GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Packers are 2-touchdown underdogs this week at Pittsburgh.
It’s a weird reality for a Green Bay squad used to playing the role of favorite. The Packers haven't been 14-point underdogs in 7 years, since visiting the Patriots and playing without a concussed Aaron Rodgers in 2010.
In need of a hero, WR Davante Adams has stepped up. Even in a loss, his game was on point last week with 126 yards in the shutout defeat. And Adams doesn't much care what anyone thinks will happen Sunday. He plans to have a say in the outcome.
“I don't care who bets what,” Adams said. “It doesn't make a difference to me. We still have to play the game. I'm not a betting on it so it doesn't change my life. Look at the bright side of things. There's a lot of good that we're showing out there. Obviously last game there wasn't much of it in terms of scoring or any of it. But you have to keep moving forward. This game is about ups and downs and runs, and I guess the other side of that, which is what we are going through right now. But you have to fight through adversity. It's not going to be easy. If it were easy everybody would be doing it.”
On the injury report, only RB Aaron Jones has been ruled OUT for the game.
DL Kenny Clark is DOUBTFUL along with RB Ty Montgomery.
LB Clay Matthews is QUESTIONABLE though he hasn't practiced this week. Full practice participants CB Kevin King and S Morgan Burnett are QUESTIONABLE as well.
