In their 100th NFL season, the Green Bay Packers nearly made it all the way to the Super Bowl, falling just short to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game. The Packers finished the 2020-2021 regular season with a remarkable 13-3 record, clinching the NFC North for the second year in a row.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers won his third career MVP last season at age 37, finishing with the most passing touchdowns and best passer rating in the league. Wide receiver Davante Adams led the league in receiving touchdowns with 18, and finished tied for fifth in yards with 1,374.
The Packers went 10-6 against the spread in the 2020-2021 season, and if you bet on their over/under, they were 10-5-1.
It was a contentious offseason surrounding Rodgers’ future in Green Bay, but he will be the Packers quarterback in 2021-2022. That means this team will be a Super Bowl contender yet again.
Packers GM Brian Gutekunst brought veteran receiver Randal Cobb back to Green Bay, reuniting Rodgers with a comfortable target. The Packers also re-signed edge rusher Preston Smith, added linebacker De’Vondre Campbell, and added right tackle, Dennis Kelly.
During the draft, Green Bay took Georgia corner, Eric Stokes, with the 29th overall pick. Green Bay lost All-Pro center Corey Linsley to free agency, but drafted his replacement in the second round with Josh Myers. The Ohio State standout was the second center taken in the draft.
Action 247 Sportsbook has the Packers over/under for wins this season set at 10.5. Green Bay is favored to win the NFC North at -130, and are listed at +1400 to win Super Bowl 56. Only the Chiefs, Buccaneers, Bills, and Ravens have better odds for hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
