Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - As good as Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, has been in home games this season, it's hard not to predict that his favorite wide receiver, Jordy Nelson, will go big in Week 17.

Nelson has been spectacular at home this season, particularly catching the long ball. He's averaging a stunning 23.97 ypc at Lambeau Field. He's also averaging 116.4 ypg with nine touchdowns in seven contests.

Green Bay can clinch a first-round bye if things go right and throwing the ball to Nelson usually makes things go very right.

The Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. has been the best pass receiver in football over the past two months, He's not just making the spectacular one-handed catches, he's making all of them. Over the past eight games he's amassed 1,014 yards (126.7 ypg) and eight touchdowns. He's even making Eli Manning look good. He'll face an Eagles secondary that gives up the long ball. Often.

Dallas wideout Dez Bryant is a touchdown machine. He's caught a league-leading 14 this season, including four in the past two games. Few defenses can hold him down and Washington isn't one of them.

Julio Jones (oblique) didn't practice at all last week and still posted 107 yards on Sunday against New Orleans. He probably won't practice much this week either, but with the division title on the line, he's going to be a big part of the game plan.
