This is going to be tough, but I'm certain we can win. Fundamental Football.

I worry about who is going to cover Dustin Keller, though. I live in Brooklyn, so I have seen basically every Jets game on TV and he has been coming up big for them and has been Sanchez's safety valve all season. It's going to be tough.

That being said - I think we're going to turn some heads on Sunday. 24-21 Packers.

Offense needs to do ball control to help the defense. Something they might want to try under certain conditions is the reverse. It would have to be in a situation where they are moving the ball pretty well, have a few downs to burn and need to peal some time off the clock in late 4th quarter or even before the half. Also, they have to be pretty proficient at it to ensure they do not lose yardage.

This is definitely a game the Packers can win - but it'll take a mistake-free performance to do it. No turnovers. No major penalties.

If we can dominate time of possession, we can keep our defense off the field. Would be nice.

We don't do well as the favorites anyway. I'll take being the underdog this week.

We match up well with anyone... even with the injuries we should be ok, IF we play smart football.

Pack can win if they win the turnover battle, run the ball and keep the special teams battle within reason.
