New York Jets vs. Green Bay Packers: Sunday NFL Weather report
Here we go folks, it’s week two in the NFL and our New York Jets travel up to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
It’s the start of six straight games against top-level quarterbacks — not like I”m telling you guys anything you don’t already know.
So, the game Sunday at Lambeau Field kicks off at 4:25 p.m. so here’s what the weather will be like (and I’m happy to say no white stuff and temp will be good)
“Mostly sunny, with a high near 63. Sunday Night: A 30 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 49.”
Sunday should be a beautiful day in Green Bay for football and so conditions wise, no one has the clear-cut advantage. If you said Green Bay because they know how their field reacts to the conditions with the weather being lousy earlier in the week; I’ll give it to you.

I like to think I was pretty spot on with my keys to the game and I was right about the Jets winning the game… Anyway, here’s my keys to victory:
1. The play of the secondary: Antonio Allen, Darrin Walls and the rest of the secondary played well. But let’s face it, this was the Oakland Raiders who started a rookie quarterback. We’re talking about Aaron “Mr. Discount Doublecheck” Rodgers. This guy is one of the top five quarterbacks in the league. He’s still got good receivers, especially in Jordy Nelson. Know your assignments and cover your guy in one on one. The return of Dee Milliner, if he can give you the same type of effort he did in camp prior to the injury, can be a real good thing.
2. Pressure on Rodgers: The Packers have a rookie center on the offensive line and a second year player. In Bill Parcels I trust so he says that line’s in experienced and as we all know, the Jets have one of the best front sevens in the league. Win the trench battle defensively and let guys like Sheldon Richardson and Damon “Snacks” Harrison work this young line. (Yes I know that TJ Lang, Bryan Bulaga and Josh Sitton have a combined 18 years in the league).
3. Run like the wind: Win that battle up front on offense and let Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell do what they do. This is a real good three-headed rushing monster. Let them loose and make life easier for Geno Smith.
4. Protect the ball Geno: I think the headline said it all. I don’t mind Smith taking off and running, but can sliding please be the first response rather than lowering the shoulder?!?!? Also make smart decisions… you turn it over on offense, Rodgers will make you pay for it.
5. PLAY SMART: Cut down on the penalties. That was the biggest problem last week for the Jets. Rodgers will make you pay.
If Gang Green does the above, the Jets win the ball game close but you can’t get into a shootout.
