NFL Preview

Can Aaron Rodgers lead the Green Bay Packers to Christmas weekend win?

After a mixed offseason, Aaron Rodgers has managed to silence his doubters with some eye-catching displays over the last 15-odd weeks. The two-time NFL MVP award winner has already thrown for 3,800+ yards with 40 passing touchdowns against just 4 interceptions this season. The Packers are on an 11-3 record heading into Week 16.

They will need the likes of Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling to come through on the weekend. TE Robert Tonyan will also be crucial to the Packers’ chances in Week 16. Coach Matt LaFleur will back his defensive stars Darnell Savage Jr, Rashan Gary and Jaire Alexander to put in a strong showing against the deadly Derrick Henry.

Ryan Tannehill-led Tennessee Titans pushing for AFC South title

After a strong start to their season, the Tennessee Titans are in the mix to challenge for the AFC South title. Both the Titans and the Colts are 10-4 heading into Week 16 and will be battling it out for divisional bragging rights. A major reason for their dominance is some brilliant individual displays. On 321 attempts, Henry has 1,679 rushing yards to his name with 15 rushing touchdowns.

He is in line to cross the historic 2,000 yards mark and can do so in the coming weeks. The game against the Packers in Week 16 will be a perfect opportunity for the Titans to establish themselves as realistic Super Bowl contenders. Can they make the most of the opportunity coming their way?
