Packers Versus Jets Preview | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers versus Jets tickets
Last Thursday, the Packers went on the road to Seattle for what was considered to be their toughest game of the entire season and came away with a 36-16 loss in which mental errors ruled the day. Take that tape and throw it out, not much to see there. Now it is time to move on to their next opponent, the New York Jets. Here is what we will be watching on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Will Eddie Lacy play? Lacy suffered a concussion week one, which is already the second of his young NFL career. Remember last season he suffered a concussion, then came back and run for 1100 yards, winning offensive rookie of the year honors. Mike McCarthy has said Lacy cleared the first step of the concussion tests, so that is a good sign. If he can’t play, James Starks will get the nod to start. Starks can do fine in a sport start, so I wouldn’t worry much there. Also expect to see Dejaun Harris some, even if Lacy does play. We are beginning to think the Packers goal was to get out of Seattle alive, which is why we didn’t see much from them.

Can Devonte Adams and/or Jarrett Boykin step it up? The third and fourth receiver positions on this team have been very important the last few years in the Mike McCarthy version of the West Coast spread. However Boykin and Adams were non-factors in week one. We expect that to change in week two. Look for one or both to play a pivotal role this week.

Can Derek Sherrod play as well as he did in the preseason? Brian Bulaga tore his MCL in week  one against Seattle, possibly putting his NFL career in doubt. In steps Derek Sherrod, who has had injury problems himself but is healthy for the first time in his career. Sherrod play very well in the preseason, and looked decent being thrust into action against the Seahawks.

Will Leroy Guion start at nose tackle again? B.J. Raji suffered a season ending injury during the preseason, which left the nose tackle position wide open. Guion got the start possibly due to experience, but he was simply overmatched. We believe Mike Pennel or Josh Boyd should be the starter. Also look for the possibility of either Johnny Jolly or Ryan Pickett being brought back. Both are free agents right now although Jolly would need medical clearance.

We expect the Packers to win this game no matter who plays. Final Score: 31-17 Packers.
