We made some bold predictions on our preview column, so let’s check the results:
Aaron Rodgers gets 300 yards
Psh, he had 400. Full credit.
Aaron Jones breaks off his longest run of the year
He didn’t even get a run half as long as his long. Against a line missing a stud and his backup? Pathetic.
Smith and Smith combine for fewer than 2 sacks
Shutout. Sad, but I saw it coming.
Davante Adams has his best game of the year
He had the best game of his life and if he stayed healthy, he might have broken the franchise record.
The Eagles rush for over 4 yards per carry
Yeah, they averaged a lot more than that.
Blake Martinez has a season high for tackles
Carson Wentz gets 0 passing TDs
Whoops. I beleived in the pass defense, but the run defense was so bad that it opened up the play action. Wentz only had 160 yards, but he had a couple point blank TDs and a swing pass that Howard housed. It wasn’t as bad as it looked, but still… Blutarsky.
Jaire Alexander has another statement play because he’s Jaire Alexander
He had a big one, but it was ruled down. Overall, he had some nice defensive plays to earn me partial credit.
Packers 31, Eagles 16
I felt the offense was ready to get moving, but I did not see the defense doing quite this poorly in the red zone.
Total Predictions: 9
Total Score: 6.2
Not good, but nice.
