3. Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have won four games, and have defeated one good opponent by overcoming the Saints. But they, much like the Seattle Seahawks have a very impressive offense that is powered by a rejuvenated Aaron Rodgers. The defense is suspect and will be until they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in two weeks

2020 Summary

After four games, the Packers enter an early bye week. Aaron Rodgers is once more deadly accurate with 13 touchdowns and no interceptions.  RB Aaron Jones has rushed for 374 yards and four touchdowns on the ground, ensuring that defenses cannot focus upon stopping the Packers passing attack. Best of all, Rodgers is doing it all with virtually unrecognizable receivers.

2020 Outlook

The Packers have found a defensive star in linebacker Za’Darius Smith. After 13.5 sacks in 2019, he is already at five quarterback sacks for the Packers after four games. That’s a big plus for a team that has needed some defensive oomph to help the team balance out a solid offense.  With their current schedule, the Packers are facing only six teams capable of defeating them. That means they are clearly one of the NFC favorites for the top seed.

49. . 4-0. Previous: 9th. Green Bay Packers. 3. team

The only real obstacle is the better than advertised Chicago Bears team. If the Packers win one or both of those games, they are in great shape this season.
