Week 3 vs. SD
Receiving: 4 / 82 / 1 on 7 targets
In his first game action of the season, Jennings certainly didn't disappoint. He was targeted very early on a deep ball in the end zone that fell incomplete. Jennings was also targeted on an ill-advised pass in the end zone that was nearly intercepted. He then made a handful of receptions here and there over the next three quarters, but really saved his best for last. On a game-saving drive, Jennings streaked over the middle on a slant and hauled in a laser pass from Brett Favre between two defenders. Jennings took off untouched down the right side of the field for the 57 yard score (the eventual game-winner). The score gave Favre the 420th touchdown pass of his career, which tied Dan Marino on the all-time list.
Week 4 vs. MIN
Receiving: 3 / 43 / 1 on 6 targets
Jennings, like a handful Packers receivers, had many opportunities in the passing game today. Jennings was the most frequently targeted receiver deeper than ten yards, including his 16 yard touchdown. In addition to his six official targets, he was also the intended receiver on Brett Favre's first pass 60+ yards downfield that was intercepted by Darren Sharper. This play was called back on a defensive illegal contact penalty.
Week 5 vs. CHI
Receiving: 4 / 83 / 1 on 4 targets
Jennings looks all came in the first half, as he left the game temporarily with a shoulder injury, and wasn't targeted again upon his return. He was Favre's preferred deep target, with catches of 28 and 41 yards, the latter of which was a second quarter touchdown.
Week 6 vs. WAS
Receiving: 3 / 20 / 0 on 11 targets
Jennings led all Packers receivers with 12 targets. Despite the high number of passes thrown his way, he was only able to haul in three passes. Jennings did draw a pass interference penalty on CB Carlos Rogers and was the intended receiver on Favre's second interception.
Week 8 vs. DEN
Receiving: 6 / 141 / 1 on 8 targets
The first two passes intended for him fell incomplete, but Jennings would go on to grab the next six targets that came his way. On the night he averaged over 23 per catch and set season highs for both receptions and yards. His 82 yard touchdown catch to end the game will be remembered for a long time by the Green Bay Packers faithful.
Week 9 vs. KC
Receiving: 3 / 85 / 2 on 5 targets
Greg Jennings provided the deep threat in the Packers arsenal. Both of his touchdown catches came on plays where he was wide open. The first score came on a pass over the middle where he caught the ball inside the ten and put some moves on Chiefs defenders to score. The second score, which proved to be the game winner, came when he out ran the defensive backs on a post pattern. Jennings did have one bad play where he broke off a route that led to Favre's first interception on the opening Packers drive.
Week 10 vs. MIN
Receiving: 4 / 63 / 0 on 6 targets
Jennings was targeted almost as much as team leader Donald Driver on the afternoon, including two deep chances, but Jennings was able to haul in only one of those two chances. Like Driver, Jennings also had what could have been a touchdown go through his hands. Jennings finished with numbers identical to Driver for the game with four catches for 63 yards.
Week 11 vs. CAR
Receiving: 7 / 48 / 1 on 8 targets
Jennings caught seven passes for 48 yards and one touchdown. The touchdown pass was from four yards out. Jennings had one other catch that got the ball inside the Carolina 20 yard line.
Week 12 vs. DET
Receiving: 5 / 60 / 2 on 7 targets
With another big game, this one a two touchdown performance, Jennings' stat line again begs the question of who is truly the top receiving option for Green Bay. While Donald Driver outgained Jennings in targets (13-8), receptions (10-5), and yards (147-60), it was Jennings who was rewarded with the red zone looks and the touchdown advantage (2-0). In fact, despite Driver's heavy involvement in the passing game, Jennings fantasy point total likely exceeds Driver's in nearly all league setups. In addition to the two touchdowns, Jennings was also thrown to in the end zone on an incompletion in the beginning of the fourth quarter, while Driver was never looked to in the end zone. Still, despite this sounding like a negative comparison between the two players, think of it more in terms of a beneficial setup for both players. Each is able to focus on what he does best: Driver moves the ball slowly but effectively down the field and over the middle, while Jennings can hit for a quick strike from anywhere on the field and use his big body to get open in small spaces in the red zone. And with a quarterback chucking it up 41 times and a known commodity drawing the opposition's coverage on the other side of the field, both Jennings and Driver are in prime positions for success.
Week 13 vs. DAL
Receiving: 5 / 87 / 1 on 7 targets
Jennings made his first catch on a short pass and then made a great move and took it 43 yards late in the second quarter. He caught a pass on the Dallas two yard line and was able to scramble into the end zone for an 11 yard touchdown catch. He finished the half with three catches for 63 yards. He caught a 15 yard pass for a first down early in the fourth quarter and would add another catch for nine yards late in the game. Jennings led the Packers with 87 yards receiving.
Week 14 vs. OAK
Receiving: 2 / 100 / 1 on 4 targets
Jennings was pretty quiet early on in this game. On his first target on Green Bay's second drive, he drew a pass interference penalty on CB Nnamdi Asomugha. Jennings' next target came in the second quarter, but the pass fell incomplete on a short pass down by the goal line. His first reception went for a 20 yard gain on a third and 18 play that took place in the third quarter. Jennings' only other grab went for an 80 yard touchdown. On the play, he made a leaping catch and jogged into the end zone after his defender fell down.
Week 15 vs. STL
Receiving: 4 / 66 / 1 on 6 targets
Jennings' day got of to a bad start as his first catch went for a loss of three yards. His second and third receptions were more productive as he took the Brett Favre passes for gains of 14 and 11 yards respectively. Jennings' last catch of the game went for a 44 yard touchdown grab which was his 12th scoring reception of the year. He was the intended target on both of Favre's interceptions.
Week 16 vs. CHI
Receiving: 3 / 42 / 0 on 5 targets
Jennings opportunities were limited. Brett Favre's struggles with the conditions, and the teams general lack of ability to move the ball prevented as many passing attempts as the Packers usually enjoy. The Packers also did not try to stretch the field with deep passes, limited Jennings chances for a big play.
Week 19 vs. SEA
Receiving: 6 / 71 / 2 on 8 targets
Greg Jennings caught six passes for 71 yards, and two touchdowns on eight targets from Brett Favre. Jennings started the Packers scoring when he beat single coverage down the left side, and Favre got it to him for the 15 yard score. After a Ryan Grant touchdown tied the game, Favre again hit Jennings for a two yard touchdown in the early second quarter to take the lead. The Packers were not forced to pass the ball often, but when they did it seemed as though Favre favors Jennings for big plays, and around the end zone.
Week 20 vs. NYG
Jennings only caught one of his five targets for 14 yards. He drew cornerback Sam Madison in coverage, and Madison did a great job shutting down the dynamic second year pro. One of Jennings' targets was in the endzone, but Brett Favre over threw him.
