Green Bay Packers Analysis
The Packers are coming off a tough loss to the Los Angeles Rams and they will be trying to take their frustration out on the Patriots, who have won four consecutive games.
Aaron Rodgers continues to play well for the Packers, despite a knee injury he has been playing with since the first week of the season. He has completed 61.3 percent of his passes for 2,283 yards, 13 touchdowns, and one interception.
The running game continues to be a problem for the Packers, who average 104 rushing yards per game, but Aaron Jones played well in their last game, finishing with 86 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries.
Defense will be the key for the Packers in this game. They played well defensively for most of their game against the Rams but struggled down the stretch. If their defense can keep the Patriots under 30 points, the Packers will have a chance in this game.
Patriots Going For Fifth Consecutive Win
The Patriots have been playing very well over the last month, winning their last four contests. Their offense has played well during their recent run, averaging 39.2 points per game.
NFL Week 9 Picks
Tom Brady has completed 68 percent of his passes for 1,876 yards, 16 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. The Patriots have also done a great job moving the ball on the ground, averaging 120.9 rushing yards per game, which is 12th in the league.
Defense has been the biggest issue for the Patriots this season. The team gives up an average of 25.6 points per game, which is 20th in the league, but they have struggled in recent games, and are averaging 35.5 points against per game in their last two games.
If they don’t do a better job on the defensive end, Rodgers will pick their defense apart, which will make it difficult for the Patriots to get the win.
The Patriots are favored to win this game by six points. The over/under on the total points scored is not yet available.
The Patriots are playing well offensively but their defense is a major cause for concern against a Packers team that can go toe-to-toe offensively with any team. Take the Packers +6.
