Vasquez: How do you see this game playing out?
"Bretl: I very well could see this turning into a higher-scoring matchup. But with that said, I don’t think the Packers offense has enough firepower to keep up with Miami, and I simply don’t trust the Green Bay defense to get enough stops. If Green Bay is going to win, it begins with the defense limiting the number of big plays and the offense moving the ball in the run game, which will, in turn, create opportunities through the air. However, I have the Dolphins winning this one. Miami 34 – Green Bay 28"
Although the Green Bay Packers have rallied and found some life, it sure feels like Paul isn’t convinced with what he’s seen on the field, one thing Dolphins fans should remember though is that Green Bay standards and Miami standards for football are entirely different.
So when Packers fans and writers are underwhelmed by the team, it’s because they are not a Superbowl favorite, but they are still scratching and clawing for the playoffs. Funny enough Miami is sort of doing the same thing.
It’s a matchup that will be much closer than expected, even if the Packers haven’t looked as good as in previous years it would be extremely silly to take a HOF talent like Aaron Rodgers lightly. Rodgers has put similar talent on his back for wins on big days.
Christmas Day on primetime is as big as it gets, it should be an electric matchup vs the Packers and the Dolphins.
