It’s Packers vs Titans. A week after Andrew Luck vs. Aaron Rodgers we get Marcus Mariota vs. Aaron Rodgers as the veteran star QB takes on one of the league’s best young quarterbacks trying to make his mark on the league.
Prediction: Green Bay 31, Tennessee 28
Things have started to get very troublesome in Green Bay for the Packers and Aaron Rodgers as they have dropped three of their past four, with their only win coming against the struggling Bears. The Packers will try to get on the right track on the road against Marcus Mariota and a Titans team that has struggled with turnovers in losses in the Packers vs. Titans.
What NFL fans should watch for in this game is the amount of turnovers Marcus Mariota does or doesn’t commit. The young quarterback has shown a tendency to commit turnovers in tough games this season as he has thrown six interceptions and just seven touchdowns in Tennessee’s loses while also losing four fumbles. On the flip side, Mariota has thrown 10 touchdowns to just two interceptions and not lost a single fumble in Tennessee’s wins.
What else NFL fans should watch for in the Packers vs. Titans is Green Bay’s ability to protect Aaron Rodgers. The Packers have given up three sacks in two losses the past two weeks and gave up five in an early-season loss to the Vikings. The Packers tend to have a very tough time winning games if they can’t keep pressure off of their star quarterback, so keep an eye on if the Titans can find a way to turn up the heat on Rodgers in the Packers vs. Titans.
