Game Day – Week 16: Tennessee Titans at Green Bay Packers

First of all, if you have not yet, be sure to read Rob’s writeup on this Packers vs Titans matchup.

It goes without saying that there is a lot at stake in this game for each team. The Packers would like to hang onto their #1 NFC seed position they held going into this week and the Titans are in a close battle with the Indianapolis Colts to claim the top spot in the AFC South. Each team is among the top offenses in the league.

Adding to the excitement of the game, you can expect to see some snow tonight in Lambeau. It’s likely to come down to which team can stop the other’s running game while avoiding costly turnovers.

A Few Things to Know(Read the complete Packers.com Dope Sheet here):

  • TE Robert Tonyan has posted six receiving TDs in primetime contests this season, No. 1 in the NFL. Dating back to 2000, his six receiving TDs are the most by a Packer player in prime-time contests since WR Davante Adams posted seven receiving TDs in six prime-time games in 2016

    Ah yes. This game is satisfying in so many ways. The wasted picks Rashan Gary and AJ Dillon have provided juice tonight. The bust Darnell Savage has been great. It’s almost like the Packers fan base is made up of miserable fucks that have nothing better to do than complain

      I couldn’t agree more…PREACH!!
      .
      A 1st round pick, and 2 second round picks….contributing.
      .
      It’s almost unheard of. Great observation my man!!
      .
      Now….all we have to do is decide who’s going to Green Bay and teach #28 how to do a Lambeau leap.
      While you’re there…slap Rodgers upside the head…hard. What’s with all these interceptions?
      I’m getting tired of this has been old fuck.
      .
      Should we (cough) bench him?

    Hats off to the defense doing what they had to do to limit Henry and the # 1 scoring offense in a game that should have been very favorable for a power running team in the snow. GB looked like the power running team tonight with dillion and jones.

    This offense is very balanced. It will be fun in playoffs with jones, williams and dillion oh and #12 and #17!

    Somewhere Gute is smiling, because in a wide open NFL this year, the pack have as good of a chance as anyone. This is a team. They have their issues, but every team does. This isn’t an Aaron Rodgers team. This is a football team. If you think this isn’t a good team and they are only here because of Rodgers, please see Watson, Deshaun and the Texans of Houston

      Preach….
      .
      Even if we didn’t have Aaron, we’d probably still be 12-3. If he keeps throwing interceptions, they can trade his old has been ass to some AFC team. I’ve about had it. Just to send a message, maybe bench him next Sunday?
      .
      In unrelated news….it seems Rodgers may have wrapped up MVP tonight, after Mahomes tripped up a bit.

    Wow, was I wrong. The defense came to play. Gary and Alexander had huge games. Plus, the offense didn’t try to press the ball down field in the third quarter, killing a few drives.

    I never doubted that the Pack would have a chance to beat the Titans. However, even if the defense stacked the box to stop Henry; did I think they would have kept him under 100 yards because of our tackling issues. This was by far, their best defensive performance of the year. (A good total team win). Guess I’ll have to sit down and eat some crow!

      It seemed to me that Pettine switched priorities.
      .
      Stop the run first, at all cost. He played it right.
      .
      The Titans looked like a fish out of water in the cold and snow. They still had 156 yards on the ground in the snow. It’s fairly obvious they would have more than that on a dry track. Then to top it off, the Packers offense was almost flawless.
      They gained 234 yards on the ground (how often does that happen) and Rodgers threw 4 TD passes.
      .
      Snow or not, the Packers played great. But we shouldn’t pretend the snow had nothing to do with it.
