For the second straight week, the Green Bay Packers square off with an AFC East opponent on Sunday, their third such game of the year. Last week’s game was an ugly 31-17 loss to the New England Patriots, who capitalized on an early fourth-quarter fumble by Aaron Jones and stopped the Packers’ offense down the stretch.
This week the Packers will try to bounce back at home against a scuffling Miami Dolphins squad. Miami jumped out to a 3-0 start this year, but has struggled since, going just 2-4. Part of the reason for those struggles is an injury to starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has had to miss several games and was already ruled out for Sunday’s game in Green Bay. Instead, Brock Osweiler will make his fifth start of the year in relief.
Osweiler did have a very good game in his first start, when the Dolphins beat the Chicago Bears 31-28 in overtime. However, since then he has been unimpressive, particularly after the team lost wideout Albert Wilson to injured reserve.
Unfortunately for Packers fans outside the Midwest and Florida, the game is up against a better matchup on the same network: the Rams and Seahawks, whose game is being shown to most other parts of the country. Check out the broadcast map below for more details.
