Week 7 vs. Washington
Washington has been a down team for a while, but they are certainly on the upswing. Chase Young anchors a solid defensive unit. On offense, Ryan Fitzpatrick is capable of leading their offense until the future quarterback is there.
They also have Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel, and Dyami Brown at receiver. They have plenty of weapons on offense. Coach Rivera is turning this team around.
I think Washington will put up a good fight, but the Packers being at home is going to be too much for the Football Team.
Packers 23, Football Team 18 (6-1)
Week 8 at Cardinals
Arizona has been a nightmare for the Packers. They have lost multiple playoff games there over the years. Now, they have to go back to Arizona again this year as they play the entire NFC West.
Not only do they have to travel, but it’s also a short week for Green Bay as this game is scheduled to be played on Thursday night.
This is a sneaky trap game as maybe they start peering ahead at the next week when they have to travel to Kansas City.
Cardinals steal one away from Green Bay.
Packers 23, Cardinals 27 (6-2)
Week 9 at Kansas City
This is likely the hardest game on the schedule. They defeated the Patrick Mahomes-less Chiefs in 2019 at Kansas City. This year, I’m not planning on Mahomes being gone. It’s going to be a very tough game for Green Bay.
If this game was at home, I’d feel better about the Packers’ chances. Kansas City just has too many weapons on offense for the defense to keep up.
We’ll get them when we see them again in February.
Packers 20, Chiefs 31 (6-3)
Week 10 vs. Seahawks
This is a chance to get right for the Pack. Green Bay has gotten the better of Seattle in the past few years, and I think that trend continues this season as well, especially at home.
Jaire Alexander can shut down whoever he is lined up against, whether it’s DK Metcalf or Tyler Lockett. I also think the Packers have Russell Wilson figured out for the most part. Without much of an offensive line, the Green Bay pass rush will have Wilson running for his life during the game, forcing a turnover or two, which proves to be the difference.
Packers 27, Seahawks 21 (7-3)
