At the beginning of the season, there were hopes that new Packers head coach Matt LaFleur would bring a fresh approach. Mike McCarthy had been tuned out by Aaron Rodgers and much of the team at the end of his reign. LaFleur has made a significant difference for NFL bets. Most important of all Rodgers has fully bought in. The future Hall of Fame quarterback has praised LaFleur for bringing renewed purpose and a positive approach. Indeed, the Pack is Back as the favorite to win the NFC North. Sunday, resurgent Oakland visits the Frozen Tundra as potentially dangerous dogs.

Oakland is, methodically improving with the NFL’s 19th ranked scoring offense. In the same way, the Raider defense is ranked 19th.
