As we head into week 4 of the new NFL regular season, the league is starting to take shape. As it stands, each franchise has played three games out of 17 in the regular season. We have selected our game of the week – the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers!
Green Bay Packers
It was an extremely disappointing start to the season for the Green Bay Packers, who lost 38-3 to the New Orleans Saints. It was not a good start to the season, but now the Packers look to have set the record straight since. A 35-17 win against NFC North rivals the Detroit Lions, followed by a strong win in their latest game against the San Francisco 49ers, the Packers seem to have turned it around, and now it’s business as usual – for the time being. Now, Aaron Rodgers & the offense face a tough Pittsburgh side that have had an up & down season so far.
For the Pittsburgh Steelers, they were the complete opposite to their upcoming opponents, with an incredible 23-16 win on the road to the Buffalo Bills. It was an extremely strong win in week 1 for Pittsburgh, but unfortunately they were brought back down in week 2, losing 26-17 to the Las Vegas Raiders. Then, in their latest game, a disappointing 24-10 loss to AFC North rivals the Cincinnati Bengals have left the Steelers 1-2 on the year. They will look to bounce back in week 4, but it will be an extremely difficult task on the road.
Steelers @ Packers – Ones to Watch
When we look at the Pittsburgh roster, the first-round running back Najee Harris has impressed this season for the Steelers. Despite only having 40 rushing yards in their 24-10 loss, he managed to be the leading player in receiver yards for the Steelers with 102. He may be one of the main weapons on this Steelers offense, and could be one to watch against the Packers D.
Meanwhile, the Packers of course have a few names that are always closely looked at by opposition. While star running back Aaron Jones is always a presense in the run game, Davante Adams is Rodgers’ main target in the air, and could cause a problem for the Steelers secondary.
