As J.J. and Gil feared, the Vikings were able to capitalize on sloppy mistakes by an exhausted Packers team down many of its superstars and badly in need of a bye week. But before they can rest, Green Bay has perhaps the toughest test of their season so far in Packers vs Rams as a familiar face returns to the frozen North from sunnier California. Matthew Stafford and the Rams vs Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, Davante Adams vs Jalen Ramsey, Matt LaFleur vs Sean McVay, and the defense that earned Joe Barry a coordinator shot last year are coming off a 2-game losing streak, a bye week of their own, and the addition of Odell Beckham, Jr., and they intend to give the cheeseheads a run for their money.

The guys make their picks for Packers vs Rams, and highlight matchups and weaknesses Green Bay needs to defend and exploit. A win at home against the dangerous Rams would provide some much-needed momentum as the team finally gets to rest for a week and try to get healthy.
