GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – It might be too early to officially declare Sunday’s matchup against the Denver Broncos a must-win for the Green Bay Packers, but it sure feels like it for Jordan Love and his offense.
Green Bay heads into Denver at 2-3, while Denver might actually be in a more dire state to win as they’re a mere 1-5 with former Wisconsin Badgers star Russell Wilson under center.
The Packers are coming off a bye week, so they’ve had plenty of time to get healthy and prepare for this matchup, but it’s the NFL, and just about anything can happen.
