At the onset of the Matt LaFleur era has been a rejuvenated Packers team. Fun and enthusiasm have returned to Green Bay. All of which makes last week’s debacle at the Chargers all the more disappointing. A 26-11 NFL betting defeat was a stark reality check for all. Now the Pack must face a dangerous Carolina team with one of the most dynamic players in the game. Panther running back Christian McCaffrey does it all and does it well. Most important of all is that McCaffrey keeps defenses honest. Carolina and Green Bay meet in a potential playoff preview.
