At Current Rate, Packers Likely To Match Worst Record Since 2008
Green Bay is flat out bad this season and don't have many bright spots on the current roster. With six games left in the regular season, the Packers are likely to miss the playoffs and have their worst record since 2008 unless they completely turn it around.
With how bad the Packers are playing and with all the injuries that have decimated the roster all season, I could see them winning only two more games. The Packers only hope for the rest of the season rests on Rodgers and if the offense can put up outrageous numbers. They will have to outscore every opponent because the defense is playing horrible and isn't going to get any better before the season ends.
Nov. 28 - @ Philadelphia L
Monday Night Football against a top ten Eagles defense and decent offense with a decimated Green Bay defensive unit, has bad news written all over it for the Packers. The Green Bay defense has given up an average of 38 points the last four games. I don't see Rodgers and company putting up enough points to outscore the Eagles offense. Which is sad because the Philly offense isn't anything special this year but that's just how bad the Packers defense is.
Dec. 4 - Houston W
One of the two games that looks winnable is week 13 against Houston. Green Bay should be able to put up enough points and be able to stop an offense that is hit or miss. That being said, Houston has DeAndre Hopkins who could be a nightmare for the the Packers secondary. If the Texans offense shows up and Brock Osweiler has a good game throwing the ball, the Packers could drop this one as well.
Dec. 11 - Seattle L
Not much to explain here, Seattle is a top three team in the league. The Seahawks offense has been much better as of late and the Packers defense isn't going to solve their problems in two weeks, so this is going to be an absolute blowout. The Packers offense will be way over matched against a top ranked defense that is only giving up an average of 17 points a game. There's no way the Packers receivers get enough separation and with almost no rushing attack, it's unlikely the Packers get into the endzone more than twice.
Dec. 18. - @ Chicago W
This should be another for sure win but with how the Packers are playing, you never know. Aaron Rodgers should be able to put the ball in the endzone at least three times against a defense that ranks 23rd in the redzone and the Packers defense should be able to hold the Bears to a low score like week seven. Jay Cutler is likely done for the season, so the Packers will be facing Matt Barkley. In his first career start against the Titans, he threw for 316 yards, three touchdowns, two interceptions and had a 72.8% passer rating. Add this to a Bears offensive line that is banged up and the Packers should have an easy task.
Dec. 24 - Minnesota L
Despite the struggles with the offensive line, the Vikings still have one of the best defenses in the league. Green Bay has shown that they can't even stop average receivers, let alone guys that are above average. Stefon Diggs had nine catches for 182 yards and a touchdown against the Packers in week two. I expect that he'll have a similar performance unless Green Bay has more success getting to Bradford. The Packers won't score much on the third ranked defense in yards and second ranked defense in points unless their receivers can get more separation downfield than they did in week two.
Jan. 1 - @ Detroit L
This game will be decided by the Detroit offense and if the Matt Stafford completely blows the Packers defense out of the water like he could. After starting 0-4, the Lions are 6-1 since and have only given up an average of 19 points a game. Which is pretty impressive considering that they're nothing special. Rodgers should be able to pick the Lions defense apart but considering how Detroit has played the last seven weeks, it might not be enough to win.
