Buffalowdown got in touch with Lombardiave, the Packers FanSided site, and spoke with Josh McPeak about the game tomorrow.  BLD asked Josh a couple of questions in a little Q and A.  Josh sent me a couple of questions as well as we got ready for the game.  We both agree that this game is going to be a good one.

The Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers have only met 5 times since 1997 and the home team has always been the winner.  Will history repeat itself this Sunday? Let’s hope so.

"1. Josh, Packers and Bills don’t come around a lot.  They have only played 5 times since 1997.  Tell us a little about Lombardiave.com and a little about yourself.I think we are in for a treat on Sunday as two historic teams with great fan bases go to battle. Ray Rivard brought me on board Lombardi Ave a few months shy of a year now. It has been a great way to express my views and channel my energy as a fan for the greatest team in sports, the Green Bay Packers. My dad was a diehard Cleveland Browns fan and somehow I spiraled away from that and into the land of the cheesheads at an age I can’t remember. It’s been a great ride and I have enjoyed the two Super Bowl victories that I have been alive to witness. Not to mention Brett Favre and now Aaron Rodgers. A truly “blessed” organization at the quarterback position.2. Aaron Rodgers is a smart QB, the Bills have, arguably,  the best defensive line in the league this year. Does Mario Williams and the D-Line get to Aaron Rodgers this week?This may sound outlandish to the common fan but somehow, I believe the current offensive line of the Packers has developed into one that could rival the Dallas Cowboys of the early 90’s. Rodgers is probably the most accurate and intelligent quarterback I have seen in my lifetime. With that said however, if he has one fault it’s that at times, he holds onto the ball a shade too long. Eddie Lacy has emerged in the screen/check-down game to counterbalance that at the same time. One play against the Patriots Rodgers held the ball for 12 seconds before releasing it without getting sacked. He will not enjoy that Sunday against the Bills. I would be surprised if he escapes Sunday’s game with less than two sacks.3. This is more of a beginning of the year question, but going into week 15, who has just not performed up to their potential for the Packers this year?This one hurts as I am a big fan of his but I have to say AJ Hawk. His inability to make plays seems to have finally reached a head as he has found his way to the bench. With only ½ sack, 0 interceptions, 0 forced fumbles and 0 fumble recoveries, his career in Green Bay may be finished after this season. He is one of the toughest players to suit up for the green and gold every week and has been a constant tackler in the middle, but he is just not capable of being a playmaker.4. The Packers are on national TV a lot, and we get to see them just about every week.  Who might be a diamond in the rough for the Packers that Bills fans might not know about coming into the game?Every opportunity I get to talk about Casey Hayward, I take. Hayward is simply a ball hawk and is capable of making a huge play after every snap of the game. His 3 interceptions for 113 yards and 2 fumble recoveries (one of which he took to the house) are just a glimpse of what he brings to the table. I would love to see the Packers increase his roll and mix him in with the likes of Tramon Williams and Sam Shields on a more frequent basis. He is capable of changing the game if Kyle Orton slips up and provides an opportunity.5. What do you think the outcome of the game will be? Any key players that will impact the game?The Buffalo Bills did a great job on Peyton Manning last week. Holding the future Hall of Famer to only 173 yards passing with 2 interceptions and 0 touchdowns. Buffalo also leads the NFL in sacks with 48. Green Bay could possibly have the premiere offensive line in all of the NFL however.Dom Capers’ squad looked like shades of old in the second half against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night, nearly blowing a 24 point halftime lead. It will be interesting to see what kind of pressure they can get on old foe Kyle Orton, along with how they contain the rookie speedster wide receiver Sammy Watkins. All three of Green Bay’s losses have come on the road as well. At 7-6 this Bills team record doesn’t indicate the caliber of team the Packers will be up against on Sunday. If there are still questions to be answered, I think Sunday will do just that.Aaron Rodgers is the best player in the NFL right now and I believe Kyle Orton will provide #12 with a few extra possessions.Packers 31 Bills 17"
