The Rams are coming off an exhilarating win towards Las Vegas in an ending that got here straight out of a Hollywood script. Baker Mayfield had simply flown into LA and was in a position to orchestrate a game-winning drive to elevate the Rams to a 17-16 victory. Mayfield has had a bit extra time to arrange for his sport and wanted each little bit of that point. The Packers are third in passing yards allowed per sport and are prime half within the league in passing touchdowns allowed per sport.
The Packers had loads of storylines all through the earlier offseason and can have loads once more after a disappointing 2022 season.

The Packers final missed the playoffs in 2018 and solely twice within the final decade. After 4 seasons in a row throwing for greater than 4,000 yards, Aaron Rodgers has seen a pointy decline. With 2,864 yards and 22 touchdowns on the 12 months, Rodgers has not had the MVP-like success that everybody is accustomed to in Inexperienced Bay. Whereas there was sure to be some regression with out Devante Adams, there could also be a little bit of hope. Christian Watson has stepped up over the previous month. With seven touchdowns within the final 4 video games, the connection appears to be trending in the fitting course to construct some momentum for subsequent season.
