If Bradberry can go for the Carolina Panthers, that would be a huge development. The Panthers are going to need help against a tough Green Bay Packers passing offense. Currently, Aaron Rodgers ranks fourth in the National Football League in passing touchdowns with 17. As a team, the Green Bay Packers have a modest passing offense with 258.7 yards accumulated per game. Nevertheless, any team with Rodgers as the quarterback is always a threat.
Bradberry has had a great year so far. In eight games, he has recorded 35 tackles, a sack, and three passes defended. He has also forced a fumble. There is no doubt that he has been a huge part of the Carolina Panthers defense. It has been great to see him play so well especially after he had a difficult year last year. Then again, last year was difficult for the entire secondary. Hopefully, we will not see a repeat of that down the stretch here.
This Green Bay Packers team is not going to be an easy contest. They are going to come out firing like they always do. The Carolina Panthers will have to be ready. The last time they faced a big-time opponent, they were defeated soundly by the San Francisco 49ers. Hopefully, they will fare better this time around.
The Carolina Panthers need to be firing on all cylinders if they want to beat Green Bay. Having Bradberry available will be huge. A win over the Packers would certainly be a signature win of the season. This team is at its best when both units play a strong game. Carolina was able to respond following adversity with their win over the Tennessee Titans. Now, they will have to face adversity head-on. It’s something that they have been doing all season with tremendous ease given the circumstances. For the most part, they have succeeded at making the best of things.
