Week 11: @ Washington Redskins
In the wild-card round this past January, the Packers were a step above Washington. A classy performance from Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay pass rush sealed the deal to advance.
While the Packers will be favored to win this one, they are going to slip-up at some point and it could be in Washington. The Redskins have the potential to beat any team on their day, and Kirk Cousins showed enough in 2015 to get excited about. Green Bay will lose games this season, and Washington pulls off the win at home.
Prediction: Loss (8-2)
Week 12: @ Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles were the darlings of the offseason a year ago, but it all fell flat and Chip Kelly was shown the door. The roster isn’t without talent, however, and they will look that much stronger if a prospect like Ezekiel Elliott joins them in the draft.
Green Bay should have too much talent on both sides of the ball to avoid a slip-up on the road, although this is far from an easy game. The Eagles are a work in progress, and the Packers should walk away with a victory on the road.
Prediction: Win (9-2)
