ITEM ADDED TO CART
Despite a rough stretch, losing the last two games by a total of six points, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense have done quite well considering all the position moves and changes they’ve had to make.
Rodgers has now totaled over 300 yards for the fourth straight week after not totaling 300 yards through his first four weeks. He has stepped up his ground game and rushed six times in each of the last two contests, accounting for 103 of his total 199 rushing yards through all eight games this season.
It’s actually quite remarkable that Rodgers has only given up five interceptions through eight games, only two of which were in the past four games, while he’s maintained such a high volume of attempts on a weekly basis.
Rodgers has now recorded 20 touchdowns. That makes the Packers QB the third highest rank in the NFL, only trailing behind Matt Ryan (21) and Drew Brees (23).
All of this success in the midst of completely reorganizing the offense, having to make up so much with the loss of Eddie Lacy. Still, everyone has stepped up and filled in as a piece of the puzzle, giving Rodgers as many options as possible.
It’s been a tough stretch, but there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic of the high ceiling Rodgers’ new offense can do for Green Bay the rest of the season.
