1. Davante Adams
In the week leading up to the game, Aaron Rodgers was leading the charge for Davante Adams to get more chances. After only having four catches on four targets against the Broncos, Rodgers felt not enough was being done to get the ball to Adams.
That changed in this game. Adams finished the game with 10 catches for 180 yards. He was forced out of the game in the fourth quarter with a toe injury, and if he hadn’t, the end result might have been different. As soon as he did, the offense bogged down in the red zone and was unable to score a touchdown on their final two drives down only by seven.
Making Adams the centerpiece of the gameplan proved to be a wise idea. The passing game seemed to finally find a rhythm and took advantage of a short-handed Eagles secondary.
Adams seemed to be able to do whatever he wanted against Philly. He worked inside, outside and even out of the backfield during the game. It didn’t matter. The only thing that stopped him was the injury to his toe.
The team may have caught a break as it appears the injury is minor and time missed will be minimal. That’s great news because the Packers will need Adams if they want to stand a chance against the Cowboys.
