My Prediction: The Packers are one of the top defensive teams in the league and are also near the top in sacks. The way Eagles QB Mike Vick has been getting hammered lately, I expect the Pack to blitz like crazy and get Vick out of his rythm. Aaron Rodgers will have a big game against a banged up Eagles secondary and Green Bay will advance.
