Coming off their third straight defeat the Green Bay Packers are faced with arguably the toughest matchup for any team in the NFL as they head to western New York to take on the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night football.
The Packers currently find themselves in an unprecedented set of circumstances under the Matt LaFleur era after losing three consecutive games and being under the 500 mark post week one (3-4).
Last time out in week seven the Packers struggled yet again to get anything going offensively at Washington scoring only two offensive touchdowns, one in the first and fourth quarter with a De’vondre Campbell pick 6 in between whilst having another defensive score wiped off due to illegal contact penalty in the process.
The Packers are also a double digit underdog for the first time in Aaron Rodgers’ 17 year career.
Meanwhile their opponents the Buffalo Bills have had a red hot start to the season at home scoring a combined 110 points while allowing 10 in their only two home games this season.
The key matchup to look out for will be how the Packers handle receiver Stefan Diggs who they know very well from his time with the Vikings.
Diggs’ offensive production has absolutely exploded since his trade to the Bills with the receiver already racking up 656 yards and six touchdowns in only his first six games of the season meaning covering him is going to be near impossible however we have seen Jaire Alexander come out on top in previous meetings.
Buffalo will also be well rested for this matchup as the team was on bye for week seven so no matter how you draw up all the numbers this is an incredibly difficult matchup.
Injury wise for the Packers Randall Cobb and Krys Barnes still remain on IR while Rashan Gary and David Bakhtiari are currently listed as questionable with a Head and Leg injury respectively.
As for the Bills they’ll be without former Packers safety Micah Hyde and receiver Jameison Crowder as both are on IR.
The Green Bay Packers have never won in Buffalo (0-6).
