World News – CA – Thursday Night Football Preview: Packers look to bounce back against stoned 49ers – TSNCalifornia


5h ago

Week 9 of the NFL season has arrived and we have a few struggling teams looking to dig deep and find a win in a short week

Tonight we get a rematch of the 2019 NFC Championship game, but the rosters are very different due to injuries and COVID-19

The Green Bay Packers have just four days to give up 226 yards and four touchdowns to Minnesota Vikings running back Delvin Cook in a 28-22 loss

And after being a few games away from winning Super Bowl LIV, the San Francisco 49ers are the last in the NFC West with a 4-4 record and a load of leading position injuries

Both teams will feel much better about themselves if they manage to secure a victory on Thursday night And the faster we dive into this, the faster I can stop checking to see the election situation in Arizona and Nevada

Not much work for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday when they fell to the Vikings, but the connection between Aaron Rodgers and his wide No.1 Davante Adams was there

Rodgers connected with Adams for all three Green Bay touchdowns and watched his way a total of 11 times, connecting on seven of them for 53 yards

The total yards for Adams was low, but the volume was there, and has been all season

Adams has only appeared in five of Green Bay’s seven games, and yet he leads the Packers in all receiving categories with 502 yards, 58 targets, 43 receptions and seven touchdowns

Adams enters the game with an over / under 785 yards, and I love that he goes over that number

Green Bay’s rushed attack took a heavy blow this week when running backs Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon found themselves on the reserve / COVID-19 injured list

And while no 1 running back Aaron Jones seems on track to play, reports indicate he will not have his usual workload as he has not fully recovered from a calf injury who kept him from going out for the past two weeks

With all of that being known, and with the Packers suffering a loss, I would expect the team to rely a bit more on the passing game tonight and Adams to fly past its more / less than 75 receptions made

Rodgers comes into the game with an over / under 2865 yards and 375 winning attempts I would proceed with caution on those two numbers

Rodgers has also passed 2,865 yards just three times this season and has attempted more than 375 passes six times in 23 starts with Matt LaFleur as the head coach

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, running back Tevin Coleman, eliminated Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne, tight end George Kittle and offensive tackle Trent Williams will all miss tonight’s game after siding for the 49ers Sunday

This injury list is one that would cripple any team playing their second game in just five days But the list doesn’t end there as the 49ers have been without key roster pieces all year and desperately need someone, really anyone, to take the lead and take the field

Nick Mullens is pushed into action again this year, making his third start of the season

His first start came in week three when he threw for 343 yards and a touchdown against the New York Giants, but he followed with a Sunday Nighter stench with just 200 yards on 26 passes with two steals in a 25-to-20-game losing streak against the Philadelphia Eagles

He enters this game with over / under 2115 meters, and I’m tempted to take the upper hand

Mullens took over in the fourth quarter last week and threw for 238 yards and two touchdowns, but the Seahawks were leading by 23 when he entered the game and almost all of the passes he made were out. a player who is not in the lineup tonight

Mullens would have a good chance of exceeding that number under normal circumstances, but with the lack of playmakers around him, I wonder how much San Francisco will rely on passing play.

On the court, JaMycal Hasty led the team in carries last week, rushing 12 times for just 29 yards Will it have a better night against the Packers defense who gave up 285 rushing yards at this team in the NFC championship game?

The Underdogs look great in the limelight this season and are 17-7 ATS in prime time games this season

But Rodgers has covered 75% of his Thursday games in his career, and he’s 34-21-1 ATS in his career following a loss, with six straight wins there.

It’s easy to look at that number and hope the 49ers can come close by controlling the clock and keeping Green Bay’s offense off the field
