– Defense –
If you played the Packers defense, what a swing in momentum you might have caused for your opponent.
The Packers led all NFL defenses with 26 points while scoring 3 touchdowns, forcing 4 turnovers, and registering 4 sacks.
Coincidentally, the Packers have only scored 20 or more fantasy points one time.
That was against the Vikings.
Teddy Bridgewater will be starting for the Vikings this time around and is a improvement from Christian Ponder. With that said, Bridgewater is still turning the ball over on a consistent rate so the Packers should be able to get a takeaway or two.
Look for the Packers defense to have another good week.
Standard Scoring Projection: 12 points
