Last week: 4 (+3)

Record: 1-1

The Packers came out flat defensively week 1 and lost to the 49ers and fire on defensively and beat the Bears week 2. Both are worthy opponents, but which defensive effort was the real one? I still don’t like their reliance on forcing turnovers, but if they can continue to play at least solid defense, they’ll be as tough to beat as they have been over the last 25 games, where they’re 22-3.
