Last year was almost a tale of two seasons for the Packers. Green Bay excelled during the regular season, coasting to a No. 1 seed in the NFC and a second straight MVP for Aaron Rodgers. However, the playoffs were an entirely different story. Following their first-round bye, the Packers fell in demoralizing fashion to the 49ers in the Divisional Round. It was a crushing loss for a team that had aspirations of winning its first Super Bowl since 2011. 

With that loss, the offseason brought about changes. Most importantly, star wideout Davante Adams was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders. Adams had been a longtime target for Rodgers and the pairing had built a connection unlike most quarterback and receiver duos in football. However, even with the loss of Adams, the Packers are still favored in the NFC North this season. Can they get back to a Super Bowl for the first time in over a decade? Let’s get into our season preview for Green Bay.

Green Bay Packers 2021 season recap

The Packers 2021 regular season was something to behold. After a blowout loss to the Saints in Week 1, Green Bay excelled during the remainder of the season. Aaron Rodgers had one of his best seasons en route to a 13-4 record, No. 1 seed in the NFC and a second straight MVP award for the veteran QB. As we previously mentioned, however, the playoffs were an entirely different story. Following their first-round bye, the Packers ran into a confident 49ers team in the Divisional Round. It was there that Green Bay fell in demoralizing fashion at Lambeau Field, all while Rodgers struggled mightily under the spotlight. It was a deflating loss for a team that had aspirations of winning its first Super Bowl since 2011.

Green Bay Packers 2022 NFL season predictions

The Packers offense has work to do without the services of Davante Adams, who was easily one of the best wide receivers in football. However, I still have full confidence in Aaron Rodgers’ ability to perform at the highest level in the regular season. Drafting a couple of wideouts should help matters, and I do think the additions of Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs will help Rodgers stretch the field. Most importantly, the 2-headed monster of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon in the backfield should strike fear into the heart of opposing defenses. And speaking of defense, Green Bay should have a top 10 defensive unit in the league this fall, something that the Packers worked on in free agency and the draft. 

The schedule isn’t daunting either. I have the Packers losing games to the Vikings, Buccaneers, Bills, Eagles and Rams, with 4 of those 5 losses coming on the road. Outside of that, I expect that they’ll drop one more game between the Dolphins and Lions at the end of the season, as the NFC North may already be wrapped up. The division is not a challenging one, and as long as Rodgers is healthy, it’s tough to pick against Green Bay.

Best bet: Green Bay Packers over 4 division wins (-150)

For my best bet, I’ll be backing the Packers to finish with over 4 division wins at DraftKings. As I mentioned previously, it’s not going to be a banner year for the NFC North. I think the Vikings have a great shot at a Wild Card berth, but the Lions and Bears should pose no threat to Green Bay. I’m anticipating that the Packers will fall in Week 1 in Minnesota, but the rest of their division games fall favorably in their schedule. Green Bay should have no trouble sweeping the Bears and winning at home against Minnesota. From there, all the Packers need is to split the season series with the Lions to ensure we get at least a push. That should be no trouble for Rodgers and company. And if the Packers end up beating the Vikings to open the season, this should be a no-sweat cash. 

Green Bay Packers season record predictions

The Packers should continue their streak of being a strong regular season team. I have Green Bay finishing with a record of 11-6.
