The Packers head into week 15 against the Rams coming off a 28-19 win on the road against the Bears. At 5-8, the Packers are 3rd in the NFC North and 10th in the NFC. They need to win out to realistically have any shot at the postseason which sportsbooks such as FanDuel Casino in Pennsylvania have indicated this occurring under some very slim odds.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense will get some help at wide receiver as Romeo Doubs is scheduled to return to action. He has been out since suffering an ankle injury in week nine against the Lions.
Doubs, a rookie 4th round pick out of Nevada, was showing signs of becoming a consistent secondary option prior to his injury. He opened the season with 4 receptions for 37 yards against Vikings and 2 receptions for 27 yards in week two. His best game was in week three, hauling in all eight targets for 73 yards and his first NFL touchdown. Doubs has 31 receptions on 50 targets for the season for 314 yards.
The Packers head into play this week with the 15th ranked passing offense in the NFL. That will get a boost with Doubs joining Allen Lazard and Christian Watson. There should be ample weapons to go against the Rams’ passing defense that is 21st in yards allowed at nearly 229 yards per game.
