For instance, one should look at the schedule. Green Bay has played four road games and only three home games. But there have been three teams with winning records outside of their game against the Packers and four who have losing records, and they have combined to go 18-22 against the rest of the league.

That is the very definition of over-thinking things. A more relevant variable is how Green Bay slows itself down after getting big leads in the first half. If the Packers did not have the 10th-ranked scoring defense, this offense would gain and score more.
