3. Rodgers, Adams remain unstoppable
It didn’t matter who was covering Adams. Not even when it was Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay. Adams’ All-Pro-level season continued as he caught 10 of 12 targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers threw three more touchdown passes — including the 400th of his career — to maintain his case for the MVP award.
Here’s a little perspective on just how good these two have been in 2020:
In 12 games, Rodgers has 3,395 yards and 36 touchdowns with four interceptions. He already has 10 more touchdown passes than all of last season in four fewer games. Rodgers is on pace to finish the year with 4,526 yards (second-most in his career), 48 touchdowns (career-best), and five interceptions (tied for third-fewest in his career).
How about Adams?
The Packers’ star receiver now has over 1,000 yards in a season for just the second time. And he’s achieved that in only 10 games. This season, Adams has 1,029 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 102.9 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game.
Adams is on pace for 1,440 yards and 18 touchdowns (both career-bests), despite missing two games through injury.
Defenses have no answer. This combination will be key for the Packers as they search for another Super Bowl title.
