4. Week 8 at Los Angeles Rams
Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams is the first game after the Packers’ Week 7 bye and the first one that also begins a very daunting stretch for the Packers. During the next four games following this one, the Packers will play at New England, versus the Miami Dolphins, at the Seattle Seahawks and at the Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers will be lucky to claw out two wins during that stretch. That makes this Week 8 game a very important one. They are coming off their bye and have plenty of time to rest and gameplan for the improved Rams team.
Both teams have Super Bowl aspirations and this will be a heavy-weight battle, to say the least. Green Bay will hope their young corners have been baptized by fire at this point and are ready to step up to the plate for the second-half of the season. The Packers desperately need to make a statement and kick off this stretch with a victory.
