The Packers are coming off of a good win in the previous week against the struggling Giants and they play another struggling team this week in the Redskins. The Redskins are 3-9 on the year and currently they are starting a rookie quarterback who has been struggling. The Packers are currently sitting at a 9-3 record atop of the NFC North and they are looking to keep it that way. A win this week would give them a 10-3 record and would put some pressure on the Vikings who are in second place. The Packers are a 13-point favorite in this game due to the fact that we are at home and that the Redskins have been struggling. The Packers injury report is pretty blank for this game, the Packers have been really blessed this year on the injury side of football. The only person on the injury report for the Packers is cornerback Kevin King and he is listed as questionable. The Redskins have a few injuries that could be impactful, but it is not likely. My prediction for this game is that the Packers will blow them out at home by a score of 38-10. This will be my last blog, thanks for reading! Go Pack Go!
The Packers were looking to bounce back after a tough loss against the 49ers a week ago and they did just that. After a pretty handily defeat at the hands of the 49ers, the Packers came back this last week and handed the Giants a loss. The Packers started the game on defense and made a quick stop and got the ball for the first time in the game. Aaron Rodgers started the game out at a fast pace and the Packers drove down the field and scored quite quickly, giving the Packers the early 7-0 lead over the Giants. The Giants did answer back pretty quickly with a touchdown pass from rookie quarterback Daniel Jones making the score 7-7. Aaron Rodgers answered back immediately with a touchdown pass to young wide receiver Allen Lazard, making the score 14-7 Green Bay. At the start of the second quarter Packers cornerback Kevin King intercepted a pass from Daniel Jones on 3rd and 10, giving the Packers great field position heading into the next drive. The Packers took advantage and kicker Mason Crosby made a 47-yard field goal to make the score 17-7 Green Bay. After that, the Giants made a long drive down the field that ended in a field goal as well making the score 17-10 Green Bay. After that, nothing else happened in the 1st half sending us into halftime with the Packers receiving the second half kick off.
The Packers started with the ball in the second half and didn’t make anything of it and ended up punting the ball back to the Giants. The Giants had one big play on the drive that put them in field goal range and they made it, making the score 17-13 Packers on top. The Packers had a long sustained drive following the field goal from the Giants and Aaron Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to star receiver Davante Adams for his second touchdown reception of the game making the score 24-13 Packers. Following this Packers touchdown the Packers got another takeaway courtesy of rookie safety Darnell Savage setting Aaron Rodgers with good field position. The Packers took advantage very quickly on the next drive with a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to veteran tight end Mercedes Lewis making the score 31-13 Packers. The score would stay the same for the rest of the game and the Packers would improve to 9-3 on the season and in the lead in the NFC North. Come back Saturday for a game preview for week 14. Go Pack Go!
The Packers are coming off a tough loss in week 12 against the current 1-seed in the NFC in the 49ers but they look to bounce back against a Giants team that has a rookie quarterback and has had a rough year. The Packers sit at 8-3, while the Giants sit at 2-9. Even though the Packers are traveling to New York for this game, they are still heavily favored to be the victors. The Giants have been struggling with injuries the whole year and it won’t stop this week as tight end Evan Engram and wide receiver Golden Tate will not be participating in this one, which will make it hard for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones to find targets for the passing game. The Giants will likely rely heavily on star running back Saquon Barkley, who has had a bit of an off year compared to last season. Even though the Packers are on the road for this game they are still favored to win by a 6.5 point margin. A let down this week could be disastrous for the Packers season as a whole. The Packers injury report looks promising as many of the players listed as questionable are scheduled to play in this game. Let’s hope for a better week this week! See you Wednesday for the summary! Go Pack Go!
