Green Bay Packers (5-2)

Week 7 Top Performers:

  • Aaron Rodgers: 255 yards and three touchdowns
  • Eddie Lacy: 63 yards and a touchdown
  • Randall Cobb: 121 yards and a touchdown

Factors to consider:  

  • Coming off a dominating week 7 win at home against the Carolina Panthers (38-17)
  • Playing on the road, weather not a factor as they play at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome
  • Green Bay needs a win this week and a Lions loss to move to first place in the NFC North
  • Packers are on a four game winning streak, looking to continue this hot streak on the road to improve their record to six wins.

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Packers offense is much more effective in the passing game then in their struggling rush offense.
  • Packer’s running backs, Eddie Lacy and James Starks, continue to struggle
  • Going up against a weak Saints pass defense ranked 28th in passing yards allowed (270.5 YPG)
  • Expect Aaron Rodger to be involved a lot in the passing game; Rodger to throw for over 300 yards with 3 TDs
  • Wide Receiver, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson, will be Rodgers favorite targets throughout the entire game. 

Defensive Expectations:

  • Biggest Challenge: Preventing Drew Brees to get his rhythm with his offense
  • Packers defense face the #2 offense in the NFL (437 YPG), mostly coming from the passing offense (ranked #2 with 314 YPG)
  • Packers ranked 6th in pass defense; expect them to give Drew Brees and his offense a tough time.
  • Packers rush defense ranked 31st, though Saints suffers with many injuries in the running back position.


New Orleans Saints (2-4)

Week 7 Top Performers:

  • Drew Brees: 342 yards and two touchdowns
  • Marques Colston : 111 yards
  • Kenny Stills: 103 yards and a touchdown

Factors to consider:  

  • Saint suffered a tough loss in their week 7 matchup against the Detroit Lions (23-24)
  • Although they have a 2-4 record, they are only one game back from first place in the NFC South and therefore still have postseason hopes.
  • Saints are in a must win situation
  • Playing with home field advantage

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Drew Brees and his offense are ranked #2 in total offense (437 YPG)
  • Saints offense up against the 6th pass defense in the NFL, though 31st in rush defense
  • Expect Khiry Robinson to get lots of carries considering the Packers low rush defense ranking
  • Expect Drew Bree to throw well over 300 yards and 2 TDs, regardless of the high ranked pass defense

Defensive Expectations:

  • The Saints have a very weak passing defense as they are ranked 28th in the NFL in yards allowed
  • Expect them to struggle against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense
  • Their biggest challenges would have to be stopping Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson
  • Stopping the struggling RB Eddie Lacy should not be a problem as they are ranked 11th in rushing yard allowed (103.2 YPG).
