Green Bay Packers (at Detroit; 70%) - If the Packers beat (or tie) the Lions, they are NFC North champs and in the playoffs. That's assuming, however, that both teams are playing to win.
The winning team on Sunday clinches the NFC North championship and a home playoff game. Despite the losses, the Lions still control their own fate, and the victor of their final game in the season will be headed to the playoffs.
The Lions offense has struggled in recent weeks, averaging just 15.6 points per game while posting three straight against-the-spread losses, but they have won six in a row straight-up on home turf. dMeanwhile, the Packers have tallied five consecutive outright victories but are winless against the spread in four games this season as road chalk. Rodgers threw four touchdown passes, two to Nelson, in the Packers' 34-27 win over the Lions at Lambeau Field earlier this season.
Wide receiver Jordy Nelson continues to lead the team with 91 receptions for almost 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns, though Rodgers has proven that he can get the job done with a slew of targets. If the Seahawks tie their game (they already have a tie this season), they need the Falcons to lose and the Packers and Lions to finish their game in a tie. Now they have the chance to finish doing that against the Lions at Ford Field on Sunday night.
"I think it was a reflection of how we felt and how close we felt we were to winning games as opposed to losing those games", McCarthy told Detroit reporters.
Elliott's second TD of the night put the Cowboys up for good and Dez plunged the dagger into the Lions by taking a flip from Prescott on the reverse and lofting a left-hand throw to a wide-open Witten for a 10-yard score. Even if both of those things don't happen, the Lions will have an incentive to win on Sunday night, as opposed to backing into the playoffs along with a division rival via a tie. Against the Vikings, they had four: two by Perry, one by Mike Daniels and one game-changing one by Matthews that resulted in a Sam Bradford fumble that Daniels recovered.
It was no surprise to Packers' receiver Jordy Nelson that Rodgers spoke out the way he did, or that he backed up his words.

According to running back Rashad Jennings, that's the plan.
