It's clear why the Green Bay Packers are the touchdown underdogs in Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Here are the reasons why the Packers could win an upset victory. 

The Green Bay Packers won just four of their six remaining games in 2016, and they were playing at Philadelphia Eagles under primetime lights.  

The Packers won an upset, initiating the sweep of the table to reach the playoffs. 

The Packers will be in a similar situation in 2022 with four wins, six more games, and a primetime match against the Eagles.  

These are three reasons why the Packers can make some history, at least one night. 

Jones vs. Weak Run Defense Green Bay and Philadelphia have two of the worst run defenses in the NFL

Both teams stood up last week to stop the top running backs. While the Packers did a great job against Titans' Derrick Henry, the Eagles were able to stop Jonathan Taylor of the Colts in the second quarter.