The Packers will be heading into their week 7 match-up with the Raiders sitting at a record of 5-1 looking to improve to 6-1 and stay at the top of the NFC North division, in which they hold a pretty solid lead. The Packers will most likely be heading into week 7 without their star wide-out Davante Adams for the 3rd straight week. There is also a chance that receiver Geronimo Allison will be out this week after taking a violent hit last week against the Lions. This puts a lot more pressure on the younger receivers of the Packers and veterans Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers. Look for the Packers to use their run game to help the passing game get started without Adams in the line-up. The Packers also head into this game without stand out rookie defensive back Darnell Savage. The Raiders come into this match-up with a 3-2 record and look to remain above .500 on the year. The Packers will be heading into this game as 4.5 point favorites against the Raiders playing home at Lambeau Field once again. My final score prediction for this game is Packers 31, Raiders 17. I just don’t see the game being as close as they have predicted for the betting line, just because the Packers are superior at every facet of the game. Look for the game recap this Wednesday. Have a great week!
Following a great win in week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys, the Packers look to keep their momentum going in the week 6 match-up against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football at Lambeau Field. The betting line for this game is currently sitting at the Packers as 4.5-point favorites to beat the Lions. In my opinion, betting lines in the NFL don’t mean that much because they are heavily dependent on who is the home team, which doesn’t always mean everything. The Packers have struggled over the last two years against the Lions mostly due to the fact that Aaron Rodgers has had injury problems over the last two years. But the Packers are hopeful coming off of a career game for running back Aaron Jones and just a great offensive performance overall. If they continue that and their defense plays well, I believe that the Packers will win this game quite handily, I would say by more than the betting line suggests. Not to mention, this game is a very important game for both teams as they are both a part of the NFC North, and the Packers are in first at 4-1 and the Lions are in second at 2-1-1. The Packers would have a pretty large lead in the NFC North only through six weeks if they can pull this win off this week against the Lions. Stop by next week for a game recap of the Packers week 6 match-up vs the Lions! Have a good weekend!
The packers and their fans were very hopeful going into week 4 undefeated, and playing at home on a Thursday night against a struggling Eagles team. It started off well as the Packers defense got a stop right away in the first quarter. The Packers offense quickly drove down the field and scored immediately following the defensive stop on a 3-yard touchdown rush by Packers running back Aaron Jones. Following another defensive stop, the Packers offense got to work again and had a promising drive but ended up being stopped at the Eagles 12-yard line. They then opted for a field goal from Packers kicker Mason Crosby and made it 10-0 with 14:01 left in the 2nd quarter.
Following the Packers field goal, the Eagles struck back quickly. They had a short 2 minute drive down the field and Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw a touchdown pass to receiver Alshon Jefferey. After this point the Eagles never really looked back and the Packers defense struggled to get stops following a scoreless first quarter from the defensive side of the ball. Following the Eagles touchdown the Packers drove down the field once again and opted for a 31-yard field goal by Crosby. The following drive for the Eagles ended in another touchdown pass from Wentz making it 14-13 Philadelphia. The Packers then didn’t score the following drive and gave the ball back to the Eagles offense, who once again drove down the field and scored on a 1-yard touchdown carry by Eagles running back Jordan Howard. The Eagles now led 21-13 with 1 minute left in the first half, but if anyone can drive down the field quick and score it is Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. In Rodgers fashion he did drive down the field in less than a minute and threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to receiver Geronimo Allison making it 21-20 with the Eagles leading at halftime.
The Eagles started off the second half scoring with a 21-yard touchdown pass from Wentz to Jordan Howard, making the score 27-20 Philly. Following the touchdown by the Eagles, the Packers offense scored again on a touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Graham, making the score even at 27-27. The Eagles struck back immediately and made the score 34-27 on a touchdown run by Jordan Howard. The Packers offense then drove all the way down to the 1-yard line and failed to score on 4 straight plays, turning the ball over on downs, and giving it back to the eagles. From this point until the end of the game neither team scored, highlighted by the Eagles defense intercepting Aaron Rodgers in the end zone with 20 seconds left, thereby ending the game at a final score of 34-27 Philadelphia. The Packers move to 3-1 and the Eagles to 2-2. The Packers and fans are highly anticipating the week 5 match-up against the the Dallas Cowboys who are also 3-1 coming off of a loss to the New Orleans Saints. Stay tuned for a post later this week about the Packers upcoming game and the predictions that go along with it. Have a great week!
