Green Bay Packers: 3 Players Who Must Step Up in Order to Make a Playoff Run

Packers Wire - USA Today

The Green Bay Packers have had a rough season so far in 2018 and are currently 4-4-1 heading into their key Thursday Night Football matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. Despite their rough start, the Packers still firmly believe that they have a chance to make a run into the NFC playoffs.

Aaron Rodgers is still on the roster, which means that the Packers should not be counted out until they are mathematically eliminated. He has shown the ability to lead his teams to massive runs and back into playoff races after they were considered out of them. Green Bay also has quite a bit of talent around their franchise quarterback.

Defensively, the Packers have taken a big step in the right direction. They are among the league leaders in sacks and their secondary has proven that they can defend at a high level and make some plays.

Offensively, the Packers have a much more balanced attack than they have had in recent years and appear to be much deeper as well.

New general manager Brian Gutekunst has fixed quite a few of the holes that the Packers had last year. Unfortunately, the team is still struggling to come together and win games.

All of that being said, which three players need to step up in a big way in order to help the Packers make the unexpected run to the playoffs?
