The NFC remains wide open with five teams having two or three losses. Two of them will meet Sunday afternoon when the Green Bay Packers host the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field.

Although the Rams are coming off a bye, these two teams are a combined 1-4 this month. A win against another NFC heavyweight would not only make a statement but also help turn around their season as they pursue the conference's lone bye. The Rams' bye could hardly have come at a better time, as they are reeling from losses against the Titans and 49ers by a combined score of 59-26. Concerningly, they put up their two lowest offensive outputs by both yardage (347, 278) and points (16, 10). Green Bay, on the other hand, narrowly fell to the Chiefs when Aaron Rodgers was sidelined with a positive COVID-19 test and won when he returned against the Seahawks with a dominant defensive performance. However, that same unit couldn't stop the Vikings last week in a disappointing 34-31 overtime loss. These teams are even with a 47-47-2 all-time record against each other, but the Packers have won six of their last seven games against the Rams, including a 32-18 home playoff win in the Divisional Round in January. Can Los Angeles avenge their recent losses with an extra week to prepare? Rams 28-24 Packers.
