Packers Rout 49ers With Yet Another Offensive Outburst: Game Balls
Coming off a devastating loss to the Atlanta Falcons that could have made the its position in the playoffs a whole lot clearer, the Packers rebounded nicely in a 34-16 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Reminiscent of the Vikings game, the Packers’ offense started off slow but exploded over the next three quarters to put the game out of reach. Here are game balls to hand out from Sunday’s victory.
Aaron Rodgers: After a sluggish start to the season, Rodgers has picked things up and has thrown himself into the MVP race. He was excellent on Sunday, going 21-for-30 with 298 yards and three touchdowns. He also scrambled for 39 more yards on the ground and it marked the fifth straight game Rodgers has not thrown an interception. It makes it all that more impressive that Rodgers has put up these numbers with basically no running game, and Sunday’s win can be attributed to his impressive performance.
Greg Jennings: This is getting out of control. Jennings picks up his fourth straight game ball from me, finishing Sunday with six catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns. There is no hotter tandem in the NFL right now than Rodgers and Jennings, and he continues to put up big numbers in the absence of Jermichael Finley.
