  • Last meeting: December 8, 2019 – Football Team 15 Packers 20

Overview

Everyone hit the panic button on Aaron Rodgers after the Week 1 38-3 beatdown by the Saints. Rodgers brushed it off like he always did and led Green Bay to five straight wins and a lead in the NFC North. Rodgers like usually bet his NFC foes the Chicago Bears. He only threw for 195 years, but two passing touchdowns and a late rushing touchdown got Green Bay the 24-14 win. Unfortunately, a couple of critical injuries have hit the Packers. Center Josh Myers and safety Darnell Savage have not participated in practice this week.

The 2020 NFC East winners do not look like they’ll be the first to repeat since the 2003-2004 Philadelphia Eagles. Last week, they allowed a struggling Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to have a bounce-back game with a 31-13 win. Antonio Gibson has a couple of good games this year, but the offense has been stale for the most part. The Washington defense that was supposed to have one of the best defensive lines in the league is struggling to keep offenses in check. Injuries are something to pay attention to for the Football Team. Antonio Gibson, Ricky Seals-Jones, Terry McLaurin have not practiced throughout the week. If any of them can’t suit up Sunday, it could be an issue.

Trends

  • Packers are 8-2 ATS in their L10  games
  • Packers are 12-5 ATS in their L17 at Lambeau Field
  • Football Team are 6-8-1 ATS in their L13 as underdogs

Bottom Line

Washington will have to deal with a top-tier quarterback for the second week in a row. They could not stop Patrick Mahomes in the air or Darrel Williams on the ground. Expect Rodgers to carve this defense and Aaron Jones to run through a defense that has not played up to its abilities. The Washington defense is allowing the most points per game (31.0). They also rank last in passing defense, allowing 309.5 yards through the air per game.

Green Bay has also played well on the defense this year. They are currently ranked sixth in the league in total yards per game. Washington couldn’t get any offense going against a Kansas City defense which is 28th in the league in total points. Packers have a great chance to make this a blowout.

Pick: Packers -7.5
