The loss of Rodgers definitely changes their team, but their upcoming schedule appears a bit forgiving. I wouldn't count them out of it yet. They're hosting NO this week, and while the Saints put up a ton of points on DET, a bunch of those came from defensive returns. The Saints also tend to play much better at home or at least on turf than they do outdoors on grass. Even with all their injuries, and their back-up QB, this is a winnable game for them. After that they've got a bye week, which should help get some injured players back and give them a chance to give the QB more time to work with the first string. After that they host the Lions who look rather vulnerable after that shellacking by the Saints. Then they have a trip to Chicago, which is an improving team, but still the bottom of the division before returning home to host the Ravens who seem to be struggling this year. Thus, it seems plausible that they could come out of their next 5 weeks without a loss, improving their record to 8-2 and setting themselves up for a possible playoff run. Their final 6 games feature a few very winnable match-ups (TB, @CLE, @DET), and some tougher games (@PIT, @CAR, MIN), but they could certainly finish those out 3-3 and end up with an 11-5 mark which is probably good enough for a WC if not the Division.
