3. Control the pace of the game early

If there is one area that the Green Bay Packers have notably struggled in this season, it is the first half. Green Bay cannot afford for this trend to continue if they are going to take down the Broncos on the road.

Even though the Broncos have been one of the most underwhelming teams in the entire league, Denver still has enough weapons on offense capable of putting up points on the scoreboard that can force just about any team to alter their approach to the game, making them play left-handed. This can make things difficult for a Packers offense that has disappointed early on in games.

If Green Bay is put in a position where they have to abandon their game plan early, it will make it much more difficult for them to come back. The Packers need a proper balance between the run and the pass to be effective this Sunday.

If they are forced to play from behind (left-handed), they will be put in a position that will disproportionally put weight on one aspect of the offense that needs to be managed very carefully. Considering the recent struggles of Jordan Love, this is not something that would be in their best interest, at least for now.
