NFL Week 12 – Packers vs Eagles Predictions

The reign of Aaron Rodgers could be done with the Green Bay Packers scuffling to a 4-7 record heading into their Week 12 Sunday Night Football showdown with the NFL best Philadelphia Eagles. A mainstay in the NFC playoffs under their three-time MVP quarterback, the Packers have all but been eliminated following their loss to Tennessee, their sixth in the last seven games. This is unchartered territory for Rodgers and the Pack, who usually find themselves battling for playoff positioning at this time of year. Instead the questions of whether or not Rodgers is done will be the main talking points.

The Week 12 Sunday Night Football contest between the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles will take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia at 8:20 p.m. ET on November 27, 2022 and will be televised on NBC.

Packers vs Eagles Odds (Week 12)

Green Bay Packers +6.5 ( +245 )

Philadelphia Eagles -6.5 ( -300 )

Over/Under 46

Odds Analysis

Winning their first eight games and going 5-3 ATS, the Eagles struggled the last two weeks. They suffered their first loss of the season in Week 10 to Washington and needed a rally to beat Indianapolis, 17-16, last week. They are 0-3 ATS over their last three outings. Though the Eagles haven’t been as sharp lately they’ve been better than the Packers. I guess that’s why the line was bet up a half point after hitting the board at Philly -6. Never underestimate Green Bay, though. Sure it’s been a horrid last two months, but the Packers are 10-5 SU and 12-3 in their last 15 games when catching points. They have payouts in all three games as a dog this season beating Tampa Bay and Dallas outright.

Green Bay Packers

The once dominant offense led by Rodgers has been a no-show over the last seven games. They scored more than 22 points once during the 1-6 slide with that coming in a 31-28 overtime win over Dallas in Week 10. They amassed 415 yards in that game with Rodgers throwing three TD passes and Aaron Jones running for 138 yards and a score. That’s the outlier, though, with the Pack totaling fewer than 300 yards in half of their previous six games. Most of the blame will be tossed at Rodgers, which is always the case with the quarterback. And he is having an off year by his standards completing 64.6 percent of his passes with 19 TDs and seven interceptions.

There hasn’t been much continuity at the receiver spot with Alan Lazard and Randall Cobb missing games. Apparently the club whiffed on an attempt to acquire Chase Claypool at the deadline and no significant upgrades have been made. Green Bay is averaging just 222.3 yards through the air, 19th in the NFL, and scoring has dipped to 18.4 points per game putting them at 26th. They’ve been average defensively, which hasn’t been good enough to prop up an underachieving offense. After getting payouts in two of their first three games, the Packers are 2-6 ATS over their last eight.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are the feel good story of the NFL winning their first eight and being the last team to suffer a defeat. You could say the loss to Washington two weeks ago was a good thing. And it would be if the team learned from it. But losing as badly as they did to a team that was below .500 coming in has some worried. The Eagles followed that with a poor three quarters against Indy trailing 13-3 entering the fourth. Jalen Hurts saved the day with a scoring pass and run, the latter with 80 seconds left on the clock for the win. They are 0-3 ATS in their last three and cashing the UNDER in Indy ended a run of five straight OVERS.

Touted as a possible MVP during the torrid start, Hurts’ candidacy has taken a drastic turn. The team is winning but Hurts is struggling in the passing game. He threw for fewer than 200 yards in each of the last two games, and while that wouldn’t be notable if the Eagles had a lead and were working the clock they trailed for most of the time. The club also addressed a need on the defensive line adding Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh. They helped hold the Colts to less than 4.0 yards per carry and will disrupt Green Bay’s featured ground game.

Packers vs Eagles Prediction

The Packers aren’t completely out of the playoff picture but they can’t afford another loss. Philly was the low-seed in last year’s expanded field with a 9-8 record, so there’s hope. Rodgers and the offense have to be better and the Pack has the ability to run the ball with Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon. They’ve been good as road dogs the last few years and I expect a close game giving the edge to Green Bay and the points.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers +6.5 and UNDER 46
