Consistency at quarterback means a lot to a team and the Green Bay Packers have been blessed in that department. Since 1992, the club has had only two regular full-time starters. Brett Favre got it going and he mentored Aaron Rodgers, who took over in 2008. The balance of power may be shifting in the NFC North now that Rodgers is sidelined for perhaps the rest of the season and Brett Hundley will make his first NFL start when Green Bay hosts the New Orleans Saints in Week 7.
Hundley will join the likes of Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien and Seneca Wallace as the only quarterbacks other than Rodgers to start a game for the Packers since 2008. Hundley was thrown into a difficult situation last week, coming in after Rodgers sustained a broken collarbone in the first half, and did little to give Green Bay faithful hope. He completed 18 of 33 passes for 157 yards, but he was sacked four times and tossed three interceptions.
With a week to prepare for the Saints, the situation should be different. The Packers have plenty of weapons and Hundley’s disposal and that’s not going to change. But Hundley must realize who he is and who his isn’t. He isn’t Rodgers, and nobody in the game today can place the former MVP. But Hundley has the tools to be successful. He’ll rely on a run game bolstered by Aaron Jones and use Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb through the air. It won’t be the same Packers team without Rodgers, but they won’t be as bad off as many expect.

Week 6: Vikings 23, Packers 10
ATS Result: Vikings +3
Over/Under Total Result: Under 46
The game was lost when Rodgers went down on Green Bay’s second possession. Hundley forged a tie with a scoring pass to Adams in the second quarter, but the Vikings dialed up the pressure and Hundley had a tough time responding. The Packers defense was strong, but they couldn’t overcome the loss of their leader and lost outright while playing below the closing total.
Week 5: Packers 35, Cowboys 31
ATS Result: Packers +2.5
Over/Under Total Result: Over 52
Instead of settling for a field goal and a tie that would’ve taken the game to OT, the Packers went for it and got the win with a last second touchdown pass from Rodgers. With the best QB in the game, why not go for it. Green Bay came out a winner in regulation and paid off its backers by winning outright. The Pack used a balanced offensive attack and got a pick-six from Damarius Randall to cash the over for a fourth straight game.
Week 4: Packers 35, Bears 14
ATS Result: Packers -7.5
Over/Under Total Result: Over 44
Thanks to Mike Glennon the Packers didn’t have to worry about their patched up offensive line. In fact the group was pretty damn good when the Pack took the opening kickoff and drove 75 yards in 10 plays to get the rout started. The defense forced a fumble on Chicago’s first offensive play and Rodgers cashed in a few plays later. Before you could blink the Packers were up 14-0 and on their way to an easy cover win.
Week 3: Packers 27, Bengals 24 (OT)
ATS Result: Bengals +7
Over/Under Total Result: Over 47.5
Rodgers worked his magic saving the Packers from an embarrassing loss. He tossed a tying touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson with three seconds left, and his 72-yard completion to Geronimo Allison set up Mason Crosby’s game-winning field goal in overtime. The Pack failed to cover for the second straight week, but the over improved to 2-1, thanks to Rodgers’ heroics.
Week 2: Falcons 34, Packers 23
ATS Result: Falcons -3
Over/Under Total Result: Over 55
Take out the second quarter and the Packers win the game 23-17. Unfortunately, they can’t do that and the 17-0 outburst in that frame was the difference. The Pack couldn’t move the ball and allowed Atlanta to score twice after punts. The third score was a back-breaker. The Falcons cashed in late in the half following an interception to take a 24-7 lead at the break. Atlanta scored early in the third on a fumble return to seal the game. The Pack scored twice in the fourth to surpass the total, but it wasn’t enough.
Week 1: Packers 17, Seahawks 9
ATS Result: Packers -2.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 49.5
The Packers were shutout in the first half and trailed 3-0 at the intermission, but that didn’t deter Rodgers or the defense. Daniels made the biggest play of the game with his strip-sack, which was recovered by Kyle Fackrell at the Seattle 6-yard line. Green Bay took the lead on the very next play with Ty Montgomery scooting into the end zone. After a Seattle field goal, the Pack marched for another touchdown and got a field goal on their next possession. Green Bay ran off the final after Seattle pulled within 17-9, never giving the Seahawks a chance to tie the game.
Preseason Record: 3-1
ATS Record: 3-0-1
Over/Under Total Record: 0-4
The Packers and Seahawks have played on even terms since the 2009 season with each winning three games. But homefield advantage has been just that in this series with the hosts winning each of those six games. And Green Bay’s streak at Lambeau dates back even farther. The Pack has won seven straight at home against Seattle dating back to the 2003 season and is 5-1-1 ATS. They’ve also scored an average of nearly 39 points per game over the last four.
