Tennessee Titans (7-3) at Green Bay Packers (4-7), Thursday, 8:15 p.m.:
Four days after rallying to overcome the Dallas Cowboys, the Green Bay Packers (4-7) failed to recapture the magic in a lifeless 27-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans at Lambeau Field on Thursday night.
Green Bay’s sixth loss in seven games effectively destroys any realistic hope of Matt LaFleur’s squad making the playoffs in 2022.
Chicago Bears (3-7) at Atlanta Falcons (4-6), 1 p.m.:
This is an interesting one. The Bears are entertaining to watch, but they aren’t winning games. The Falcons have a couple wins and are trying some interesting things with their ground game.
The distinction here is that Atlanta has a superior run defense, allowing 4.42 yards per carry on average, which sits just outside the top 10 in the league. That could be the key for the Falcons, who are still hoping to catch the NFC South division leaders.
