By Nate LoCascio The (3-4-1) Green Bay Packers host the (5-4) Miami Dolphins Sunday at 3:25 PM from Lambeau Field. It will mark Green Bay’s first home game in nearly four weeks. It is the Packers’ lone game at Lambeau Field over a 47-day span (Oct. 16-Dec. 1). The Packers have won three of the last four matchups with the Dolphins, including the last time they played (27-24 at Miami in 2014). In the 2014 contest, QB Aaron Rodgers threw for 264 yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions and a passer rating of 99.7. Trailing by four points with just over two minutes to play, Rodgers led the Packers on an 11-play, 60-yard drive and connected with TE Andrew Quarless for a 4-yard game-winning TD with three seconds remaining.
It will be the latest date that Miami has played in Green Bay since Dec. 8, 1985. Seven of the last 10 matchups between the Packers and Dolphins have been decided by single digits. Green Bay has scored 20-plus points against Miami in each of the last six games. Sunday will be the second of three games the Packers will play in a 12-day span, as they will be back on the road traveling back out west to take on the Seattle Seahawks on a Thursday night. It is the Packers’ second Thursday night game at Seattle (Week 1 in 2014).
