Following a playoff season in which they proved near equal to Kansas City expectations were high for the Chargers. But a lengthy injury list and lack of consistent offense have been an NFL betting liability. By contrast, the Packers are responding to a new and much-needed breath of fresh air. First-year head coach Matt Lafleur has connected with Aaron Rodgers to spark a Super Bowl look. The future Hall of Fame quarterback tuned out the previous coach Mike McCarthy. But LaFleur has rejuvenated what became a stale franchise. However, the Packers defense still needs to tighten.
