Everybody did not seriously think the Packers would just give up on the season and not even attempt to win this season, right?
Green Bay still has the best quarterback in the NFL and he found his old pal Jordy Nelson on three separate occasions in the endzone.
While Jermichael Finley cannot catch a cold these days, James Jones is having a bunch of house calls for six.
Greg Jennings may not be back for at least a few more weeks since he does not want to return until his groin is 100%, but Rodgers looks just fine without him.
Jones has reaped the benefits and Nelson is still out there to prove that he is a number one wide receiver in the NFL.
It simply does not matter for Aaron Rodgers since he is more than capable of carrying this team on his back. After all, he is arguably the toughest quarterback to prepare for in the league and he was out to prove a point last week against the Texans.
Not only did he not disappoint, he made a bold statement with his 6 passing TD! The dude is a superstar for a reason and even against a solid Rams defense, he should be able to come through in the clutch.
If he does, then Sam Bradford better put together his best performance of the season. Steven Jackson has been in a timeshare with Daryl Richardson, and while fantasy owners do not approve this can only help the Rams offense out.
Danny Amendola (colloarbone) is still out so Brandon Gibson and Chris Givens would have to perform well against the Packers secondary. While they have given up their fair share of yards, bank on this contest being a bit more low-scoring than some may anticpate.
Rodgers will be lucky to throw for half as many TD this week, especially since the Rams will be hungry for an upset. Chris Long leads a defense that is ferocious up front with quickness and strength. While the NFC North received a bunch of hype heading into the season, all of a sudden it is the NFC West that has a ton production.
Loaded with defenses, the Rams should not be the last one mentioned. Their offense has been productive in terms of yardage, but they need to finish drives and not rely on Greg Zurlein to boot 60-plus yarders every Sunday.
They are still not match in the fourth quarter, but it should be the GB defense and special teams that gives them the victory.
