NFL Preview

Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers hunting for another win

Without a doubt, the Packers will head into Gameweek 15 brimming with confidence. They are without a loss in their last four league outings and will look to extend that winning run against an inconsistent Panthers outfit on Saturday night.

The Lambeau Field is one of Aaron Rodgers’ favourite hunting grounds. However, the veteran QB will have to make do without TE Jace Sternberger who is ruled out of this game due to a concussion. WR Malik Taylor will also be a gameday decision as he is currently dealing with a hamstring niggle.

Carolina Panthers sweating on the fitness of Christian McCaffrey

It’s been a difficult season for Matt Rhule-led Carolina Panthers. After losing star running back Christian McCaffrey for most of the 2020 NFL season, the Panthers will once again be without their talisman on Saturday night. He is currently dealing with a thigh injury and will not be risked by coach Matt Rhule against the Packers.

Teddy Bridgewater will lead the team once again with RB Mike Davis at his disposal. He will also rely on offensive support from wide receivers Curtis Samuel, Robby Anderson and Pharoh Cooper. However, the Panthers defense led by Jeremy Chinn will be the deciding factor tonight.

Make no mistake, this Saturday night game at Lambeau Field is something that veteran NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers was born to feature in. The recently-turned 37-year old is on fire this season as he continues to push for a third possible NFL MVP award. With WR Davante Adams also in inspired form, this should be yet another win for Matt LaFleur’s dominant Packers outfit.
