Aaron Rodgers Confident That Green Bay Can Turn Season Around

Things aren’t looking all that great at Lambeau Field right now. Their overtime win over the New England Patriots left the Green Bay Packers at a healthy 3-1, but a succession of losses has seen Matt LaFleur’s side sink like a stone.

However, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers believes there’s no need to panic. So if you backed Green Bay with your NFL futures bet or plan to do so (then take a look at the odds comparison via sidelines.io), now might be the time to get your bet placed. A run of three defeats has seen The Green and Gold fall down to (+3000) for the Super Bowl.

Their run of defeats started in the NFL London game with the New York Giants, when they were edged out 22-27, and they then lost to the New York Jets 10-27 before once again coming up short, 21-23, against the Washington Commanders but Rodgers feels the worst is behind them.

“I’m not worried about this squad. In fact, this might be the best thing for us. This week, nobody’s going to give us a chance going to Buffalo on ‘Sunday Night Football’ with a chance to get exposed. Shoot, this might be the best thing for us.” Rodgers confidently stated.

Some have questioned Rodgers’ own performances, but LeFleur refused to be drawn in on such talk;

“I think it takes everybody. It takes everybody around him. You’ve got to have the protection in front of you to be able to hold up. You’ve got to have the guys making plays, too. I feel like we had a ton of drops. We had a lot of penalties that put us back behind the sticks.”

38-year-old Rodgers is, of course, coming back off two superb seasons where he picked up the NFL MVP on back-to-back occasions, and as such, it seems churlish to blame the former Super Bowl champion for any potential deficiencies in the Packers set-up.

The knives are certainly out for Rodgers, and his fellow veteran QB Tom Brady, both of whom are drawing a great deal of criticism for their form thus far this season. No doubt, both players are more than capable of defending themselves and their respective records, but it seems odd that their abilities are even being brought into question.

Last season, as mentioned, Rodgers was outstanding, and Brady put in his best-ever numbers, and it’s perhaps because of the consistency that both players have managed to maintain for so long that when anything goes slightly awry, it’s called into question and magnified by the press.

Such is how things are going at Green Bay: they will come up against the Bills as double-digit underdogs for the first time in Aaron Rodgers’ lengthy career. The Packers are 10.5 underdogs on the spread, and that’s down to his side’s poor form and also due to Buffalo being 5-1 and slaying all before them, most recently overcoming Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs 24-21.

So, could Rodgers be right? Can Green Bay win at the Highmark? Don’t bet against it.
