Packers vs. Vikings Week 12 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 12: Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 6-4 Green Bay Packers 24-13
As bad as the Packers are right now, the Vikings are worse.  Green Bay gets enough out of Tolzien as Lacy carries the team. The Packers win to stay in the thick of the NFC North race.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 5-5 Green Bay Packers 23-17
Three weeks in a row I’ve picked the Packers without really believing in my pick – trying the reverse psychology method, I suppose. This week, I figured, why change? I’m letting it roll with the Packers. Very scientific, I know…
Adam Czech 8-2 Green Bay Packers 24-20
The Packers might be bad, but not as bad as the Vikings.
Marques Eversoll 7-3 Green Bay Packers 23-17
If the offensive line can keep pressure off Scott Tolzien, he’ll be able to exploit a vulnerable Vikings secondary and put up more than enough points. The first time these teams squared off, Aaron Rodgers threw threw perfect touchdown balls. Tolzien isn’t Rodgers, but I think he’s got a big day in store. I’m saying 250+ yards, two touchdowns and–most importantly–no turnovers.
Thomas Hobbes 5-5 Green Bay Packers 17-10
This is perhaps the most winnable game the Packers have without Rodgers; Adrian Peterson body looks to finally be breaking down and Greg Jennings might not suit up either.  Add to that Ponder is likely still recovering from dislocating his shoulder and this team is maybe as beat up in key spots as the Packers.
Cory Jennerjohn 8-2 Green Bay Packers 23-13
Don’t expect a lot of highlight-reel plays from this one. The Packers only need to corral a hobbled Adrian Peterson (groin) and allow Christian Ponder to fail. Look for the secondary to take chances at the line of scrimmage — which could mean another big game from Tramon Williams. Scott Tolzien must recognize pressure from a stout front four to pick on a very weak Vikings’ secondary.

Packers vs. Giants Week 11 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 11: Green Bay Packers vs. New York Giants
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 5-4 New York Giants 27-23
The play of Scott Tolzien last week gave fans some hope but another soiling of the bed by the defense shows how much trouble the Packers are still in until Aaron Rodgers returns. The Giants are hot and the Packers are in a tailspin. The defense lets everyone down again as Green Bay loses its third straight.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 5-4 Green Bay Packers 24-14
When Mike McCarthy gets that look in his eye in a post-loss press conference, things usually improve the following week. While the Giants have won three in a row, they have not impressed me at all. Here’s hoping the Packers’ defense shows up this week.
Adam Czech 7-2 New York Giants 22-17
Eli Manning isn’t that great of a quarterback, but like the rest of the team, he’s really lucky. After starting 0-6, the Giants have feasted on a lame-duck Josh Freeman, Matt Barkley and an injured Terrelle Pryor to win three straight. On Sunday, they get the Packers’ third-string QB and will get just enough lucky bounces to win their fourth in a row and send the Packers to their third-straight defeat.
Marques Eversoll 6-3 New York Giants 20-16
While I think the Packers’ defense will step up and force a couple turnovers, the Giants’ defense has been phenomenal the past few weeks. They’ve allowed a total of 13 points in three games, and now they get Scott Tolzien at home. Consider me skeptical.
Thomas Hobbes 5-4 Green Bay Packers 20-17
I said it last week and I guess I have to say it again, the Packers offense will be a lot better when their quarterback has had a week to prepare as the starter.  Considering Tolzein was given an open playbook against the Eagles, I’d expect to see an even more balanced and less predictable offense this week.  As for defense, everyone has to be feeling the heat to perform and hopefully that helps, but what definitely will help is Clay Matthews not having a bowling ball for a hand.

