This evening, the Green Bay Packers face what may be their toughest test of the final month of the 2020 regular season. On Sunday Night Football, the Packers will welcome in the Tennessee Titans for an inter-conference matchup, pitting head coach Matt LaFleur against his previous employer. LaFleur was the Titans’ offensive coordinator before taking the Packers’ job, and he will likely need to dial up a successful game plan on a cold Lambeau Field night in order to get into the win column.
Tennessee has recently edged out the Packers in terms of total points scored this season, as the two teams are running neck-and-neck-and-neck with the Kansas City Chiefs for the league lead in that category. The Titans sit in first place with 436 points, with the Chiefs at 435 and the Packers at 434.
The weather may make things interesting this evening, however. Tonight’s forecast is calling for temperatures in the high 20s and snow through the afternoon, tapering off through the game, and winds between 10 and 20 miles per hour. The Packers struggled offensively in two previous games this year involving chilly, windy conditions — a loss to the Minnesota Vikings and a narrow victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars — so it will be crucial to avoid the same issues that plagued the unit in those games.
A Titans defense that is poor against the pass and that ranks last in the NFL in third-down conversion rate allowed would seem to be ripe for the picking. It will be up to LaFleur and Aaron Rodgers and company to find a way to sustain success offensively and find some explosive plays.
Here’s how to tune in for tonight’s game.
