The Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans lead their respective divisions and are set to face off in a Week 16 matchup at Lambeau Field on Sunday to wrap up this weekend’s action. This matchup could be a barn burner, as both sides are among the league leaders in points per game.
Tennessee is averaging a league-high 31.1 points per game and has been powered by the powerful running of Derrick Henry. The powerful back, A.J. Brown, and Jonnu Smith have helped Ryan Tannehill command one of the NFL’s most efficient red-zone offenses,. Green Bay is perfectly capable of keeping up though.
Green Bay’s tandem of Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams has helped power the Packers put up 31 points per game this season. Rodgers has an unrivaled connection with his WR1 and versatile backs like Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams make it tough for opponents to key in on any one player.
Date: Sunday, Dec. 27
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET

Fantasy football start/sit advice
Derrick Henry, RB, $9,600
Henry has eclipsed 100 rushing yards in five of his last six games and should shine against a defense that’s been gashed by running backs all year. The NFL’s leading rusher will almost certainly get 20 or more carries for the 11th time this season.
A.J. Brown, WR, $7,600
Brown has found the end zone 10 times in 12 games despite being limited by tons of minor injuries. He doesn't need nearly as many receptions or receiving yards as other elite wideout options. He and Corey Davis will be a handful for the Packers.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, $7,800
Rodgers only trails Patrick Mahomes in the MVP odds for a reason. He has a season-high 40 passing touchdowns has one of the best receivers in the league at his disposal. Rodgers has thrown for multiple scores in eight of his last 10 games and the Titans’ bottom-five pass defense could yield big numbers to him.
Davante Adams, WR, $9,100
Adams’ nine-game touchdown streak was snapped in Week 15 but this is the perfect game for him to get back on track. The Titans have given up the fourth-most passing yards and the third-most passing touchdowns in the NFL. Matchups don't get much better for Adams.
