Packers vs. Panthers Week 7 Game Predictions from All Green Bay Packers All the Time
Week 7 Green Bay Packers vs. Carolina Panthers
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 5-1 Green Bay Packers 35-28
Uh oh. Another read option quarterback. This time it’s Cam Newton. I don’t have much confidence the defense has learned to stop a read-option so I am going to go with the Packers in another shootout. I would not be surprised to see Carolina steal this one, but a hot Aaron Rodgers trumps anything else in the Panthers’ deck
“Jersey” Al Bracco 5-1 Green Bay Packers 27-24
To be honest, I have a bad feeling about this game. Panthers D is fast and aggressive and the offense features a quarterback as dangerous on the ground as in the air. However, I’m calling for some late game heroics again, this time from the defense, who force a few big turnovers when they are needed most.
Adam Czech 5-1 Green Bay Packers 30-23
This game worried me early in the week. Now, I’m confident the Packers will emerge with another W. Cam Newton is scary, but if WR Kelvin Benjamin is out, the Packers D should be able to do enough to win. Carolina’s defense isn’t what it was last year, either. Expect big things from Rodgers and the offense.
Thomas Hobbes 4-2 Green Bay Packers 28-17
 I’m not sure the Panthers have the firepower to beat the Packers straight up and they definitely don’t have the firepower to beat the Packers as banged up as they are.  The Packers offense will get their choice with both a terrible Carolina run and pass defense.
Chad Toporski 5-1 Green Bay Packers 31-28
I might actually have picked the Panthers if they were healthier going into this game. Of course, if the Packers’ defense was healthier I’d have them winning by a larger margin. The question is: which team can survive on their depth chart?
Jason Perone 4-2 Green Bay Packers 28-27
This one is a toss up with Aaron Rodgers playing well and the defense’s historic struggles with mobile quarterbacks.  Green Bay will have opportunities to put up points and the defense has more takeaways than anyone else in the league.  It comes down to the wire, but I have to give the nod to Rodgers and the Packers at home.
Jay Hodgson 6-0 Green Bay Packers 27-24
This game will be extremely close. For starters, the Packers are coming off a huge emotional win, so be prepared for a hangover against a lesser team. The interior of the Packers defense should be able to contain Cam Newton if they play their keys correctly. Newton is actually an inverted veer quarterback, which means his option plays are in between the tackles. Last week against Miami, the Packers were very good against the interior run. It’ll be close, but the home crowd propels the Packers to victory.
Cory Jennerjohn 6-0 Green Bay Packers 31-27
Sunday’s game is about assignment football. With another dose of read-option by the improving Cam Newton, guys like Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers cannot afford to freelance. However, the Panthers are 20th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game (252.3). And with a surging Aaron Rodgers getting comfortable, the only way the Packers lose this one is if the defense fails late.
Andy Burch 4-2 Green Bay Packers 35-21
 The Packers have faced some of the top run defenses in the NFL in 4 of their 6 games so far. They finally don’t see any top run defense teams until the Bills in week 15. I think Lacy gets it going for the rest of the year and once Lacy makes the defense commit, Rodgers will pick them apart. I think the Packers control the game and make Cam Newton try to win it by himself, which I still don’t think he can do.

  1. Wow,
    Surprised by the closeness of all those predictions. I sense a “don’t jinx them” aura coming from our writers! (Not a bad thing). I think we give up a little in the read option in the first half but shut them down in the second. Packers offense will finally put together a cohesive game of yards and points and control the game. 31-17. GoPack!

  2. I’d like to see a lot of Bull-rushing Nick Perry this week, as bull rushing is good for gap discipline. I think GB covers the spread, as long as we have some CBs still standing at the end of the game.

  3. The Packers are the better team, with the better QB and they’re playing at home. Pack controls the clock with their running game, Rodgers stays on a roll with play action passes and the D comes up with a few turnovers. I like the Pack 34-16. Go Pack Go! Thanks, ’61
