The Green Bay Packers enter a must-win situation today when they square off against the Miami Dolphins. The Packers sit third in the NFC North and are two wins behind the Chicago Bears for first place.
The Packers are 3-0-1 at Lambeau Field this season. The home-field advantage will aid the Packers against a talented Dolphins squad, especially with Brock Osweiler starting at quarterback.
Green Bay’s defense will have to force a couple of turnovers and slow down the Dolphins’ running game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers also has to exploit an average Dolphins’ defense, while running back Aaron Jones needs to have success on the ground.
This will be a competitive and low-scoring game with the Packers remaining unbeaten at home.
Prediction: Packers 24, Dolphins 17
