Packers Week 12 Predictions
4. Aaron Rodgers’ toe will still be bothering him
Aaron Rodgers is reportedly still dealing with his toe injury. This is going to cause him to have a below-average game for the Packers and it’s going to make it extremely difficult for them to win. If there’s one person who can make plays with an injury, it’s Aaron Rodgers, but this time it’s going to be different.
The Rams feature one of the best defenses in the NFL and with Rodgers injured that’s going to cause some issues. Rodgers isn’t going to have a bad game by any means. He will still be able to put up over 200 yards and help drive the ball down the field for the Packers. He just isn’t going to do the crazy Aaron Rodgers stuff that the world is used to seeing with having 300-plus passing yards with two or more touchdowns.
3. Defense continues to step up
The defense has stepped up a few times this season and they’re going to need to do the same thing on Sunday. Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, and others are just some of the few pieces that the elite Rams offense has. If the Packers want to win this game they’re going to need the defense to win it for them. This is going to be a tough task but they have done some crazy things this season.
If they want to win a Super Bowl they’re going to need to get stops against elite offenses like they are going up against on Sunday. They’re going to find a way to get it done and only give up 21 points in this game.
2. Green Bay sneaks away with a late-game touchdown
We’re going to see vintage Aaron Rodgers with two minutes left in the 4th quarter. The Rams will have somewhere between a 3-6 point lead and Aaron Rodgers is going to march down the field in less than a minute and a half and be able to put up seven points for the Packers to get the win.
1. Aaron Jones plays and goes off
There have been some questions throughout the week if Aaron Jones is going to play for the Packers on Sunday. It still isn’t 100% but if he does play he’s going to carry this Green Bay team to a tough victory.
Aaron Rodgers is still dealing with his toe issue. The Green Bay offense is going to have to turn to Aaron Jones to make plays. Expect Jones to have a 100-yard rushing game with two touchdowns.
He has shown throughout his career that he is more than capable of running an offense. Because of Aaron Rodgers’s injury, he’s going to have to do exactly that on Sunday.
