Week 15 NFL Picks: APC narrowly picks Packers over Panthers

New, comments

In a tight 7-6 decision, APC’s official pick shows faith in the Packers to keep their playoff hopes alive.

It’s going to be quite a Sunday in Charlotte.

The Green Bay Packers are in town with Aaron Rodgers cleared to play, and they’ll be bringing their best as they try to keep their playoff hopes going against the Carolina Panthers. Carolina’s defense is a tough matchup for Rodgers in his first start following his return, however, as they rank in the top ten in the NFL in most statistical categories and feature a fearsome pass rush.

As you might expect, we at APC are pretty tightly split on whether we feel the return of Rodgers will be enough to overcome this difficult challenge. As you’ll see below, six of our 13 writers making picks this week have the Panthers coming out on top. However, that means that a majority still picked the Packers, so we will wait and see which group of us end up being correct.

Here are our picks for week 15, and please forgive those of us who picked Carolina.
