The Opponent: The Green Bay Packers were one of the most popular Super Bowl picks heading into the 2010 season. However, an unbelievable rash of injuries, along with inconsistent and undisciplined play has led to a somewhat disappointing 4-3 start. Green Bay is coming off a gutsy win over the Vikings on Sunday Night football, which could be to the Jets advantage. The Packers can rush the passer and throw the football but can’t stop the run or run the football. This game will be a good test to see if Revis Island has actually returned to the map alongside Alcrotraz and would be a good week to let Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson combine for 38 – 42 carries.

PhotobucketKey Players: Aaron Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks in the league and is always capable of putting up some monster numbers. Greg Jennings and Donald Driver are a formidable duo at receiver and will be a big test for Antonio Cromartie and Darrelle Revis. Clay Matthews leads the NFL in sacks and Charles Woodson is a playmaker in the secondary.

Injuries: The Jets should finally be 100 percent for this one. Ryan Pickett and Cullen Jenkins could join the long list of Packers who will be sitting this one out.

Key Storylines: Is Darrelle Revis really 100 percent? How will the Jets look coming off their bye week? Can the Jets find a way to block Clay Matthews?
