The Green Bay Packers finished the 2021 season with a 13-4 record, which was tied for the best record in the league and the top spot in the NFC North standings. But they couldn’t take advantage of their home field advantage and lost to the San Francisco 49ets in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
Green Bay averaged 26.5 points per game last season, which was good for 10th in the league. They gave up 21.8 points per game, which was 19th in the league.
Aaron Rodgers completed 68.9 percent of his passes for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns. And four interceptions, which led to his second consecutive league MVP win. AJ Dillon led the team with 803 rushing yards and five touchdowns. While Davante Adams led the team with 1,553 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns.
With Adams leaving for Las Vegas in the offseason, Allen Lazard. Who had 513 yards and eight touchdowns last season, will be their top receiver. The Packers also drafted Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs to give them more depth at the position.
The Packers focused on improving their defense in the offseason, using their two first round draft picks on defensive players. They lost Za’Darius Smith and Whitney Mercilus, but the additions of Kingsley Enagbare. Kobe Jones, and Chauncey Manac makes them a little better. With All-Pro tackle David Bakhtiari missing all but one game last season while recovering from a torn ACL. The Packers added some depth selecting three offensive linemen in the draft.
Green Bay has dominated the NFC North since they drafted Rodgers and despite the loss of Adams. They won’t face a lot of competition in the division, and will finish on top of the standings once again.
Despite their recent playoff failures, oddsmakers still like their odds to lift the Green Bay Packers Season Preview, with their Super Bowl 2023 odds at +1500.
