Green Bay Will Sack Matthew Stafford Six Times

During their Week 1 matchup against the Vikings, the Packers were only able to record two sacks. One of those came on the big safety from Jaire Alexander, while star pass-rusher Za’Darius Smith also chipped in a sack.

Mike Pettine will look to bring a lot more pressure against the Lions. It will pay off with at least six sacks in the game.

Smith will come through with at least two sacks himself and both Rashan Gary and Preston Smith will have at least one sack. The Packers have the makings of an elite pass-rush. However, it’s time for them to prove that they can be elite.

Stafford will be under pressure all game long and the Packers’ pass-rush will give the secondary quite a few opportunities to make some big plays and force turnovers.
