Packers vs. Jets 2010 NFL Predictions, NFL Picks & Vegas Odds: After two consecutive NFL predictions overtime losses, the Green Bay Packers (4-3) bounced back with a 28-24 win against their NFC North division rivals, the Minnesota Vikings, and now must travel to the Meadowlands to take on the AFC East leading New York Jets (5-1) in a non-conference NFL picks showdown in week eight of the NFL predictions season. Vegas odds have the Jets as -6½(-110) point NFL odds favorites at home.
The Packers have been ravaged by injuries this NFL predictions season. The team has lost two offensive stars for the NFL odds season and their front seven is banged-up, but they currently reside in first place in their division. Aaron Rodgers has been solid this NFL odds season with more than 1,800 yards passing and 12 touchdown passes, but he has had difficulty protecting the ball and has nine picks on his record for htre 2010 NFL picks season. With emerging star Jermichael Finley out, Rodgers has had to rely on receivers Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, and James Jones, although they will be challenged by the Jets secondary. Clay Matthews Jr. still leads the league in sacks, though he has been slowed in recent weeks by injury. A. J. Hawk and Charles Woodson are still stalwarts but the defense has proven vulnerable in recent weeks leading up to this week's NFL predictions contest versus the Jets.
The Jets have allowed opponents 20 points or more in three of their NFL predictions victories so they can be scored upon. With Darrelle Revis injured most of the year, the secondary has been passed on and ranks near the bottom half of the league in yardage allowed. Revis should be healthy again for this week’s NFL picks contest, which is bad news for Rodgers and Jennings. The Jets have stoned the run game, and have forced 14 turnovers. Making the Pack one dimensional will be New York’s game plan in today's week 8 NFL predictions contest. On offense, the Jets seek to control tempo and the ball with a power running game led by LaDanian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene that is ranked #2 in the NFL. Against a Green Bay defense that has struggled to defend the run, this is a bad match-up. Mark Sanchez has protected the ball and has found go-to receivers in Braylon Edwards and tight end Dustin Keller.
