Week 4: vs. Buffalo Bills
Three out of the first four games are at home. The first quarter of the season is, arguably, the easiest stretch of games for the Packers.
After leaving Lambeau for one game, they come right back to a pretty easy opponent.
The Bills are in the same situation as the Vikings and Redskins, bringing in a new quarterback. Unlike the other two, the Bills are starting a rookie quarterback in Josh Allen.
Some will say that it’s not definite that Allen will be starting, but trading as much capital as they did proves otherwise. Although they did sign A.J. McCarron, they will start their rookie year one.
During the 2017 season, the Bills went 3-5 on the road, squeaking into the playoffs with a 9-7 record while needing a win at Miami in Week 17 to get in.
Week 4 will be the week where the Packers will see what they have as far as depth-wise at key positions. Positions that will prove vital to their success as the year goes on.
The edge rush and secondary are two position groups that will need to prove themselves this week. Guys like Kyler Fackrell, Vince Biegel, Dean Lowry and Quinten Rollins will need to prove themselves if they want to stick around.
Prediction: Packers 27, Bills 10 (4-0)
