Can the Green Bay Packers respond with a win after their London loss? As they aim to get back on track, here are three bold predictions for Week 6.
Perfect. That’s the Green Bay Packers‘ record in regular-season games immediately following a loss under head coach Matt LaFleur.
To keep this record intact, the Packers must overcome a New York Jets team far exceeding their preseason expectations.
Packers head coach Matt LaFleur goes head-to-head with close friend Robert Saleh, head coach of the Jets, as well as his brother Mike, New York’s offensive coordinator.
The Packers must put last week’s disappointing performance in London behind them and ensure they don’t lose to New York teams in consecutive weeks.
Is it time for three bold predictions? You bet it is.
Rasul Douglas gets a pick-six
Packers defensive coordinator Joe Barry hinted that Rasul Douglas could get more snaps on the outside, and he should. Douglas looks more comfortable outside, and it’s where he can impact the game the most.
It’s been a while since Douglas made a key interception. He had five last season, including two pick-sixes.
While Jets quarterback Zach Wilson looks more comfortable in year two, he is still a young player and has thrown two interceptions in two games this season. In his 15 career starts, Wilson has thrown for 2,796 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
Opportunities could be there for a turnover, and I predict Douglas takes an interception to the house.
