The Packers posted a gritty win over the Chicago Bears in Week 1. The Vikings shut down the Atlanta Falcons. Green Bay Packers vs. If the Green Bay Packers want to take home another victory in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings they must do these three things.
After all, this will be a battle for first place in the NFC North at least for the time being , with the Bears currently topping the division at and the Vikings following close behind at Minnesota has a bye this weekend while the Bears host the Lions, meaning a Chicago loss will drop them below the Vikings in the standings and a win would give them more of a cushion in first place.
The Jaguars have sleepwalked their way to a record and are looking up in the AFC South standings at the Texans. They have a Week 10 Thursday night primetime game against the Panthers three days from today, and have another Sunday Night Football game that also seems likely to be flexed out scheduled in Week 14 against the Raiders.
So, what other SNF games after Week 11 could be flexed?
That week also features Patriots-Dolphins, Eagles-Cowboys, and Rams-Bears, so there is no shortage of worthy replacements. On paper, that game clearly looks like the Panthers-Saints matchup in New Orleans, which could decide the NFC South and playoff seeding in the conference.
