The Green Bay Packers take on the Buffalo Bills on the road in Week 15 of the NFL season.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been arguably the best QB in the NFL this year, leading them to wins in 9 out of their last 10 games and putting them in the driver’s seat for the NFC North division title. WR Jordy Nelson can seemingly catch anything in his vicinity and RB Eddie Lacy, while not matching his incredible 2013 season, has helped to give the Packers balance on offense. On the defense, LB Clay Matthews has returned to being the dominant defender the team missed last season and leads the team with 5.5 sacks. While all of the Packers’ losses have come on the road, they have won 3 of their last 4 road games, so perhaps they aren’t as vulnerable there as other road-weary teams.
For the Buffalo Bills, a promising 2-0 start to the season has fallen into disarray after losing three of their last five games and falling to 7-6, putting them only a game or two away from playoff elimination and extending their playoff drought to 15 years. But all is not lost in Buffalo: even though the offense has struggled at times, the defense has been about as good as any other in football, holding QB Peyton Manning without a TD pass for the first time since 2010, and holding their two previous opponents to a combined 13 points. If there is a single team in the NFL that can slow down Aaron Rodgers’ offense, it could very well be Buffalo.
Prediction: Packers – As good as Buffalo’s defense is, better defenses have tried and failed to keep Aaron Rodgers out of the endzone. And even if Buffalo’s defense can prevent a blowout, their offense has been nothing special either – and only the special offenses have been able to make a dent in the Packers armor this year.
