Quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ “Shhhhhh” campaign continued as the Green Bay Packers beat the Rams 30-20 in front of a St. Louis crowd full of Cheeseheads.
Rodgers was near perfect while completing 30 of his 37 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns. Last season’s MVP has thrown 16 touchdowns in his last four games.
What It Means: The Packers are now 4-3 and it’s really hard to stop talking about Rodgers. On the season, he’s completing right around 70 percent (183/262) of his passes with 19 touchdowns compared to only four interceptions. No reason to think he’s not back in the discussion for another MVP award. Considering he’s done this against four of NFL’s top five defenses (Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and St. Louis) is impressive. As long as the defense can continue to play well despite a myriad of injuries, the Packers should be in the frontrunners for another divisional championship.
