Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
One of the biggest reasons for the transformation of the Packers defense this season has been the signing of the Smiths, Preston and Za’Darius, who have combined for 15 sacks and rank inside the top 20 among edge rushers in almost every single statistical category that pertains to generating pressure.
They should both make their presence known throughout Sunday, especially considering Philip Rivers generally waits until the last second to snap the ball, which can give a slight edge to rushers getting a better jump off the snap. And Rivers has been under pressure a ton this season. In fact, only Jared Goff has had more dropbacks under pressure than Rivers, who has been hit a league-high 28 times (the next highest is Miami’s combined 20).
