Packers Combine for Over 125 Rushing Yards
AJ Dillon has been, let’s say, less than electrifying in the early stages of his fourth year in the league, to put it mildly. With just 74 yards on 28 carries, he’s not exactly tearing up the turf, hovering at a sluggish 2.6 yards per carry, a stat that finds him languishing at 51st place in the NFL rankings. To make matters even more concerning, it’s highly likely tha Jones will be on some sort of pitch count upon his predicted return.
The good news is there’s a ray of sunshine breaking through the overcast skies. As it turns out, the Saints are not exactly the brick wall of defense when it comes to stopping the run. In fact, they’ve been rather charitable, allowing a generous 5 yards per rush, and residing at the not-so-proud 28th spot in the NFL rankings in that department.
So, here’s the script for the Packers: exploit this tantalizing matchup against a Saints defense that’s been struggling to plug the run. The offensive line will dig deep and work their magic upfront, opening up some lanes. With that, Green Bay is looking to take advantage and notch up a combined rushing total of at least 125 yards in this one. Get ready for a ground-and-pound spectacle.
