- The Green Bay Packers (5-8) are touchdown favorites over the visiting Los Angeles Rams (4-9) in Week 15
- Christian Watson has 313 receiving yards and eight total TDs in his past four games alone
- Monday Night Football on ESPN kicks off from Lambeau Field on December 19 at 8:15pm ET
In what likely will go down as the highlight of his career, Baker Mayfield led the Rams on a miraculous 98-yard game-winning touchdown drive over the Raiders last Thursday night. Now, after a full week of practice, the twice-discarded quarterback heads to Lambeau Field to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
Packers vs Rams
Green Bay returns after a bye
Aaron Rodgers’ broken right thumb and injured ribs should be feeling better after his Week 14 bye. But one has to wonder how long he’ll keep suiting up with the Packers all but out of the NFC playoff picture at 5-8. While this week’s matchup with the Rams is exceedingly winnable, Green Bay has upcoming games with Miami, Minnesota and Detroit. All teams currently competing for a spot in the postseason.
Matt Lafleur may also be eager to get an extended look at Jordan Love before too long. Especially with new reports suggesting the third-year QB would request a trade if No. 12 returns for another season.

Can Baker deliver again?
Where will the Baker Mayfield-Sean McVay partnership go from here? It’s tempting to believe the former No. 1 overall pick will be able to revive his career under a Super Bowl-winning offensive genius. But no one will be surprised if he throws two interceptions against a Packers defense that permits the fifth-fewest passing yards per game.
Los Angeles would be wise to target a Green Bay run D that is allowing the third-most rushing yards (154.5) per week. Yet, only two teams have run the ball less effectively than the Rams in 2022. They’re averaging only 86.1 yards per game on the ground.
Green Bay vs Los Angeles
Green Bay is a 7-point home favorite at Lambeau Field on Monday night. And the over-under is set at only 39 points. No one would have believed it coming into the year but both the Rams and Packers are bottom-10 in points scored. They average only 16.8 and 20.2 points per game, respectively. Both clubs’ defenses are middle of the pack in points allowed.
The arrival of Christian Watson has made life much easier for Rodgers in recent weeks. The rookie receiver has 15 receptions for 313 yards and eight total TDs in the past four games alone.

One more loss for the Packers would set the stage for Jordan Love to start the rest of the season. That’s something the reigning two-time MVP would love to prevent from happening. The 39-year-old Rodgers will take care of business on Monday Night in Lambeau.
Final Score Prediction: Green Bay 24, Rams 16
