Aaron Rodgers provided football fans with a vintage performance in the Green Bay Packers’ Week 16 throttling of the Tennessee Titans. The veteran passer completed 27-of-38 balls for 342 yards and three touchdowns while taking just one sack.
Rodgers’ passer rating in Week 16 was an impressive 125.1—but he didn’t stop there. He added four carries for 11 yards and a touchdown. Mr. Discount Double-Check has thrown for 633 yards, run for 25 more and accounted for seven total touchdowns without turning the ball over in his last two games.
He’s one of several offensive players that are revving up their yardage-churning engines at just the right time: the end of the regular season. Guys like Marshawn Lynch and Dez Bryant may be propelling their respective teams into the playoffs, and if they continue their current production, their squads will be a tough out in January.
