The Green Bay Packers opened up the week as 14 point underdogs against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Following a 23-0 shutout at home to the lowly (5-5) Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay has a lot of fine tuning needed.
The Steelers are (8-2) on the season and one of the forces of the AFC. The game will be featured in Sunday Night Football at 7:30 PM on NBC. Heinz Field will be rocking as Pittsburgh plays to better their home field advantage opportunities in the playoffs. Green Bay needs the win to stay alive in playoff talks.
Green Bay will be plenty familiar with the AFC having just played the Ravens and traveling to Cleveland in two weeks. Green Bay is (19-15) overall against the Steelers, including a (31-25) victory in Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, Texas.
These two teams always seem to play close games as four of the last five regular-season games have been decided by seven points or less. One thing is for certain, a win for Brett Hundley and crew in Pittsburgh would be a huge upset.
