After most of the writers here at Acme Packing Company were pessimistic about the Packers' game in New York last week, our fears came to fruition as the Green Bay defense couldn't force enough turnovers and the offense was held to just a single touchdown despite moving the ball well at times through the air.
This week, however, is a different story. The Packers host the Minnesota Vikings, who insist on continuing to start Christian Ponder for reasons that even Vikings fans cannot comprehend. Compound that with a defense that allows the fourth-most passing yards per game, is in the bottom half of the league in interceptions, and is the worst in the league in terms of Pro-Football-Reference's "expected points contributed," we should see the Packers put points on the board with Scott Tolzien continuing to play quarterback.
That's our position on this game, and it's a clean sweep with all of us picking Green Bay to win on Sunday. Here are our complete picks, and make sure to submit yours for the APC Pick'Em contest.

Our unanimous picks are New Orleans on Thursday night along with the Ravens, Panthers, Lions, Packers, Texans, Chiefs, Broncos, and 49ers. A few of us are picking the Rams to beat the Bears at home, a result which would certainly please Packers fans.
As for last week, Dan crushed it with a 12-3 week, while overall it was pretty solid for all of us. Eric continues to hold a slim lead overall.
