Aaron Rodgers

After a discernibly awful output against a great Buffalo defense, we got to see a game much closer to Aaron Rodgers’ standards.

Though he still wasn’t at his best, what Rodgers did was easily enough to bring about another win from the offense’s end. He completed 31 of his 40 passes for 318 yards and a late TD.

He finished with an 81.9 QBR on the day, fueled by a bundle of quick passes and heavy usage of his top two receivers (more on them later).

This was not surprising — or at least it shouldn’t have been — but it is nice to see a decent output from the Packers’ top guy.
