The Packers are undefeated after four games. Here is their report card one-fourth of the way into the 2020 season.

The Green Bay Packers have come out strong to start their 2020 campaign.

They are currently undefeated and one of the top teams in the league. They are one of six undefeated teams. The offense has been red-hot while the defense has been inconsistent.

On this report card, we will grade the Packers’ offense, defense, and special teams.


The Packers have the best offense in football right now. According to Football Outsiders, the Packers have the most efficient offense in the league, leading the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks.

The offense ranks fourth in passing yards per game (294.8) and fourth in rushing yards per game (150.8). Their 152 total points (38 points per game) lead the league, as do their yards per play (6.8) and percentage of drives ending in a score (64.1 percent).

If your offense can score on 64 percent of their drives, something is definitely clicking. JK Scott has punted just seven times in four games, the least in the league.

Aaron Rodgers is having another great year. Many people had written him off, especially after the Packers had used their first-round pick on quarterback Jordan Love. He is completing 70.5 percent of his passes and has thrown for 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Oh, and he is leading the NFL in QBR (ESPN’s quarterback rating) at 92.8. While Rodgers is looking amazing again, I think a lot of credit has to go to Matt LaFleur. LaFleur has his play-calling mojo going right now.

The Packers have been without Davante Adams for a little more than two games and this offense hasn’t skipped a beat. When Adams was out for the New Orleans game, Allen Lazard stepped up huge. When Lazard and Adams were both out against Atlanta, tight end Robert Tonyan broke out for a three-touchdown game. No matter who is on the field, LaFleur and Rodgers make this offense work.

In the running game, Aaron Jones is enjoying another great season. Whether it’s on the ground or through the air, he is producing. When he isn’t on the field it’s Jamaal Williams. He has also been having a really nice season. These two backs are going to make it hard to keep both of them at the end of the season because they are both in line to get paid.

When this offense is back to full-strength, the rest of the NFL will be in trouble.

Grade: A+ (Can I give an A++?)
