Green Bay Packers: Week-by-week 2016 regular season predictions
Week 9: vs. Indianapolis Colts
This will be a rare meeting between Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck, and it should be a lot of fun to watch. Luck has carried his team in recent years without an offensive line or defense to support him, but you have to imagine the Colts will finally get him some help.
Luck likes to throw the football and can squeeze it into tight windows just like Rodgers can. If the Packers can force a turnover or two and apply pressure on Luck, you have to like their chances. It could be an offensive shootout, but Green Bay wins at Lambeau.
Prediction: Win (7-1)
Week 10: @ Tennessee Titans
As soon as the Tennessee Titans are finished spending their 20,000 draft picks received from the Los Angeles Rams, who knows how good their roster could be. Marcus Mariota looks like the real deal and will help Tennessee compete in the coming years, but like the Raiders last season, it’s going to take a bit of time.
For now, the Titans will be an inconsistent team and one the Packers should be able to beat on the road. Tennessee won’t be a pushover like last term, but Aaron Rodgers should be able to exploit their defense and lead Green Bay to victory.
Prediction: Win (8-1)
