Week 10 Preview: Carolina Panthers Visit the Packers at Lambeau Field

This is the time of the season most Packer fans get excited about: Green Bay is in the homestretch to the playoffs and Lambeau Field is covered in snow because it’s now cold as fuck in Wisconsin. Home games in November/December (and hopefully January) are a special kind of football. It’s also extra fun when they’re playing a team like the Panthers that are based in the much warmer southern United States.

What could possibly fuck this up? Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on commentary, that’s what. Be sure to check out the radio broadcast of the game[WTMJ (620 AM)] so you can put those clowns on mute.

A Few Things You Should Know

As mentioned already, it’s going to cold but snow is not likely to happen in Green Bay on Sunday except for some flurries. We’ll see.

The Packers will not have another home game until December 8th when the Washington Redskins come to visit.

The Packers are 9-6 overall against Carolina, with wins in six of the last 10 (including playoffs).

QB Aaron Rodgers is 4th in the league for passer rating at home this season with 109.1 – Rodgers is also #1 since 1970 in the league for passer rating at home with 108.3

The Packers are fairly healthy at the moment with, as of right now, only TE Robert Tonyan listed as doubtful and CB Jaire Alexander and S Adrian Amos both listed as questionable.
