Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers
The problem for the Green Bay Packers might be the transitive property.
The New Orleans Saints destroyed the Packers 38-3 in Week 1. The Carolina Panthers then blew out the Saints 26-7 in Week 2. So what does that say about the Packers? It's not like the Saints are some instant juggernaut.
We'll see on Monday night. The Packers are 11.5-point favorites over the Detroit Lions at BetMGM. If the Packers struggle and don't cover against the Lions? There will be plenty of hard questions. And look out if they somehow lose.
The easy narrative is that the Packers' offseason drama, which centered around Aaron Rodgers, has a hangover effect. Perhaps that's fair. It's hard to believe a team that went 13-3 each of the past two seasons with trips to the last two NFC championship games became bad at football over the offseason. It's also just a one-game sample. Plenty of teams that were horrible in Week 1 played much, much better in Week 2. Urgency matters and nobody wants to go 0-2.
The Packers are going to look better in Week 2. It's never fun to take double-digit NFL favorites, but the Packers might be ready to beat someone up after Week 1. And it's not like the Lions are very good. The Packers seem to be the right side. And we'll have plenty of skepticism going forward about the Packers if they don't look a lot better.
