49ers vs. Packers: 5 bold predictions for Sunday Night Football
By Peter Panacy
No. 3: Deommodore Lenoir intercepts Aaron Rodgers
It might be crazy to think, but Aaron Rodgers has thrown only two regular-season interceptions against the Niners over his Hall of Fame career.
So, perhaps from that vantage point, he’s due for his third.
One of the X-factors for Sunday is going to be how Packers wide receiver Davante Adams works against rookie cornerback Deommodore Lenoir, who has been one of San Francisco’s better storylines from an otherwise uninspiring 2021 NFL Draft class.
Lenoir, who has allowed only five completions on 11 targets this season, will have his hands full with players like Adams, and it won’t be a shocker to see Rodgers target the rookie a lot on Sunday night.
True, don’t be surprised if Lenoir gets beat on more than one occasion by Adams, who had his way with the Lions to the tune of 121 yards on eight receptions.
But if the next factor on this prediction list winds up coming true to a point, Lenoir might be in a position where he secures his first-ever regular-season interception.
Doing so off Rodgers would be quite the achievement, too.
