Green Bay Packers vs Buffalo Bills: NFL Week 15 NFC vs AFC Contest
Green Bay Packers: Still in a Cat fight for the NFC North title
Unlike last season, when Detroit faded like a setting sun and handed Green Bay the NFC North title, the Lions are maintaining their high level of play and sit one game behind the Packers and the Cats own the first tiebreaker. This is good news as Aaron Rodgers & Crew need to keep winning if they want to earn a first round bye in the playoffs. One thing we know about Green Bay – they can score points seemingly at will. Their defense is another story though after allowing the Falcons 37 points last Monday. That could be a good thing as well since you know the defense did some extra fine tuning during their short week. The Packers are 11-3 S/U in their last 14 games played in December.
Buffalo Bills: Solid year but on track to miss the NFL playoff party for a 15th straight season
After jumping out to a 5-3 season start, Buffalo has faded some as the Bills have dropped three of their last five games. Buffalo (7-6) earned a backdoor cover with a last minute touchdown last Sunday as they lost 24-17 in Denver as ten points pups to the Broncos. Prior to that, the Bills circled the wagons after a 43-23 pummelling by the 2-11 NY Jets as they posted back to back wins over Miami (22-9) and Kansas City (17-13). Buffalo is in tough (basically toast) in the AFC Wild Card race as they need to jump four teams with a 7-6 record, who all own tiebreakers, and the Chargers who are sporting an 8-5 mark. The Buffalo defense, that’s been very good at certain points this season, will need the game of their lives for the Bills to stave off an inevitable trip to the golf course.
Bills vs Packers Prediction: It may be December but the temperature in New York is a balmy 40° F with a light mist coming in off of Lake Erie. That’s bad news for Buffalo as Aaron Rodgers and Co. will operate uninhibited by the weather. Giving the Bills defense and home field advantage some credit, we will wager 1000 units on the Green Bay money line posted at SportsInteraction.
