Week 11 at Green Bay Packers

Calling the Green Bay Packers a trap game would have seemed asinine over the last two decades. But for the first time in a long time, there is uncertainty at the quarterback position and it looks like the Packers are going to struggle in 2023 because of it.

There are a lot of NFL fans who are still respecting the Packers as a tough team to beat and while it will be harder at Lambeau Field, there is a good chance that Green Bay is one of the worst teams in the league in 2023.

After all, Jordan Love has not proven anything and this team stunk last year with Aaron Rodgers under center. Sure, Rodgers was not at his best but he wasn't at his best because of a mediocre offensive line and a lack of weapons around him. To assume that Love will come in and even be that good is a jump in logic.

This game is sandwiched in a tough stretch of games and looks like the one "relief" game that the Chargers get in this span. Before this game, the team plays the New York Jets (on primetime) and the Detroit Lions. After this, the team plays the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football.

This is the one game in that month-long stretch that seems like it can be penciled in now and those are always the most dangerous. Dropping a disappointing game on the road at 10:00 a.m. PDT certainly is not out of the realm of possibility.
