Packers at Broncos (Week 7)

After a bye, the Green Bay Packers travel to the Mile High City to face off against the hapless Denver Broncos. Russell Wilson's only victory this season was against the Chicago Bears.

The Broncos are a disaster. Denver has allowed 150 points this season - the most in the NFL. Granted, 70 came against the Miami Dolphins a couple weeks ago, but even if you cut that number in half, only the Bears would've allowed more points this season.

This is a golden opportunity for the Green Bay Packers to rack up a road win. While playing in Denver presents its challenges, and Broncos head coach Sean Payton will surely have his offense ready to score some points, the Packers can score as well.

Prediction: Packers 35, Broncos 25 (4-2)

Packers vs Vikings (Week 8)

The Minnesota Vikings played the winless Carolina Panthers on the road this past Sunday and still only escaped with an eight-point victory. At 1-3, Minnesota is surely disappointed with their lackadaisical start to the 2023 season.

But the Vikings have been in every game. After seemingly being able to win every one-score game in 2022, this season has been the exact opposite. But don't doubt the ability to Kirk Cousins, Jordan Addison, and Justin Jefferson.

The Minnesota Vikings facet the gauntlet of the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in two of the next three weeks. There's a chance that Minnesota could arrive in Green Bay sitting at 2-5 and in desperation of needing a win. Will the Vikings have already given up? Don't count on it.

Prediction: Packers 21, Vikings 24 (4-3)
