1. Aaron Rodgers will have another MVP season
Here’s a little fact for you: Aaron Rodgers has always won the league MVP award the season following a broken collarbone. OK — it’s only happened once. It’s a bit of a small sample size. But it could happen again.
Rodgers is still in the prime of his career, and would have been in the MVP running last season had it not been for his injury. He led the Packers to a 4-1 start to the year, throwing for 1,385 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions before getting hurt.
This might be Rodgers’ best supporting cast in some time.
As mentioned earlier in the article, the Packers have a strong running back room with Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones.
Rodgers also has two of the league’s top red zone receivers to throw to — Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham had a combined 16 red zone touchdowns last year.
Green Bay’s other new tight end, Marcedes Lewis, will also make a difference. Lewis was signed primarily for his blocking, but he’s also a big target in the red zone.
Along with a good offensive line, including one of the league’s premier left tackles, the key for the Packers’ offense is to stay healthy. If there aren’t too many injuries, Rodgers will be the favorite to win a third MVP award.
And playing at that level, the Green Bay Packers will have a great chance to win another Super Bowl.
