The 12th weekend of regular season NFL action will conclude on Sunday night with a compelling NFC showdown between the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles. Coverage begins from Lincoln Financial Field in South Philly at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
GREEN BAY PACKERS vs. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES BETTING PREDICTION
Of all the poor campaigns posted by routinely high-ranking teams so far this season, Green Bay’s opening skid might be the most disappointing of them all, as the Packers followed up last year’s impressive 13-4 run with a frustrating 4-7 stretch through the first 11 weeks of this season, while on the offensive side of the ball, ranking just 26th in the league in scoring and 15th in total yardage on the year (18.4 PPG, 345 YPG).
However, a glimmer of hope briefly arose a few weeks ago, as Aaron Rodgers and co. erupted for a season-high 31 points on 415 total yards in a thrilling win over the Cowboys in Week 10, which appeared to course-correct a ship that was quickly headed south. But unfortunately, their success was very short lived, as the Packers scored just 17 points on 271 total yards in an ugly double-digit loss to Tennessee in their most recent affair.
On the flip side, the Eagles were arguably the best team in football through the first half of the season, as the Jalen Hurts and co. racked up 28+ PPG across a perfect 8-0 start to the year. But there was always some doubt regarding the merit of their opening run due to an underwhelming strength of schedule, highlighted by Philly’s opponents posting a combined record of 22-36-1 in Weeks 1 through 9.
However, the Birds haven’t looked all that great the last couple weeks, as the Eagles scored just 19 PPG and allowed 24 PPG across an ugly 1-1 split against the Commanders and Colts in their latest two affairs. Which is a pair of teams roughly the same caliber as Green Bay, if not slightly less dangerous than this desperate Packers squad at the moment.
I’ll take the over here, as the Packers probably won’t be able to keep up in a road matchup against an Eagles offense that’s scored 24+ PTS in seven-of-ten contests this season. But I still expect to see Rodgers break off some big chunks through the play-action game and post a relatively competitive effort against a Philly defense that currently ranks 24th in the league in yards allowed per rush attempt.
Score Prediction: Eagles 27, Packers 23
Best Bet: Over 46.5 (-110)

GREEN BAY PACKERS BETTING ANALYSIS
Green Bay won the NFC North with a record of 13-4 last season, which narrowly edged Tampa Bay for the top seed in the conference. However, Rodgers’ second straight MVP campaign came to an abrupt halt in the Divisional Round, as the Packers went in cold following a first-round bye and fell to the Niners in a snowy slugfest at Lambeau Field.
The Packers traded away All-Pro wideout Davante Adams this past offseason, which has depleted their receiving core to the ranks of Allen Lazard, Christian Watson, and Randall Cobb. However, nobody thought the departure of Adams would derail the operation quite like this, as Green Bay quickly went from ranking Top 10 in the league in scoring last season, to ranking Bottom 10 in scoring through the first 11 weeks of this season.
However, their performance on defense has been nearly just as concerning, as on the other side of the ball, the Packers have now allowed 23+ PTS in seven of their last eight games, which includes five contests in which they surrendered 27+ PTS. So, this high-powered Eagles offense should have no problem moving the ball in Sunday night’s contest.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES BETTING ANALYSIS
Philly’s defense was relatively pedestrian in DC Jonathan Gannon’s first campaign with the team, as the Eagles’ defense ranked 19th in scoring 10th in total yardage last season (23.1 PPG, 330 YPG), which was good enough to keep them afloat most of the time, but not enough compete with the top squads in the NFC like the Rams and Packers.
However, the Birds have played excellent on both sides of the script so far this year, highlighted by the Eagles’ defense allowing just 18.3 PPG and forcing a league-high 21 turnovers across an impressive 9-1 start to the season.
Which is exactly the type of dominance capable of elevating this squad to title contention if they continue generating 26+ PPG on the offensive side of the ball. But we’ll just have to wait and see if they can return to that level of production after scoring 21 PTS or less in back-to-back matchups against Washington and Indy in their latest two affairs.
