The Green Bay Phoenix aren't a team I want to get behind in their current form, but this is a game where they can finally breathe a bit. The Oakland Golden Grizzlies are one of the worst defensive teams in the country and they've gotten lit up whenever playing decent competition. If Green Bay can't get the job done here, it's going to be a long, long season. In a near pick em, I'll lean toward the Green Bay Phoenix getting the job done at home.
