Packers vs. Broncos key players to watch

Green Bay Packers

Jordan Love: The Packers quarterback has had a bit of an up and down season, but now he's coming off a bye week to face the worst secondary in the NFL. If there's ever a time for him to look like the quarterback of the future for this team, it's now.

Denver Broncos

Jaleel McLaughlin: The Broncos may have found something with Jaleel McLaughlin. He has averaged 6.6 yards per carry in his first 29 rushes with the Broncos and a solid running game may be enough to supplement this offense enough to make them a sustainable unit. If he can continue to produce at this level, he's going to me a key to the Denver offense moving forward.

Packers vs. Broncos prediction and pick

The Broncos' defense continues to be on a historically bad pace, which is keeping me from considering betting on them in this spot. Sure, they kept Patrick Mahomes in check last week when you look at the final score, but that was largely due to the Chiefs not being able to convert red zone trips to touchdowns. They still gained 5.6 yards per play against them.

The Broncos are in last place in the NFL in just about every single defensive metric you can look at, including opponent yards per play (6.7), opponent completion percentage (76.41%), and opponent points per game (33.3).

The Packers defense is good enough to shut down the Broncos offense, and then we just need to trust Jordan Love to be able to put up a strong performance against the worst defense in the league.

Give me the Packers to win and cover the 1-point spread.
