Bay has been a disappointment this season but they are still poised to win the NFC North and host a playoff game at Lambeau.
Kick off is set for 4:05 PM ET with the Raiders looking to add to their respectable yet playoffless season.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers are looking like they will win their division and return to the playoffs but this year has definitely not been what was expected, since the beginning
when they lost their top receiver Jordy Nelson.
Without Nelson the offense has been inconsistent all season, even Aaron Rodgers has struggled without his go to guy. Hard to believe but they are 23rd in passing offense.
The defense has been more consistent but it is going to be tougher down the stretch without the services of Nick Perry and Sam Shields, both of whom are likely out for this one.
Those losses will hurt on the road.
The Packers should win this one but there have been a lot of shoulds with this team this season.
The Raiders are showing improvement this season but it will still be a disappointment overall. It looked like they might actually compete for a playoff spot.
A lot of the talk has gone to Derek Carr and the emergence of the offense this season and righfully so because they are leading the way.
However, this team does have one of the best defensive players in the league in Khalil Mack who single handedly won some DFS title last week.
Last week in the road win over Denver Mack had 5 sacks, one of the most dominant defensive performances of the last five seasons. I know Denver has some issues but still this guy is a terror and you can bet the Packers will be keeping track of him.
Oakland looks to follow up that performance with a win at home. As far as I can tell they are not mathematically eliminated just yet so lets see what this group has left in them.
