Let’s be realistic about the Packers here for a second. They’re great, but they aren’t the best team in the NFL. They do play the superior conference, and they are absolutely the superior of these two teams. However, they aren’t going to win this one more often than not by more than two touchdowns. QB Blaine Gabbert is going to play for the Jags, and though this is still one of the worst passing games that the league has to offer, as we saw last week, the former Missouri Tiger is a whole heck of a lot better than any of the stiffs like QB Chad Henne that Jacksonville could trot out there instead. The defense has been good enough to beat a lot of teams this year, and this might not be an exception. In truth, this is an NFL point spread that should be hanging around 9 or so, not above 14. Jacksonville isn’t the worst team in the league, and the way that its team is setup, it might be able to hang if it can control QB Aaron Rodgers.
Jaguars @ Packers Pick: Jacksonville +14.5
Jacksonville @ Green Bay Score Prediction: Green Bay 24 – Jacksonville 13
