Arguably the best NFL game of this week is taking place tonight on Thursday Night Football. It'll be a battle of NFC titans as the Green Bay Packers host the Philadelphia Eagles.

Green Bay owns an impressive 3-0 record in large part because of its defense. In years past the team has relied on Aaron Rodgers to carry the team, but that isn't the case any longer.

Things haven't been nearly as smooth in Philadelphia. Despite all the preseason chatter about the Eagles being Super Bowl contenders, the offense has struggled due to a ridiculous amount of drops.

Carson Wentz has shown through the first three games that he's capable of leading the Eagles. However, the rest of the offense hasn't really done their part.

We're only three weeks into the NFL season, but it can be argued that tonight is a must-win scenario for Philadelphia. Coming back from a 1-3 record would be tough, especially when the Dallas Cowboys are off to an incredible start.

ESPN released its final prediction for this Thursday night showdown and it doesn't bode well for Philly.

According to ESPN's Football Power Index, the Packers have a 64.3 percent chance of defeating the Eagles.

This has the potential to be a shootout between Rodgers and Wentz. In the event that happens, it'd be fun to see which gunslinger wins that duel.

Kickoff for this game is at 8:20 p.m. ET from Lambeau Field.

Which team do you think will come out on top: Green Bay or Philadelphia?
