Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are still fresh off of their big Week 1 win over the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings. After an offseason full of criticism and questions, the Packers rose to the occasion. Now, the Packers have another NFC North showdown in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions.
Fans could not be more excited about Sunday’s game after seeing the Packers in action last week. Beating the Vikings so convincingly and seeing a vintage version of Rodgers has confidence at an all-time high.
Granted, the Packers need to see more from their defense this week. Matthew Stafford and company have found ways to give Green Bay troubles in years past.
This week, the Packers need to take this game very seriously. While the Lions aren’t expected to make the playoffs, they are not a pushover either. Green Bay needs to come in looking to take control of this game from the opening kickoff.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at four bold predictions for the Packers this week as they take on the Lions.
