In week nine, the Green Bay Packers played on Thursday Night Football, earning a win over the San Francisco 49ers and getting a few days off through the weekend before they play the Jacksonville Jaguars in week ten. However, their week 11 opponents, the Indianapolis Colts, will take the field on TNF this evening, giving them the extra rest before they host Green Bay a week from Sunday.
With a nationally-televised game on this evening, Packers fans will get a chance to take a look at these Colts, as well as another AFC South team that shows up on Green Bay’s schedule late in the season: the Tennessee Titans.
While the Packers will be scouting Indianapolis, this is a fascinating three-week stretch for both of these teams. They play again in just two weeks, as the Colts host Tennessee on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. That puts the Packers game smack in the middle of two games against the division-leading Titans, who also have a very challenging contest in week 11 as they travel to play the Baltimore Ravens. Coming into tonight, the Colts trail the Titans by a game in the division, but they can erase that lead and earn the first half of a head-to-head tiebreaker with a win this evening.
Join us here as we follow along with what should be an exciting battle for the top spot in the AFC South.
