Last season, NFL fans around the world saw the Packers almost make it to the Super Bowl. Having a lead of 19-7 with less than 5 minutes remaining in the championship game of the NFC, Green Bay was beaten by Seattle 28-22, with the Seahawks making it to the big game for a second season in a row, but pay per head software services believe that this time around, the Packers won’t let the Lombardi Trophy off their sights for a second.
QB Aaron Rodgers was named MVP in the NFL last season after he threw for 4,381 yards with 38 TD’s and only 5 picks, and this season his whole offense will return unchanged. All of the 5 offensive starting linemen (last year they started in 17 out of 18 meetings) are back for a running game that features RB Eddie Lacy, who during his first couple of seasons was able to rush for 1,000 yards.
WR Jordy Nelson will also return to action after the player broke the Packers’ record of 1,519 receiving yards recorded in a season. Nelson will play alongside WR Randall Cobb, giving the Packers what could be one of the biggest threats when it comes to receivers. With an offense this dangerous, many sportsbooks consider Green Bay to be the favorites to win the Super Bowl, at +600. They also got +325 to be the NFC Conference winners, as well as -300 to win the NFC North over the Lions, Vikings and Bears. The team seriously drafted on their defense in an effort to do better in that department.
Green Bay got last place in rushing defense, but DC Dom Capers and Mike McCarthy, the team’s head coach, turned things around when they made the decision that OLB Clay Matthews should move to the inside. The Packers got the services of OLB Jake Ryan to help out in the running game. Green Bay also got Arizona State’s CB Damarious Randall during the first round.
The last time that the Packers competed for a Super Bowl was in in 2010 – beating the Steelers – and pay per head software services saw them win the NFC North every single year since that win. Having the best scoring offense in the NFL back in action, the chances are high that the Packers will clinch one more title in the division, and move on to the league’s postseason for what would be their 7th consecutive year. For Green Bay, the total of regular season wins are at 11 over (-125).
