Packers vs Rams (Week 9)
The Los Angeles Rams have been a bit of an enigma this season. Sean McVay's group took down the Seattle Seahawks on the road in Week 1 and played a close game against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2, only to inexplicably lose to a hobbled Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.
Los Angeles has some winnable games on their schedule before their matchup against the Green Bay Packers, and this is a game that could have huge playoff implications down the road.
This is a game that Matt LaFleur and the Packers have to have. Going up against his former boss, LaFleur will have extra motivation to secure this victory at home. Los Angeles can still put up points, and Cooper Kupp may be back on the field for this game. But it won't be enough.
Prediction: Packers 24 Rams 23 (5-3)
Packers at Steelers (Week 10)
This one is a bit tricky because we don't yet know who the Pittsburgh Steelers are, at least on offense. On defense, you know that T.J. Watt is going to rush the passer, and at this rate, Matt LaFleur may be grabbing fans out of the front row at Lambeau Field to help fill in the gaps of the offensive line.
There aren't explosive playmakers on Pittsburgh's offense, so Joe Barry's defense should be able to put a cap on whatever the Steelers try to run. However, will Green Bay score enough points to win this game?
Going on the road to Pittsburgh is never an easy task, and we've already seen the Green Bay Packers lose a game (Atlanta Falcons) that they should have won. I think think falls into a similar category. Look for a surprising loss at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
