The Packers are now the 2019 NFC North champions after beating the Minnesota Vikings on the road for Monday Night Football. Now, their goal is to clinch the home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Detroit Lions have lost eight in a row, and are now in contention for a very high pick in the 2020 draft. A win on Sunday against Green Bay would be an upset of epic proportions, and one that would actually be bad for both teams in the big picture.

Green Bay is currently priced as 13-point road favorites in Week 17. If the Pack beats the Lions, they can secure the conference’s No.1 seed IF the 49rs lose to the Seahawks in what will be the final game of the regular season on Sunday night.

Green Bay Packers

Green Bay is now on a four-game winning streak with that win in Minnesota, and a victory in Detroit will give them a perfect record this year against their division rivals. The fact that they pulled off a win, and by 13 points, is remarkable considering the game they had. Green Bay turned the ball over three times but still came away with a win thanks to an unbelievable defensive performance and another lights out game from Aaron Jones.

The defense allowed the Vikes just 139 total yards, 7 first downs, and just 10 points in what would be Kirk Cousins ninth straight Monday Night Football loss.

The last time the Packers made a postseason appearance was in 2016. The last time they earned a bye was in 2014. Matt LaFleur is the 10th rookie coach in league history to get 12 wins, and he helped the Pack win for the first time in four tries in the Vikings’ new stadium.

Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions are a busted-up bunch, as shown again in last week’s loss to the Denver Broncos. That loss marked their eighth in a row, and their 11th in 12 games.

In that 27-17 loss to Denver, they lost another player to injury. This time it was rookie linebacker Jahlani Tavai, who went out with a shoulder injury, and was placed on an injured reserve list that now features 15 Lions players.

If they lose to the Packers on Sunday, it’ll be the worst Lions season record since their 2-14 2009 record. That was the year after their abysmal winless 2008.
