The Packers have a chance to put most of the bad things that happened to them – or that they did to themselves – early in the season behind them with another victory. A four-game winning streak and 6-3 record entering the bye would be best-case-scenario after their controversial loss at Seattle Sept. 24 and their troubling loss at Indianapolis two weeks later, when they blew an 18-point lead. The guess here is that they get the job done at home. The tougher call? What they do in the final seven post-bye games. Five of the seven will be against NFC North foes (home-and-homes with Detroit and Minnesota, plus a road game at Chicago), along with a road trip to visit the New York Giants and a home game against their final AFC South foe, Tennessee. Packers 30, Cardinals 13. (Record: 4-4)
