A showdown between Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger is a no-brainer prime time matchup. One between Roethlisberger and Brett Hundley is a bit harder to sell. But that’s what they’ll have to do when the Packers and Steelers meet on Sunday Night Football, broadcast live at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
The Packers’ fate rests in the right arm of their backup quarterback after losing Rodgers to a broken collarbone in Week 6. The transition hasn’t been a smooth one; Hundley is just 1-4 as the team’s primary quarterback this fall. He’ll need to overcome a behemoth to get Green Bay back in the playoff hunt.
If the Packers want to win on Sunday, they are going to need more from Brett Hundley who committed four turnovers last Sunday in the Packers 23-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. However, Hundley has shown more accuracy in the last three games, completing 65 percent of his passes and he also has a rushing touchdown in two of the last four games.
The Packers are now 5-5 on the year and they look to get back on track this Sunday night when they face the Pittsburgh Steelers. Make sure you’re in the loop – take five seconds to Sign up for our FREE Packers newsletter now!
