When your All-Pro quarterback's stock is improving, you know things are going good. That's what's happening for the Green Bay Packers, and the rest of the league needs to take notice.
Aaron Rodgers is coming off a spectacular performance in Week 7, passing for 260 yards and three touchdowns. He did it without injured wide receivers James Jones and Randall Cobb, and lost starting tight end Jermichael Finley before the end of the game.
What Rodgers is doing better right now than he's ever done before is raise the level of his teammates' play. He did it last week with wide receiver Jarrett Boykin, and he'll have to do it again this week with the bevy of new targets he'll have on the field.
With Rodgers playing so well, the Packers will be one of the most difficult teams in the league to beat going forward.
