The Packers take their six-game winning streak to Arizona on Thursday night. Here are five bold predictions about Green Bay’s trip to the desert.
Green Bay is currently one of the hottest teams in the NFL after their decisive 24-10 victory over the Washington Football team on Sunday. The Packers suddenly have a six-game winning streak heading into their high-profile matchup at Arizona on Thursday Night Football.
Expect the mainstream media to bill this as a high-profile encounter between Aaron Rodgers and Kyler Murray, but the game will go much deeper than just the battle between the pair of star quarterbacks. Both teams have the offensive weapons required to put up a ton of points.
As such, expect a shootout in Arizona. This is a game that either team can win. The final victor will be determined by the outcome of the following five bold predictions.
5 predictions for the Packers and Cardinals on Thursday night
5. Rashan Gary will notch another sack
Gary continues to enjoy a breakout campaign on the edge for the Packers’ defense. He’ll come into this game with a lot of confidence after sacking Taylor Heinecke twice in the Washington game.
Heinecke has good mobility for a quarterback but Murray has elite wheels for the position. That will make it slightly harder for Gary to get home on the rush even when he defeats the Arizona tackle assigned to slow him down. That’s why Gary will just get one sack to his credit on Thursday. He’ll still be one of the most impactful defenders on the field for either team.
