The Green Bay Packers are well on their way to an undefeated season this year with a record of 10-0.
They seamlessly cruise past opponents and have not shown any signs of slowing down.
Led by arguably the best player in all of football in Aaron Rodgers, the Packers have no ceiling on how good they really can be.
They play mistake-free football, are getting solid on the defensive end and are establishing a running game.
They play well in all facets of the game, so is it possible for the Pack to finish not only the season undefeated, but also win the Super Bowl?
Yes, and here's why.
The main reason that the Packers are where they are at this moment is Aaron Rodgers.
The stats that Rodgers is putting up are plain ridiculous.
He has already thrown for over 3,000 yards and could possible pass Dan Marino’s single-season passing record of 5,084 yards.
He also is on pace to compete for the single-season record of 50 touchdown passes thrown by Tom Brady.
The fact is that Aaron Rodgers is on a level of his own in the NFL. He has taken the term elite quarterback to a whole new level.
His quarterback rating is a whopping 128.8, and while he throws touchdowns in bunches (31), he does not make mistakes, as he has only four interceptions on the season.
With Rodgers leading the way for the Packers, an undefeated season looks within their grasp.
The Packers defense is solid year-in and year-out but this year has started off a little different.
While they remain undefeated, they have some issues on the defensive end of the ball.
The Packers of the past stopped opposing offenses with the demeanor of a winning team. While they still have that winning demeanor, they have been less than perfect this season.
They are currently 30th in the league with yards allowed and 31st in passing yards allowed. While this isn't the stats you'd expect of an undefeated team, things are starting to look up for the defense.
They are finally starting to find their groove and have the talent to turn their defense back into the elite power they were last season.
The Packers are undefeated and have a defense that is getting better. Things are only looking up from here.
The Packers run game has not been very good the past few years, including this one. However, despite the injury bug that's bit them this year, they are starting to finally improve their ground game.
When Aaron Rodgers is running the offense, defenses will be concentrated on him and the load of receivers they have. This is where the run game can thrive.
With Ryan Grant and James Starks leading the way, the Packers are finding an identity in the run game.
If the Pack can continue to establish success on the ground, their offense will be as unstoppable as they come.
Whether it's because of the pure dominance of Rodgers or the skill set of the wide receivers, the Green Bay Packers have a lot of depth at the wideout position. Led by Greg Jennings, the Pack have a plethora of wide receivers that Rodgers can throw to.
Not only is the depth of the wide receivers fantastic, but each receiver plays a pivotal role in the offensive scheme.
They have leadership with Driver, a downfield threat with Nelson, a go-to guy with Jennings and a red-zone hog in Finley.
The combination of all of the weapons that Rodgers has to throw to is scary and it's showing no signs of stopping.
The season started off shaky for the offensive line of the Packers but they are getting into their midseason form and continuing to improve. While they let rushers get to Rodgers in the past, they are giving him more and more time in the pocket now.
This is the worst thing for a defense because even without time, Rodgers delivers strikes and now with the line getting more productive, there seems to be no limit for the Packers passing attack.
They are also getting better blocking for the run game, which is essential for the success of the Packers.
Rodgers is always going to do well, but the run game needs good blocking for success, and that will lead to an undefeated season.
While much of the credit goes to Rodgers and the talent around him, not many people see just how good Mike McCarthy is as a play caller.
He has kept defenses off guard throughout the season and knows exactly what to call in every situation.
McCarthy has turned the Packers offense into an elite power and, because of his mix of run and pass, he knows exactly how to exploit a defense.
So far, no defense has shown they have the power to stop the offense of the Packers, and some thanks has to go to McCarthy’s play calling.
The Green Bay Packers play virtually mistake-free.
Couple this with the fact that their defense has a nose for the ball and you have an undefeated team.
The Packers currently have a +12 turnover ratio and only seem to be getting more and more dominant.
With the defense getting stronger on a week-to-week basis and Aaron Rodgers refusing to throw an interception, the ability for the Packers to dominate the turnover game is unmatched.
They say turnovers are the game-changing moments in big games, and with the Packers dominance on the turnover front, an undefeated season is very foreseeable.
Don’t get me wrong. The Packers remaining schedule is tough, but they are also in midseason form and have faced tough competition on the way to 10-0.
They face the Lions twice, and while it seems like Stafford and the Lions offense can put up points in a hurry, they get into holes fast in the game, and the Packers are just the team to exploit that. Once the Packers have the lead, there is no way for a team to come back.
The Bears will be in trouble because they no longer have Cutler, so any chance they had at defeating the Packers has gone away with that injury.
The other game is against the New York Giants, which could pose some trouble for the Pack. They will undeniably pass them, though, on their way to an undefeated season.
There is no team that can compete in the NFC, so they can cruise in the playoffs, and it looks like there is no team that is dominant in the AFC, so ultimately the Packers will hoist the trophy at the end of the season.
This one may be a key factor in the Packers' dominance.
The one factor that the Packers have over any team is experience and especially experience in winning.
They have not lost in over a year and technically are already 19-0 dating back to last year.
The Packers experience may not do much during the regular season, but they will progress further while other teams falter in the playoffs.
Experience is one of the biggest factors in the postseason, and because the Packers are just too stubborn to lose, they won't.
The strength of the Packers is that they do not remain steady.
They may be 10-0 but they do not stop trying to find ways to get better and because of this they will go undefeated.
The effort that the Packers put in every week is something no other team in the league possesses, and the continuing progression shows every week.
The Packers are getting more powerful in every facet of the game, and they cannot lose.
They will cruise their way into the playoffs, dominate every team they face in the postseason, and make the Super Bowl a tough but decisive victory as they etch their names in NFL history.
