Plus, it makes it that much worse if you lose.
This is also true... The GB game is pretty crucial for us, because our first 5 games are really tough:
@ SEA (SNF)
@ STL (TNF)
Our schedule is easier from there, but if we can get through with a 3-2 or better record, it'll set up really nicely for a good playoff push.
What will be more interesting in the GB game will be how they plan to play Kaep. I think they'll try to limit his rushing and leave single deep safety help over the top, which will mean a big day for Kaep, Vernon, Boldin, and company
