Packers’ Davante Adams scores 15th TD via Aaron Rodgers in 2020
The Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans are not only playing in primetime on Sunday evening; they are also playing in quite a snowstorm. With the Packers used to the icy climate of famed Lambeau Field, Green Bay wasted absolutely no time in finding the end zone as quarterback Aaron Rodgers quickly connected with Pro Bowl wide receiver Davante Adams, who is not-so-secretly his favorite target.
Adding to the importance of the Packers’ opening drive touchdown, Rodgers has now tossed a whopping 15 touchdowns to Adams in 2020-21.

Rodgers, Adams and the rest of the Packers offense has been feasting all season long as Green Bay currently owns the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC standings. With the NFC North division already wrapped up for the 2020-21 campaign, a win for the Packers on Sunday evening would clinch them a first round bye to begin the postseason.
It is also worth noting that the league recently changed its playoff format with the 2020-21 season slated to become the season that features only one first round bye per conference as opposed to two. Because of this major rule change, a win for Green Bay on Sunday evening is even more important with the archrival Chicago Bears up next in Week 17 for the Packers.
The Titans, meanwhile, are in the process of taking a major-league thrashing from the Packers. Green Bay leads 19-0 with four minutes left before halftime. The Titans are missing a crucial opportunity to pass the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South standings. The outstanding feature of the AFC playoff picture as of Sunday night is the glut of teams which have a chance to get an 11-5 record. There is a decent chance that at least one AFC team will miss the playoffs despite having an 11-5 record, all while the NFC East champion will have a losing record and possibly a mark as poor as 6-10, if the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles win next week.
