-Defense –

The defense didn’t play good last week, but they didn’t play bad either. They forced a turnover and got two sacks but Teddy Bridgewater was successful at evading the pass rush for the most part.

I feel that if the Vikings had a better quarterback, last week could have been very different as the Packers lacked any type of pop down the stretch.

This week they can’t afford to be complacent. Tom Brady will not make the mistakes that Bridgewater made.

The Patriots are also going to pound the football with either LeGarrette Blount or Jonas Gray. Will the Packers sub par run defense be able to contain them?

It’s just far too risky to play the Packers defense this week. I think the odds are stacked against them.
