NFL Power Rankings: Broncos stock falling badly into crucial Week 6
8. Green Bay Packers
The Packers have always been good with Aaron Rodgers. Even after Rodgers’ hectic offseason, he seemingly returned to Green Bay for one final season. After getting blown out in week 1, the Packers have rattled off 4 straight wins, and are sitting pretty in their division and NFC playoff race.
Their defense remains an issue, in fact, they’ve allowed more points than they’ve scored, but their high-powered offense led by Rodgers and Davante Adams can make up for the lack of defense.
The NFC has a lot of really good, complete teams, so I’m not sure I would take the Packers over teams like the Cardinals, Bucs, or Rams, but they’ll do what they normally do–win double-digit games, make the playoffs, win a game, and lose in the divisional or championship game round.
If that does indeed happen this year, I would think Aaron Rodgers formally requests a trade, and we’ll surely see the beginning of the Jordan Love era in Green Bay.
