Mired in Odell Beckham Jr. headlines and needing a win last week, they drew the undefeated Minnesota Vikings. After that prime-time defeat, a slumping offense must prepare to match Aaron Rodgers and the also undefeated Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.

Big Blue’s high-priced defense has taken a beating too as of late. They’ve cooled off after a strong start, but they’re also without their first-team secondary. Not only are injuries adding up, the defense is on the field too often. The offense has yet to play a turnover-free game this season and they’ve been hammered in time of possession, 34-26 on average, as a result.

There’s no time for finger pointing, though, not with Rodgers looming. Dual threat QBs are becoming more of a regular thing, but he may be the prototype. He has, arguably, the NFL’s best arm and runs when he wants to- not because of anything he lacks.
