How many games will the Packers win in the next four weeks?
While I got the record of 2-2 in those games correct and was just four points off the exact score in the Packers’ victory over the Houston Texans, that’s about as good as it got. I predicted wins over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings, and a loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
So, let’s try it again. Here’s my attempt at predicting the next four games on Green Bay’s schedule, starting next weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Week 10: Jacksonville Jaguars
Hopefully, the Packers will get some key players back from injury in this game. Even if that’s not the case, they should be big winners in this game.
Since a surprise opening-day victory, the Jacksonville Jaguars lost six in a row up to their bye week. They’ll have an opportunity to get back on track with a game against the Houston Texans this week, but the Packers are the stronger team by a long way.
Allowing the second-most yards per game in the NFL as well as 31.4 points per game, Jacksonville’s struggling defense will have no answer for Green Bay’s offense.
Prediction: Green Bay 40, Jacksonville 17 (7-2)
