ESPN -- Rank: 4
Not only are the Packers allowing nearly 5 yards per rush, but they're having troubling bringing runners down. There are only three teams allowing more rushing yards after contact than the Packers. This was an issue last year, and it continues to be one this season.

With a three-game stretch coming up against the Giants, Jets and Commanders, the Packers won't have a chance to prove they're serious contenders until a Week 8 trip to Buffalo. It's probably the perfect time to send Aaron Rodgers, Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Allen Lazard to Joshua Tree so they can connect on a higher level for a few weeks while Jordan Love hands the ball off to Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon for some easy victories.
One of the problems with Green Bay is it signaled an offseason shift to become a defense-and-run-first team, and the Packers haven't really been great at either. They're allowing a league-high 71.7 completion percentage while blitzing at the second-highest rate in the league. They're also only 12th in rushing success rate, per TruMedia.
