The 2022 NFL season is finally here and the Week 4 schedule is chock full of exciting showdowns. One of the most interesting matchups of the week is a meeting between the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers.
The new season has been back and forth for the Patriots, who are fresh off a 37-26 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The Packers, meanwhile, won their second straight game in the form of a 14-12 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Can Bill Belichick get his Patriots back on track with a road victory? Or will the Packers send the fans at Lambeau Field home happy?

It doesn't take a lot to see which side is heavily favored in this Week 4 tilt. On top of being the unanimous projected favorite, the Packers are also favored by a whopping 95% of highlighted experts.
You can never rule out a Belichick-led team pulling off an upset, but the Patriots' best projection sitting at 33.6% (numberFire) doesn't exactly inspire confidence.
Throw in the fact that Brian Hoyer will start for the injured Mac Jones, making it easy to see why this game is the Packers' to lose.
