3 bold predictions for Packers without Aaron Rodgers vs. Chiefs
1. Packers win
Some might say it’s not a bold prediction to say the team with seven consecutive wins get the W. But of course, without Aaron Rodgers, this is a different ballgame. And while the Chiefs’ record isn’t particularly good, they have one of the league’s best offenses and Arrowhead Stadium is a tough venue for visiting teams.
WynnBET has Green Bay as seven-point underdogs this week so, yes, it would be an upset if the Packers defeat the Chiefs.
Unlikely? Maybe. Impossible? Far from it.
The Giants gave the Chiefs real problems last week — many teams have. The Packers are a far better team than the Giants and will be boosted by the return of Davante Adams and Allen Lazard. The Chiefs’ defense is nothing to fear, either, ranking 29th in yards allowed this season.
The Packers were underdogs last week, too. They went on the road to face an undefeated Arizona Cardinals team on a short week without Adams, Lazard, or even their defensive coordinator due to COVID-19, not to mention a list of All-Pros out with injury. Green Bay dominated for much of the game and came away with victory.
Facing more adversity, the same can be true this week. I’m predicting another Packers win.
