Packers Patriots Game Preview

 

Detroit Lions v Green Bay Packers

Brady versus Rodgers let the mega powers collide. Okay, it’s a team game not Rodgers and Brady. But, that’s what sell tickets. The team that played last week will not win this game.  Especially, since our linebackers have to cover Gronk this week, and have to deal with Revis island.  What three things do we have to win this game.

  1. Running game- Lacy and Starks have to a great game. A good game will not win this  game.  McCarthy needs to attack the Patriot defense. Lacy has to pound them, and Starks needs to hang onto the ball and wear the Patriot defense out. Also, Lacy and Starks need to pass protect to win this game.
  2. Linebackers- Hawk had a terrible game last week. Kyle Rudolph the Vikings tight end owned Hawk. Also, the linebackers couldn’t stop the run against a third rate back. The Patriots will exploit the linebacking corp with short passes and draw plays. I know it sounds crazy but how about Peppers cover Gronk. Who knew Matthews would play inside linebacker?
  3. Turnovers- The Packers are towards the top in the league in turnovers. The Packers need to turnovers to win this game. On the flip side, we cannot turn over the ball. Rodgers has to make the right decisions. He has take what the Patriot defense give him. Brady has made his career out of it.

The Packers and Patriots are the best in the NFL. I am thinking the Packers pull this one out. Packers 27-23 Patriots.
