1. Rodgers Comes Out with a Purpose

The Packers drafted Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. They even traded up to grab the Utah State product. The organization backed Rodgers heading into the season, which was a good move. Regardless, Rodgers looks like he is on a revenge tour this season.

Through the first four games of the season, Rodgers threw 13 touchdowns without an interception. Against the Bucs, he threw his first two picks of the season and did not find the end zone. He is still an MVP candidate and he will remind us of that in this game.

It is never good for a defense to have to go up against an angry Rodgers. He has thrown just eight interceptions over the previous three seasons and has not finished with double-digit picks since 2010.

Turning the ball over is something that Rodgers does not like to do. When he does, the next game can be viewed as a bounce back. That is bad news for the Texans. Expect No. 12 to come out with a purpose in this one and lead the Packers to a win.
