Green Bay at Detroit (+3.5), o/u 44.5 – Sunday, 1 p.m. EST
The Packers have nothing to play for here other than keeping people healthy. They've locked up the top seed in the NFC, and a first-round bye, so there could be some "too long a layoff" calculations at play for Matt LaFleur, but for the most part the goal will be to get Aaron Rodgers to the playoffs in one piece. The patchwork offensive line they could trot out should also provide extra incentive to get Jordan Love into the game as soon as possible. The Lions could still slip into the No. 1 pick in next year's draft if the Jaguars win, but No. 2 should do well enough for a roster that has a lot of holes to plug. Jared Goff might suit up for this one after missing the last two games, but then again he might not. A 17:8 TD:INT through 13 games isn't terrible, but his 6.5 YPA ranks 27th out of 32 QB qualifiers this season, behind such luminaries as Davis Mills and Daniel Jones. That's not the kind of company you want to keep if you want to make sure you have a starting job in 2022, and while you can make excuses for Goff's lack of dependable receiving options this year, Amon-Ra St. Brown's late-season surge hasn't been affected at all by having Tim Boyle under center.
