Week 5: vs St. Louis Rams
All WR vs STL
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Against the punch-less 49ers, Green Bay didn't need more than 17 points to win by two TDs - accordingly, Aaron Rodgers turned in a quiet afternoon last weekend, with 22/32 for 224 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown. He found tight end Richard Rodgers for the score (six targets for 5/45/1) and seems to be working Richard Rodgers into the mix more as the season progresses. Randall Cobb looked good for the first half, but appeared to aggravate his sore right shoulder during the contest and was essentially a non-factor after halftime. Cobb owners will want to monitor his practice participation later this week - also, Davante Adams continues to be sidelined due to his injured ankle and doesn't seem close to returning just yet, another situation to monitor heading into Week Five contests.
The Rams' pass D threw the brakes on Carson Palmer and company's scoring last weekend, holding Palmer to one passing TD (though he did still rack up a healthy 29/46 for 352 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown). Two weeks ago the Steelers managed 25/30 for 230 net passing yards, zero TDs and one interception thrown despite losing Ben Roethlisberger part way through the game. To date, the Rams are ranked 14th in the NFL averaging 235.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with three passing scores given out vs. three interceptions (tied for 13th in the league) and 17 sacks (tied for second in the NFL) generated.
On balance this looks like a neutral matchup for the home-team Packers.
