I’m starting to think that this Packers team is getting things turned around. The offense has been very efficient and Capers new defense started to show some life, in second half vs. Bears and against the Vikings.
My thinking on Capers is that he historically keeps adding complexity to his defense, season after season, until it becomes too complicated and it actually slows his defense down. McCarthy forcing Capers to rebuild his scheme may have been the ticket to improved performance. Today will be a good test for the defense. Dolphins coach Philbin is very familiar with Capers as a defensive coordinator and his team has a very good rushing game.
I think the Dolphins’ offense will give this team some trouble, however I suspect the Packers’ offense will be just too much for the Dolphins’ defense. Packers 34-27
Season Record: 5-0
