Green Bay Packers
St. Louis Rams
It was a win the Packers needed coming off a momentum-changing victory a week ago, and with Aaron Rodgers once again playing at the top of his game, Green Bay beat the Rams in St. Louis.
Five things we learned from the Packers' 30-20 win:
1. Rodgers is back.
Rodgers didn't look like the reigning NFL MVP through the first five games this season. He was still performing like an elite, top-10 quarterback, but it wasn't the Rodgers who helped the Packers to 15 wins while leading the league in scoring. Green Bay's Week 6 win in Houston was a breakthrough game for Rodgers, who played with an intense focus level intent on proving to critics that the Packers' offense had not fallen off as much as it appeared. Rodgers' six touchdown passes and no interceptions against the Texans needed a strong follow-up performance, and he delivered.
Rodgers completed 30 of 37 attempts with three touchdown passes and no interceptions in St. Louis for a passer rating of 132.2. Wit...

GREEN BAY, Wis. A matchup with the St. Louis Rams is not an easy win like it had been in recent years. The Rams were one of the NFL's worst teams, winning only 15 games over the past five seasons combined. That is, of course, as many games as the Packers won just last year alone. But with St. Louis handing the team over to new head coach Jeff Fisher, the Rams have the same record...

The depth on the Packers' roster, as put together...
It didn't sound like a road game as Packers fans flooded St. Louis, but Green Bay put on a strong performance away from Lambeau Field and won a second consecutive game for the first time this season.
