Green Bay Packers Face NFL’s Hottest Team in New England


A questionable Aaron Rodgers and a 7-3 upset by the Detroit Lions has the Green Bay Packers limping into one of the biggest games of the season.

While the New England Patriots (11-2) will be more than just another bump in the road, the Packers (8-5) need to find a way to overcome this offensive funk they have found their selves in. Particularly on third down where the Packers went 2-for-12 in the loss to the Lions. If they cannot do this, they may be a ten-win team looking from the outside when it comes time for the playoffs.

Packers Accept Unfamiliar Role in Week 8

In the case of the week eight battle between the Green Bay Packers (4-3) and New York Jets (5-1), the spread does have meaning, particularly in regards to the status of the Packers.

At +6.5, week eight marks the first week the Packers are officially considered the underdog in terms of the spread. The fact that the Packers played seven straight games from the favored side just goes to show you the high expectations placed on a team picked by many to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
