Here are five bold predictions about what the upcoming Divisional Round holds for the Green Bay Packers on their potential path to a Super Bowl.
Thanks to an extended playoff field, the NFL Divisional round will feature only two of the eight teams who had a bye last week. Fortunately, one of those teams is the Green Bay Packers, who were resting and recalibrating during their off week.
With Green Bay kicking off the Divisional Round on Saturday when they host the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field, it’s certain to be a weekend full of entertaining and dramatic football. So, without further ado, let’s make five bold predictions about how Saturday and Sunday will play out.
5. COVID-19 stays under wraps
The Packers had a scare on Wednesday when newcomer Jared Veldheer tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, nobody else was deemed to be a close contact, but now we must wait to see if they have any further positive tests. They’ve been extremely fortunate this year to avoid COVID, and that luck should continue into the Divisional Round.
