SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D
Early in the season, we include last season in the analysis. At 4-5-1 the Packers are behind their money line projected win total of 5.6 wins. They have just one bad loss where they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 0 good wins (upset wins, or blowout victory in what was expected to be a close game). They have exceeded expectations in home games. Their 4-0 home record is +30% better than their expected win percentage. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 1-3, 25%. The Packers should be a slightly above average team based on simulations where they won 52.7% of the simulations played vs every other team as if they were playing on a neutral court with players available in the playoffs (#12 in the league). They have moved up from #17 in the league back on 11/6.
They are an above average scoring team based on points per game, which make sense given their strong yards per play rank. They are a below average scoring defense based on points per game and a below average defensive TD rate.
