Week 4: vs. Steelers

When the Packers played the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, it was an absolute thriller as they took home the Lombardi Trophy.

The Packers/Steelers rivalry will be renewed when they face each other in Week 4. Rodgers vs. Ben Roethlisberger is always fun to watch.

Both offenses are very efficient. Green Bay will take advantage of the running and passing game with Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon, Davante Adams, and several others.

The Packers will certainly have their hands full on defense. To emerge victorious, they need to put the brakes on Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson, Ray-Ray McCloud, and JuJu Smith-Schuster. It will be an exciting, close battle with both teams engaging in fierce competition.

This potential Super Bowl matchup will be worth watching.

Week 9: at Chiefs

This is probably the most-anticipated game on Green Bay’s schedule this season. While this is another potential Super Bowl matchup, the regular season game between the Packers and Chiefs will not disappoint.

Expectations are very high for this matchup as two of the best quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes, will go head-to-head in what will be a big showdown. The competition will be at an all-time high.

The Packers defense also needs to play aggressive as they will face Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Defense will be an important factor in this game. The team that plays the best defense will come out on top. In the secondary, Adrian Amos, Darnell Savage, Jaire Alexander, and Eric Stokes need to provide excellent coverage to slow down Kansas City’s explosive receivers.

NFL fans nationwide are looking forward to this prime-time battle. A Packers win against the Chiefs would definitely put the rest of the league on notice.
