Aaron Rodgers continues to impress, though his teammates will say that it’s just Aaron being Aaron. He is (not so quietly) making his case for MVP, adding three more touchdowns at Lambeau on Sunday afternoon.

With only three interceptions on the year (all three coming at the hands of his own receivers deflecting the pass), Rodgers is cruising to record numbers.

Rodgers is careful with the football, a breath of fresh air for Packers fans who had to “take the good with the bad” when the ol’ gunslinger was under center. Now, Rodgers’ philosophy of “if it isn’t ours, it’s nobody’s” is keeping the Packers at the head of the class every year in the NFC North, the conference and the league.

Rodgers continued his assault with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, both racking up over 100 yards on the day. He involved rookie Davante Adams (quickly becoming a favorite target and the solid #3 receiver over Boykin), and both tight ends Quarless and Rodgers.

Lacy was a beast in the passing game again, giving Rodgers confidence to check the ball down instead of having to extend every play.
