The Green Bay Packers are finally set to begin their season this week against the Minnesota Vikings. While we are just now entering Week 1, everyone knows just how big of a game this is for the Packers. Taking a quick lead over the Vikings could come up huge later in the season.
Aaron Rodgers and company went through an interesting offseason. After going 13-3 in the regular season in 2019 and making a run to the NFC Championship Game, the Packers did not address their main position of need. They didn’t add wide receiver help.
While the Packers did go out and sign Devin Funchess in free agency, he chose to opt out of the 2020 season due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the Packers traded up in the 2020 NFL Draft for Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. That has led to questions about the future of Rodgers.
Despite all of the drama surrounding the Packers, the team strongly plans to contend in the NFC once again this year. Green Bay may not be viewed positively by most of the media, but they are still a very talented football team.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at three bold predictions for the Packers’ offense in Week 1 against the Vikings.
