These three members of the Green Bay Packers are most vulnerable in their Divisional Round playoff matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
We are getting closer to the Green Bay Packers Divisional Round playoff matchup against the Los Angeles Rams and the excitement surrounding the Pack is palpable. They have their best opportunity to get back to the Super Bowl since their 15-1 campaign in 2011. However, that doesn’t mean their path will be easy.
It begins with a juicy matchup against the Rams on Saturday, a team that is fully capable of defeating Green Bay and ending their Super Bowl hopes before they even really begin. In order for the Packers to avoid an upset, here are three players they must be extra cautious of as they are the most vulnerable.
3. Christian Kirksey
Christian Kirksey has quietly been getting phased out of the Packers’ defensive plans over the last month or so of the season. As the no. 2 inside linebacker (behind Krys Barnes), he still gets plenty of game action and is asked to do a lot in both the passing and running games. He’ll certainly be targeted in both phases on Saturday, as Cam Akers tries to follow up his dominant Wild Card performance with another strong game. Will Kirksey come ready to play?