Packers vs. Eagles Week 10 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 10: Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 4-4 Philadelphia Eagles 28-14
Until proven otherwise, consider this a vote of no confidence in Seneca Wallace. I’d love to be wrong but things didn’t look too encouraging Monday night. Also, Dom Capers tends to struggle facing a new and unusual offensive scheme for the first time (see Colin Kaepernick in the playoffs). Packer Nation gets closer to the end of a bridge as the Packers lose their second straight.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 5-3 Green Bay Packers 23-20
I’m not sure how, but I think the Packers find a way to gain a home win that is desperately needed. Hopefully a clubbed CM3 is Pack and leads a spirited turnover-causing effort from the defense.
Adam Czech 6-2 Philadelphia Eagles 30-17
You know how the Packers have those games where they’re kind of plodding along, not necessarily playing poorly but not putting their opponent away, either? Then Aaron Rodgers makes a few amazing plays, the Packers pull away, and we’re all happy. Well, the Packers will plod along on Sunday, only Rodgers won’t be around to save the day.
Marques Eversoll 6-2 Green Bay Packers 23-20
The run game will carry the offense, Seneca Wallace will play better and the defense will step up. Most importantly, they’ll come up with some key takeaways that they’ve been lacking so far this season. It may not be pretty, but a win is a win. And I’m about 52% sure that’s what it will be.
Thomas Hobbes 5-3 Green Bay Packers 20-13
Expect a lot more open offense for Seneca Wallace and the Packers; last time Rodgers was hurt, Flynn was on a short leash against the Lions as well only to see the the playbook open up for the Patriots.  A steady does of Eddie Lacy and consistent defense will make this game winnable for the Packers.
Cory Jennerjohn 6-2 Philadelphia Eagles 27-17
Last week the deficiencies of Seneca Wallace displayed themselves. An average arm which makes him vulnerable to most throws. The Eagles come to Lambeau flying high after erupting for 49 points last week. Even with the return of Clay Matthews, the Packers will not have an answer for LeSean McCoy, will get behind early and with a backup quarterback starting, that’s not a good equation.

Packers vs. Bears Week 9 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 9: Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 4-3 Green Bay Packers 27-14
No Jay Cutler, but the Packers will still need to account for Brandon Marshall. The Bears defense, meanwhile, is in shambles and will struggled containing the Packers’ balanced attack.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 5-2 Green Bay Packers 27-17
The Bears’ injuries trump the Packers’ injuries – what I had previously believed would be a dead-even game turns into a fairly comfortable win for Green Bay.
Adam Czech 6-1 Green Bay Packers 31-17
Keep taking away weapons from Aaron Rodgers and he keeps getting better. Will he keep it up against the Bears? I think so, and it will lead to another divisional win for the Packers.
Marques Eversoll 6-1 Green Bay Packers 34-13
This isn’t an Urlacher-in-his-prime kind of Bears defense. Chicago’s secondary is solid, but the front seven is weak, which means Eddie Lacy is in store for a really big day. The Packers won’t overlook the Cutler-less Bears, and when it’s all said and done, this will be another relatively easy divisional win for the Packers in primetime.
Thomas Hobbes 5-2 Green Bay Packers 27-16
No Jay Cutler and no Lance Briggs can only be a good thing, but with two weeks to install some unscouted looks and get Josh McCown ready and I don’t see this as a easy game.  However, if the Packers can be as methodical against the Bears as they were against the Vikings last week and I don’t think the Bears can keep trading punches with the Packers.
Cory Jennerjohn 6-1 Green Bay Packers 35-13
Chicago’s lynchpins on offense and defense — Jay Cutler and Lance Briggs — will be missed severely. Two weeks ago, the Bears allowed 209 yards rushing to Washington, so expect Eddie Lacy to punish the Chicago defense with his physical style. Aaron Rodgers has proven that it doesn’t matter who the receivers are, he’s still going to put up big numbers.

Packers vs. Vikings Week 8 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 8: Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 3-3 Green Bay Packers 28-17
Adrian Peterson will still have a solid game, but he is going to learn this is not the 2012 Packers defense. Jared Allen is the lone bright spot on an otherwise woeful defense and will challenge David Bakhtiari.  Still, the Vikings are terrible and Green Bay wins this one pretty easily.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 4-2 Green Bay Packers 33-19
If Christian Ponder starts, I think this game will be a little closer than expected. Not that I’m impressed at all, but Ponder has had some success against Green Bay, he’s playing for his job, and the games are always closer in the Metrodome. 
Adam Czech 5-1 Green Bay Packers 27-24
This game is going to be closer than people think. I know, I know. It’s the Queens, and they’re even more of a mess than usual right now, but you don’t lose the caliber of players that the Packers have lost and just waltz into the Metrodome and cruise to an easy win. Adrian Peterson will want to show that he’s still the best RB in the league after a slow last couple of weeks. Christian Ponder will want to show that he deserves his starting job back. Leslie Frazier is coaching for his job. The Packers will win, but expect a battle.
Marques Eversoll 5-1 Green Bay Packers 23-17
Fortunately for the WR-thin Packers, Minnesota’s secondary is atrocious. If the Packers’ offensive line can keep Aaron Rodgers upright, they should have no problem outscoring the Vikings. Ultimately, it’s too much Eddie Lacy, too much Jordy Nelson and too many points for the Vikings to match. However, I do think it’ll be closer than many are expecting. If I were a gambling man, I’d take the Vikings with the points (+9).
Thomas Hobbes 4-2 Green Bay Packers 27-13
I think the biggest concern for the Packers is how well their newbie outside linebackers handle Adrian Peterson, both Mulumba and Palmer graded out negatively against the run last game as both overran running backs trying to get to the quarterback; if they can keep in line with a strong defensive line I think they can hold Peterson to manageable gains.  On offense, Aaron Rodgers will have to continue to make something out of nothing while Eddie Lacy churns out yards

