The Green Bay Packers (3-0) are fighting to remain undefeated in Week 4, taking on the Denver Broncos at home in Lambeau Field.

4. Capitalize on Kyle Orton's mistakes. Charles Woodson jumped an out-route from underneath, taking a clean interception 30 yards for a pick-six touchdown to put the Packers up, 14-3. The Broncos have enough problems keeping up with Green Bay's offense. Disguising coverage could lead to more interceptions in the second half.

3. Use James Starks to set up play action. Playing with a lead, the Packers will need to speed up the game by effectively running the ball. Starks has had some success running through the teeth of the defense. In turn, this will give Rodgers a couple opportunities to get the ball downfield to his stable of talented receivers.

2. Make Denver's offense one-dimensional. The Broncos averaged nearly six yards per carry, but now down 28-17, the Broncos may have to abandon the run at some point to conserve time and slow the game down. This will play to Green Bay's advantage.

1. Go for the jugular. The Packers need to keep the crowd involved, and they have plenty of offensive firepower to turn 28 points into 45 in a hurry. If the team continues to go for it, the Broncos won't be able to keep up. With over 200 yards passing at the half, Rodgers is on pace for a massive day.
