At 2-1, the Green Bay Packers escaped Week 3 with a close victory after staring a 1-2 start in the face for the majority of Sunday afternoon.

Jordan Love and his offense suffered from some self-inflicted, silly mistakes but ultimately were able to pull it off. Now, they enter Week 4 with a pivotal, divisional matchup with the Detroit Lions.

Before we look ahead to the game, though, let's look at a few trades the Packers could make to help fill some holes and make this team unstoppable.

Trade Number 1: The Packers make a move to fortify their back field

The first deal that could make some sense and not cost too much is for the Packers to go after Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson. The veteran is in the final year of his contract, and Washington has gone back and forth when it comes to committing to using Gibson. They can't seem to make up their mind, and are sure to move on from him next offseason.

With Aaron Jones easing back from injury and A.J. Dillon playing poorly, adding a back like Gibson who can also catch the football would help take the pressure off the latter. Dillon has been highly unimpressive so far, as Packer fans thought he'd be able to take advantage of Jones' absence. But, that hasn't been the case.
