The Green Bay Packers are expected to contend for the NFC title and have looked solid and balanced everywhere already. They are 2-0 and outscoring opponents by a 45-26 count good for fourth best in the NFL preseason. Almost all of their production was without star QB Aaron Rodgers, who will play more than one series for the first time. Combined with Brett Hundley, this is an outstanding August quarterback rotation. Hundley has been everything they hoped through two exhibitions, picking up where he left off two years ago as a rookie, before an ankle injury wiped out most of his playing time last preseason. Hundley is completing 68 percent of his preseason passes (17-for-25) for 197 yards, two touchdowns and a 101.6 rating. Four of his incompletions against the Eagles were drops, and without drops Hundley would be 22-for-25 (88 percent) in two games. The defense has been even better, allowing nine and 17 points. They face a Denver team that rolled over two rebuilding teams (Bears, 49ers), which is not the case this week. The Denver QB rotation is average at best with Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and rookie Kyle Sloter. The strength of the team is defense, allowing 17 and 14 points in two games. Back the visitors with their superior QB edge in a defensive duel. Play the Green Bay straight-up and UNDER the total.
