4. Green Bay Packers (4)
Do the Green Bay Packers have what it takes to make a push for the top seed in the NFC?
With the team currently sitting at 8-2, the Packers will be in great position to make another key statement when they return from the bye week with what is expected to be a tough battle against the San Francisco 49ers.
Depending on how things end up, there’s a good chance this could end up being an early playoff preview in the NFC come January, which football fans wouldn’t mind seeing one bit.
After missing out on the playoffs in the previous two seasons, there were plenty of questions surrounding the Packers over whether Matt LaFleur was the right hire as the new head coach in Green Bay.
But with Aaron Rodgers playing on a MVP level along with the Packers sitting on top of the NFC North at the moment, no one seems to be questioning the decision anymore.
Defeating the 49ers on the road will be quite challenging for the Packers, but these are the kind of games that Rodgers loves to be part of since the future Hall of Famer is one of the most competition quarterbacks across the league.
