Green Bay Packers and New York Jets Game Preview
The Green Bay Packers are hoping to get in a win column today against the New York Jets. The Jets, meanwhile, are looking to start 2-0.
Last week: Seattle over Green Bay, 36-16. New York over Oakland, 19-14.
Last meeting: Green Bay over New York 9-0 in 2010.
Aaron Rodgers was 23-33 for 189 yards, a score, and interception last week. Geno Smith was 23 of 28 for 221 yards and a score in Week One. Chris Ivory paced the Jets rushing attack with 10 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown. Green Bay allowed Marshawn Lynch to rush 20 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns. So, can the Packers run defense be better in Week 2 against the Jets?
The offensive line must also be better for Green Bay. After Bryan Bulaga went out, Derek Sherrod came in and the game changed. Seattle's line took advantage and made Rodgers uncomfortable. Bulaga is questionable after sustaining a sprained MCL.
For today's game for the Jets, OG Willie Colon, TE Jeff Cumberland, DE Ikemefuna Enemkpall, CB Dee Milliner, and DL Muhammad Wilkerson are probable. S Josh Bush is questionable and LB A.J. Edds is out. For the Packers, TE Brandon Bostick, CB Demetri Goodson, and RB Eddie Lacy are probable. Bulaga is questionable and Brad Jones is out.
