3. Packers’ defense allows fewest points in NFL
Defense could be the Packers’ strength this season. When it comes to the big games, they will need to restrict their opponents. We saw this in January’s playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Green Bay’s special teams was responsible for a touchdown allowed, while Joe Barry’s defense only gave up two field goals. A total of six points.
That should’ve been enough to win the game. The fact it wasn’t takes nothing away from the dominant defensive performance.
And we could see more of it in 2022.
We’ve already discussed Rashan Gary and the potential impact he can make this season, but he’s not alone. The Packers have talent at every level of their defense with at least one Pro Bowler or All-Pro.
Kenny Clark is a two-time Pro Bowler and leads a deep defensive line featuring veteran Jarran Reed, Dean Lowry, talented second-year player T.J. Slaton, and first-round pick Devonte Wyatt.
In the middle of the defense, the Packers have first-team All-Pro De’Vondre Campbell starting alongside first-round pick Quay Walker.
And in the secondary, All-Pro and Pro Bowler Jaire Alexander leads the way alongside former first-round picks Eric Stokes, Darnell Savage, and talented safety Adrian Amos.
This could be the best Packers defense in a decade, and they could end 2022 with the fewest points allowed.
