Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers QB
In Saint Louis on Sunday, Aaron Rodgers once again proved that he is the best in the league. Facing a stingy Rams defense, the former MVP went 30-for-37 as he threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns.
His 132.2 passer rating led the league this week and he topped the charts again with 30 completions. What makes his achievement all the more renowned is that the Rams are ranked 14th in the NFL when defending the pass.
But the main reason why Rodgers is the most valuable to his team this week is because the Packers could not have won without him. They got little to no run support as Alex Green posted only 35 yards on 20 carries. Randall Cobb broke a big run for 19 yards and fan favorite John Kuhn had three carries for 16 yards, but Green Bay was going nowhere on the ground.
If one was to take Rodgers out of the equation, I don’t think the Pack would leave Saint Louis with a win. The fact that the A-Rod was able to get the win for his team, and look prolific while doing so, is enough to garner him a MVP trophy to add to a growing collection.
