The Green Bay Packers were able to beat the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12, meaning they’ve now swept the NFC West during the 2021 campaign – which is widely considered to be the toughest division in football.

The team played well in all three phases of the game.

Let’s give out some grades for the 36-28 win over Matthew Stafford and Co.

Packers Offensive Grade: A-

The Packers’ offense in Week 12 was very good, despite not having a very good ground game. The offense had no turnovers and when they were in rhythm, they had a good chance of scoring. Even though the team punted five times, there were enough big plays and scoring to warrant the grade.

Individual Grades:

  • Randall Cobb: A-
  • Aaron Rodgers: A-
  • Davante Adams: A-
  • Billy Turner: B+
  • AJ Dillon: B
  • Marquez Valdes Scantling: B
  • Royce Newman: C-
  • Aaron Jones: D-
  • Yosh Nijman: D-

Packers Defensive Grade: B+

After a bit of an off-week in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings, the Packers’ defense got back to their play-making ways that have filled this season. Most of the yardage was given up on just a few misstep plays, and I think it’s quite impressive that they held the Rams to one of their lower point totals of the season.

Individual Grades:

  • Rasul Douglas: A
  • Krys Barnes: A
  • Kenny Clark: B+
  • Rashan Gary: B+
  • Eric Stokes: B-
  • Henry Black: C+
  • De’Vondre Campbell: C+
  • Adrian Amos: C+
  • Dean Lowry: D-

Packers Special Teams Grade: C+

Can the Packers go one week without a special teams blunder? I love Mason Crosby as much as the next Packers fan, but he’s getting hard to defend because he leads the league in missed kicks currently. Also, I really wish the team had a good return man. At least we have Corey Bojorquez.

Individual Grades:

  • Corey Bojorquez: A+
  • Mason Crosby: B-
  • Amari Rodgers: C
  • Randall Cobb: C-
