Review~ the Packers pounded the JV-squad San Fran put on the field last Thursday night, as they should have. Rodgers played his best game, probably since the Dallas game last season. Statistically he was lights out. Davante Adams did solidify himself as a top 5 WR (if not the best) in the NFL. Rodgers still throws off his back foot from time-to-time, which didn’t come anywhere near haunting him, but easily could (and likely will) come January. There’s not much to really cover, the defense was fine and the offense moved the ball at will. Much should be the same tomorrow vs. Jacksonville, and Green Bay has a chance to really solidify some things to gain serious momentum moving to the 2nd half of the season.
Preview~ enter, possibly, the worst team in the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Much like the week 8 match-up vs. Minnesota, Green Bay should have no issue with the Jags. Then again…

As you can see, the Jaguars are awful in every category, and they’re an awful team. The Packers have a chance to get their defensive ranking up in the top 10, for yards at least. The points are most indicative of a true D. As of right now Green Bay’s defense is average to below average. If the Jaguars have any shot, it’s winning the turnover battle by at least 2 or 3, or a couple of special team plays that give them free points. So, since there’s not much to say, look for the Packers to get rookie A.J. Dillon going and continue to conserve Aaron Jones.
