The Packers and Lions are set to decide the NFC North title and, in turn, the playoff picture in Sunday Night Football. It’s the game of the week to spot in week 17 NFL picks.

Point Spread Value

The Packers are riding a five-game winning streak into week 17, improving to 9-6-0 SU and 8-6-1 ATS with a 2.5 winning margin and -0.5 differential versus the spread. By the stats, they’ve not had the sort of season many expected they would. Enough can’t be said though about the way they are competing down the stretch. Mainly closing the gap on the Lions in the table. Now it’s all on the line. The Packers beat the Lions 34-27 at Lambeau in week 3 coming through as the -6 home favorites. As the road chalk in the reprisal of their divisional rivalry in 2016, the Packers do strike a convincing pose.

 The Survivor

The Lions had their chance to clinch the NFC North but a tough spot in the NFL schedule proved their undoing. This is their last shot and with home advantage, they’ll be eager to regroup. The problem is Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have long been a thorn in their side. The Hail Mary at Ford Field last season continues to make the highlight reel.

 Game Total

The Packers offense found it’s groove at the expense of the Vikings in week 16, something that should send them into week 17 on a wave of optimism. Ford Field has seen many ding dongs between this pair and if it lives up to the billing we should have a right cracker to officially seal the 2016 regular season.
