Predicting the Packers’ next three games after their Week 1 loss.
Is it time to R-E-L-A-X or P-A-N-I-C for the Green Bay Packers? Their defeat to the New Orleans Saints was by far the worst of the Matt LaFleur era, perhaps more worrying for their approach to the game than even their performance.
However, as Aaron Rodgers said, there are still 16 games to go. In previous years, that would be an entire regular season. Needless to say, there’s still a long way to go.
The Packers’ schedule early in the season does present some tough challenges, however, including in the next four games.
When Week 4 comes to an end, how many victories will Green Bay have on the board?
Week 2: Detroit Lions
This is the perfect game to bounce back. Yes, the Lions will battle hard, but the Packers have the more talented roster and should be able to move the ball against a defense that just allowed 41 points and is without their number one cornerback.
If Green Bay puts in a similar performance to last week, perhaps it is a sign to be concerned about. But that shouldn’t be the expectation.
It will be their first Lambeau game in front of over 80,000 fans since 2019. It will be a special atmosphere and a great Packers bounce-back win.
Green Bay 38, Detroit 14 (1-1)
