DD: Just about every week I feel confident in the Packers chances to win because they have No. 12 under center. It’s a bit strange to try and muster a prediction when the Packers will be without some of their key players. Having said that, I think the Eagles will come to Lambeau and win this one. The Packers just lack the firepower on offense without Rodgers to keep up with Eagles. The Packers defense has also given us plenty of reasons as of late to doubt they can completely shutdown high-powered passing attacks, like Philadelphia’s.

Green Bay may have a chance if they can get pressure, force some turnovers, and move the chains on offense. This seems like a tall order though, especially coming off a short week and trying to prepare for an uncommon opponent. Even if the Packers lose, I’ll feel encouraged if they keep it competitive and Wallace shows he can run the offense effectively. This week, I’m more looking for positive things the Packers can build off of moving forward without Rodgers. Maybe they’ll show us enough to feel good about their chances against the Giants and Vikings the following weeks.

Final Score: GB 24, PHL 34

I would just like to say thank you to Inside the Iggles and their staff for giving the opportunity to share my thoughts about this week’s Packers-Eagles matchup. I’m hoping for a good, competitive game this Sunday at Lambeau. It should be fun to watch. Go Packers!!!
