The Packers will be without Charles Woodson, Greg Jennings, Nick Perry, Sam Shields and John Kuhn. Jordy Nelson is also a game-time decision so it is a realistic possibility the Packers have only one healthy inactive player today. Let’s get to today’s points!
1. Jermichael Finley:
- Time to prove the Packers didn’t make a mistake by resigning you Jermichael. I have always backed the guy because I know the talent that he has but he is still struggling with dropping easy passes. With no Jennings and possibly no Jordy, time for Jermichael to have his breakout game. If you do I will bust out the fin celebration in my living room!
2. No huddle offense:
- The Jaguars are a joke. MJD is out for them and there is no one left on this offense that should put fear into anyone on the Packers sideline. So instead of getting complacent bust out the no-huddle offense early and go for the kill shot. I predicted the Packers to win 34-13 but this offense is capable of putting up over 40 points today. The Jaguars are 24th against the pass and 29th against the run.
- The Jaguars have given up 18 sacks through six games this season. Green Bay has 24 sacks through seven games which is close to equaling the 29 sacks they posted in all 16 games last season. The play of rookies Nick Perry, Jerel Worthy and Mike Daniels have provided a boost to the pass rush. Because of these three, Clay Matthews has seen some favorable match-ups which has allowed him to rack up 9 sacks this season, best on the team and second in the NFL.
This game should be over before halftime is even reached. While the Pack do have a long list of key players injured, their depth has stepped up so far this season and Aaron Rodgers is playing so out of his mind, I don’t think it matters who he is throwing to. Pack get their third straight win of the season today 34-13.
