Green Bay Packers VS. Washington Redskins

They are currently top of the NFC North Division in the National Football Conference with a 9-3 record (9 wins, 3 losses) and a .750 win percentage. They have also recorded 289 points thus far this season. They could, however, go into this game without the services of Cornerback Kevin King, Tight End Jimmy Graham, Wide Receiver Ryan Grant, and Offensive Tackler Bryan Bulaga, who are all reportedly questionable with injuries.

A third win in a row could go a long way to redefine their season.

They are currently 3rd in the NFC West Division with a 7-5 record this season and a win percentage of .583 and 283 points.
