Looking into the Green Bay Packers 2018 season, how many games are they going to win and will they make the NFL playoffs?
No one doubts Aaron Rodgers ability to lead the Green Bay Packers into the postseason if he’s healthy. But it’s not just him you have to worry about being healthy. The offensive line last season suffered several key injuries as well. If you can’t protect your quarterback, well, you end up looking like the Cleveland Browns.
The Packers also have the TOUGHEST strength of schedule in the NFL based off last seasons finishes for all teams. I usually take that with a grain of salt when it comes to the NFL because there is so much that happens in the offseason that it might not even matter for most teams.
In this case, as most of last season showed, without Rodgers, or if he has an off game, the defense can’t help this team win. Rodgers will need help from his defense this year more than ever.
The Packers kick off the season by facing a few division rivals. They play the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings at home to open the season back to back, followed by the Detroit Lions in Week 5. Let’s take a look at their whole schedule and predict how their season will go.
