The Packers awful defense let them down last year. Did they do enough to improve this year? NFL Predictions 1.0

I like the Packers to win all of their home games, sweeping their division, but their road...

Packers Bits and Pieces

It was an exciting post-draft week for the Green Bay Packers and their fans. Firstly, the Pack had, by most accounts, a successful draft overall.
