Why the Packers can cover the spread
The Packers are an extreme case to make right now, with four misfortunes in their last five diversions, including a 23-0 blanking by Baltimore a week ago. Green Bay drove the opening ownership of the diversion to the Ravens 5-yard line, yet reinforcement quarterback Brett Hundley tossed a block attempt at last zone. Also, that was as close as the Packers got to scoring throughout the day.
Green Bay just trailed 6-0 at halftime a week ago, and on the day the Packers outgained Baltimore 265-219. In any case, five turnovers, including three Hundley picks, essentially cost them 16 focuses.
Two weeks prior Green Bay got its first triumph under Hundley, 23-16 at Chicago. The Packers ran the ball for 160 yards that day, and Hundley tossed zero block attempts.
