The Green Bay Packers are in the midst of a three-game winning streak. Sitting at 7-8, the Packers have found themselves squarely in the playoff discussion. Winning their last two games will be the top priority. The Commanders will need to lose one of their final two games in order for Green Bay to complete the improbable playoff push. This weekend the Packers host the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field and it is an absolute must-win game. Jaire Alexander was asked about the match-up this weekend and made sure to annotate that one aspect of their first meeting was a fluke.
Jaire Alexander Says Justin Jefferson’s Performance In Week One Was A Fluke
He don’t jump in no super suit and get dressed. I don’t either… sometimes. He’s (Justin Jefferson) human is what I’m saying. He’s a really good receiver at the end of the day. I’m a really good corner. We got really good linebackers. D-line. You don’t want to put too much focus on one person. First game, that was a fluke.

Jaire Alexander's thoughts on #Vikings WR Justin Jefferson. Said he's a top-3 receiver in the NFL, but JJ's 9 receptions for 184 yards and 2 TDs in Week 1 against the #Packers was a "fluke." pic.twitter.com/yqZIoP6ktM

The Packers lost to the Vikings 23-7 in week one and Justin Jefferson had himself a game. He caught a total of nine passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns. The Packers will obviously attempt to limit what he can do against Green Bay this weekend. The game is set for 3:25 CT on Sunday and is projected to be in the mid 30s for kickoff. A win would bring Green Bay back to .500 for the first time since October 16th when they lost to the New York Jets 27-10.
The Packers offense has looked much different in recent weeks with the emergence of Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs on the field at the same time. If Green Bay wants to win this weekend, they’ll likely use both. The Vikings defense is currently dead last (32nd) in the NFL in pass yards allowed per game. The Packers should certainly be able to take advantage. If Jaire Alexander and this defense can do their part, the Packers’ offense should be able to move the ball.
