2. Pressure Russell Wilson and force him to make mistakes

While the Packers need Jordan Love to have a better outing, they must also force Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson into the exact opposite type of performance. The good news for Green Bay is that this is very much a possibility.

Wilson is coming off his worst start of the year, a game that saw him complete just 13 of 22 pass attempts for 95 yards. The 34-year-old was intercepted twice and sacked four times in the loss to Kansas City. This was the second consecutive contest where the opposing defense brought Wilson down four times. Wilson struggled against the Jets, throwing for only 196 yards while completing just 20 of 31 attempts in a 31-21 loss.

Anyone who has watched Wilson knows how much his performance and box score numbers differ. There have been points this season where Wilson has looked to be the quarterback that his stat line indicates. With that in mind, it is not out of the realm of possibilities for Wilson to struggle again, as he has the past two weeks.

Green Bay needs to take as much as they can from the game plans utilized against him in his last two starts and replicate as much as possible. If the Packers can do that, Green Bay should be able to back Wilson into a corner that sees him struggle yet again.
