It wasn’t the blowout that some of us were expecting, but the Green Bay Packers got the win nonetheless.

This week the Packers will have their biggest fight of the season thus far when the visiting New England Patriots come to Lambeau.

It seems that most pundits are labeling this as a preview of a possible Super Bowl match-up, but does that mean a lot of points?

Before we dive into this week’s game, let’s take a look at how last week played out.

Last week:

Aaron Rodgers – Projected – 27; Actual – 19

Eddie Lacy – Projected – 18; Actual – 25

Jordy Nelson – Projected – 15; Actual – 6

Randall Cobb – Projected – 16; Actual – 5

Davante Adams – Projected – 9; Actual – 1

Tight Ends – Projected – 4; Actual – 11

Defense – Projected – 12; Actual – 4

Mason Crosby – Projected – 10; Actual – 7

I must admit, it was a poor showing on my part as well as the Packers when it came to fantasy this week.

Eddie Lacy went above and beyond with his two scores while Andrew Quarless and Richard Rodgers combined for 11 points including one touchdown.

Hopefully with the playoffs looming, the Packers will step it up.
