Game Predictions: Packers at Saints

C.D. Angeli (@TundraVision): The prevailing wisdom seems to predicts some sort of wild and wolly shootout in the Superdome. Many are predicting a big Packer offensive score to outmatch Drew Brees and Co. While I predict a Packer victory, I have a hard time believing that the Packers can put together two massive offensive outputs two weeks in a row. Laws of averages, if nothing else...

The Packers are as Deep as They Have Ever Been at Running Back

What a difference a year makes.  At the end of the 2012 season, there were a lot of questions surrounding the Packers’ backfield.
