Is this game a Super Bowl preview? Who knows? Both of these teams were marked for dead at points during the season and a lot can still happen in the last 5 games of the season.
While the Packers are still marginal favorites (2.5 – 3.0 points) they have not been getting a lot of credit by national pundits. Watching the CBS pregame, all 4 “experts” predicted a Patriots win. One even predicted they would blow out the Packers, because the Patriots had been “blowing people out” lately. I guess he had not bothered to watch any of the Packers home games this year.
I don’t expect a blow out in this game, but if there was one, I would expect the home team would be the one delivering it. I expect a close game that will go down to the wire. It really is a toss-up type game. With how well the Packers have played at home this season I just can’t pick against them. Prediction: Packers 34-31
Season Record: 10-1