Packers vs. Browns Week 7 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 7: Green Bay Packers vs. Cleveland Browns
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 2-3 Green Bay Packers 31-14
Everyone is thinking the Packers will struggle with the pass thanks to injuries at receiver, but I think this is the game he erupts. Look for 350 yards from Rodgers and 125 from Lacy as Green Bay rolls.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 3-2 Green Bay Packers 23-13
Defense comes up big in this game, causing turnovers and helping out the Packers receivers-challenged offense with great field position. Crosby will be called upon again to make 2-3 field goals.
Adam Czech 4-1 Green Bay Packers 27-17
Who’s ready for a 5 WR set featuring Jordy Nelson, Jermichael Finley, Jarrett Boykin, Myles White and Jake Stoneburner? *crickets* Nobody? Oh well. We might not see a spread formation featuring Jordy, Jermichael and a bunch of guys we never heard of, but that doesn’t mean the Packers offense will go in the tank. They’ll have to work for it, but they’ll put up some points and back up another nice defensive performance for a shorthanded win.
Marques Eversoll 4-1 Green Bay Packers 24-13
Despite being without Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, I think the Green Bay defense will force Brandon Weeden into a couple turnovers. Offensively, I’d be surprised if James Jones can play, but I think they’ll put enough points because of two things: Eddie and Lacy. Packers win.
Thomas Hobbes 3-2 Green Bay Packers 21-10
This will be an interesting game to see how the Packers adapt to losing so many players last week; luckily Cleveland isn’t a powerhouse team and the Packers can make a couple mistakes without costing them the game.  Figure to see a more balanced offense as the McCarthy adapts to losing Cobb and potentially Jones while Capers likely dials up more exotic blitzes to account for losing Perry and Matthews.

Packers vs. Ravens Week 6 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 6: Green Bay Packers vs. Baltimore Ravens
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 1-3 Green Bay Packers 31-27
It will be another “grind it out” win for Green Bay, but the Packers prevail based on two things about Baltimore that are becoming clear: Joe Flacco is very much overpaid and they miss Ray Lewis.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 2-2 Green Bay Packers 24-16
The Packers will travel to Baltimore and pick up a tough road win as the defense stiffens when it needs to and the offense continues to explore it’s new-found balance of run and pass. 
Adam Czech 3-1 Green Bay Packers 30-26
Aaron Rodgers and his three WRs make up for a defense playing without Clay Matthews. At times it won’t be pretty, and the Ravens will move the ball, but the Packers grind out just a few more plays than Baltimore and prevail.
Marques Eversoll 3-1 Green Bay Packers 28-27
The Packers haven’t won on the road since Dec. 16, 2012 in Chicago. Yeah, that’s only four games. But still, it’s four games. To me, this is the definition of a toss-up. Before the season, I had the Ravens in this one. And now, (without Matthews) I’m picking the Packers. Makes sense, huh?
Thomas Hobbes 2-2 Green Bay Packers 35-24
Baltimore is wildly inconsistent; they still have the capacity to be the team that won the Super Bowl last year or they can be the team that got steam rolled by the Broncos just 6 months later.  While the Packers haven’t been all that consistent either, a balanced offense and consistent defense will help the Packers win this game.
Cory Jennerjohn 3-1 Green Bay Packers 24-13
I know Joe Flacco got himself a Super Bowl win last season, but I still don’t respect him as a passer. Added to that is Ray Rice’s bad hip and the Ravens will need to get creative just to keep drives alive. Look for Jermichael Finley to get behind a collection of linebackers that is very good at rushing the passer but poor at pass coverage.
Jason Perone 4-0 Baltimore Ravens 24-21
