The 2016 regular season comes to a close on Sunday Night Football with the Detroit Lions hosting the Green Bay Packers with the NFC North on the line.

Welcome to the final Sunday Night Football of the season. And it is a big one. The Detroit Lions host the Green Bay Packers with the NFC North title on the line. The game kicks off at 5:25 p.m. PT on NBC. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are calling the game from the booth, and Michele Tafoya has the sideline duties.

The upside for both teams in this games is that the loser wins the final wild card berth. Washington lost to the New York Giants, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers needed various things to happen that did not happen. The winner of this game will host the New York Giants next weekend, while the loser will travel to face the Seattle Seahawks.

The Packers are a 3.5-point favorite heading into Detroit. I think the Lions cover, but I’m not sure we see a win. This likely ends up a really tight, fun matchup.
