Week 9: at New England Patriots

Green Bay stays on the road, making the long travel across the country. The last time Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady met, Rodgers came out on top. But that was at Lambeau. And it was four long years ago. In potentially the final time these two future Hall-of-Famers meet, the edge goes to the Patriots. In what should be a high-scoring game, the home team wins. Patriots 30, Packers 27 (5-3)

Week 10: vs. Miami Dolphins

This is a game the Packers should win. And barring a major upset, that’s exactly what I see happening. Josh Sitton will be returning to Lambeau for this one, this time not wearing the Bears colors, which is nice. Aaron Rodgers guides the Pack to a convincing victory at home. After a three-game losing run, this game came at the perfect time. Packers 31, Dolphins 17 (6-3)

Week 11: at Seattle Seahawks

Green Bay makes the trip to Seattle for the first time since that game. But they’ll have a happier memory this time. The Seahawks have lost a lot of talent on defense. Even with their excellent home field advantage, I expect the Pack to leave Seattle with a huge victory. Packers 27, Seahawks 23 (7-3)

Week 12: at Minnesota Vikings

The Packers have only played at U.S. Bank Stadium twice, but they already have some miserable memories there. Well now is the time for revenge. Remember the Anthony Barr hit on Aaron Rodgers? Now is the time to go into their stadium and win. Right? Forget about it. This game has a Vikings W written all over it. Vikings 28, Packers 17 (7-4)
