    I thought the Vikings might do it. I'm not a big fan, but was wondering what others were thinking. I'm going with their first loss at the Lions.

    I'm going to go ahead and say the Chargers. Teams have been terrible (3-9) coming off the Bye this year. I guess the new Labor Deal includes a mandatory 4 day "no practice" clause during the Bye Week that has turned into a 4 day Buffet/Golf extravaganza for these guys.

    I can see the bye argument, but the Chargers aren't the team to beat the Packers this year.

    The Packers -- if anyone can beat them -- are going to get beaten by a smash-mouth defense that has some offensive talent.

    Look, I have Aaron Rogers, Mason Crosby, and the Packers D in fantasy, so I hope they go 16-0, but because of all that I've watched every one of their games and their weakness is their game planning... If you put them on a defense that has the ability to disrupt the best laid plans of Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers, they're very vulnerable -- even if only momentarily so.

    The only teams I can see getting in their way with their remaining schedule are DET, NYG, and CHI, and considering there's a very good chance they'll be going into the final two games 14-0 with home field already clenched, with DET and CHI both having something to prove moving into the play-offs, it's sad to say, but I'm betting the organization will sluff off one or both of those games just to prevent injury going into the post season.

    I wouldn't rule out the Vikings playing spoiler as well. They didn't suck once they benched McNabb, and just like a Cowboys/Redskins game, anything can happen between two rivals who're that full of hate.

    I have to give all my support to Aaron Rodgers, though. I drafted him first in fantasy this year with the 2nd over-all pick, (hence me having RB troubles), but I don't regret it one bit. Ever since I watched him come in as an NFL freshman, I've been more impressed with him than any other QB I've witnessed in my adult life. I honestly believe he's going to go down in history with Montana, Young, Favre, Marino, etc. (Notice the Dallas fan left out Aikman... Fuck that guy) Barring injury, of course.

    tl:dr: CHI or DET, but not because they're better teams. Especially since both of those final games are at Lambo. Possibly MIN, but I'd only bet no spread if I was getting like 8:1 on my money.

    I will probably get laughed at for this but at KC is always a tough game even when the Chiefs are terrible. It seems like a lot of undefeated teams get beat by teams that they shouldn't lose to right around week 14 too.

    I'd say the Lions have a shot at home. Fuck no on the Giants game, they will fall apart under Rodgers' assault. I'm guessing the Chargers will jump out to an early lead (17-3 at half) then melt in the second half. Otherwise I agree with V_T, once they've clinched home field they will throw the third stringers out there and lose to someone clawing for a WC spot.

    Yeah they were talking about on the Simmons or Berry football podcast. 5 of the 6 teams coming off their bye week lost this past week.

    thats an unusually weak schedule for a defending super bowl champ, i honestly wouldn't be surprised if they went 16-0 but i think they will lose either the thanksgiving day game to the lions because for the first time in 20+ years the thanksgiving game in detroit means something or they will lose that last game against detroit because the lions might be playing for a playoff spot and the pack will have everything locked up just like the 07 pats against he giants in week 17

    2 weeks ago I said Detroit had the possibility of being the first team to beat the Packers. Now with the Lions having suffered two losses and there being some chinks in their armor, I'm not sure about that. I don't trust the Chargers or Giants. So I think there is a strong possibility that the Packers can go 16-0.

    I think St. Louis did that to someone a few years ago. You might be right. It's always funny how a contender like GB will get beat 28-6 or something along those lines by a KC type team. There is usually one good meltdown per season.

    its a matchup thing, i think the lions can stop the gb offense enough to beat them. The packers have a shot at going 16-0 but they aren't unbeatable at all

    it is usually always a bad team that ends the streak, i remember one year when the broncos were 13-0 and lost to the giants who at the time were horrendous

    I get the match-up thing and that's why I thought Detroit's defensive live would cause havoc for Rodgers and the Packers. But teams can run on Detroit. I could see McCarthy feeding both Grant and Starks the ball enough that the Lions will have bring down extra help to stop the run. Then Aaron Rodgers will just do his thing and start throwing to 5-6 different receivers.

    I think they will lose at least one or possibly oth of the last 2 games of the season.

    I think they will go for health into the playoffs over an undefeated season.

    The Patriots were insane the year they went undefeated and they weren't backing down for anything. They had to make people forget that they got caught cheating.

    Crazy prediction: Packers don't win again this season.

    Between injuries and their final two opponents playing for their playoff lives, they could easily drop the last two. And in the playoffs, anything could happen in the 2nd round.

    Have you seen the Bears play lately?
    They could lose to the Lions... BUT if they do somehow lose to the Bears, they might need to beat Detroit for the #1 seed..
    Not sure who gets it if both GB and SF are 13-3
