A small COVID-19 outbreak resulted in the Week 8 absences of Packers defensive coordinator Joe Barry as well as Aaron Rodgers’ top two wide receivers: Davante Adams and Allen Lazard.

Cardinals 38, Packers 27 . Joe Giglio : What a year it’s been for Arizona. The schedule makers have been kind, and this one can fall into that category as well. An overrated Packers team, at home, on a short week?

The Packers’ stats don’t place as high as the Cardinals. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers only has 1,710 passing yards this season, while the Packers only have one wide receiver and one running back with over 300 yards. Wide receiver Davante Adams (744 yards, 13 TDs) tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and will not be playing in Thursday’s game. Running back Aaron Jones (404 yards) is good to go.
