GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers are touchdown underdogs for Sunday’s game at the Philadelphia Eagles, a game that will air nationally on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
The Eagles are 9-1 and own the top spot in the NFC playoff chase. The Packers are 4-7 and much closer to the fifth pick of the draft than the playoffs. For a team that enters every season with championship aspirations, the Packers might have run out of losses with six games left in the season.
“I think you’ve always got to be honest about where you’re at just to help guide you,” coach Matt LaFleur said on Friday. “But, yeah, we are in a really tough spot. The message that I articulated to our team is every game, it’s a one-game season from here on out. Every game is absolutely critical, and they all are but just in particular where we are today, there is no margin for error.”
Here’s this week’s viewing information along with betting information, history and more.
