Week 7: vs Carolina Panthers
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Aaron Rodgers has thrown six TDs and zero interceptions over the past two weeks, with three players earning double-digit targets during that time span: Jordy Nelson (19 for 10/173/2), Randall Cobb (11 for 8/92/2), and Davante Adams (12 for 7/88/1). Tight end Andrew Quarless handled the other available pass TD over the past two weeks, with seven targets for 4/30/1 receiving, but he is a marginal option compared to the top three wide receivers.
The Panthers' pass D has allowed four passing scores over the past two weeks, but has also generated four interceptions (33/43 for 320 net passing yards, two TDs and two interceptions for Andy Dalton last week; 28/36 for 262 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions for Jay Cutler two weeks ago - Cutler was sacked four times for -26 yards, while Dalton was dumped once for -3 yards). To date, the Panthers' secondary is ranked 20th in the NFL with an average of 252.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with 12 passing scores given out vs. seven interceptions (tied for fifth in the NFL) and 13 sacks (tied for 15th) generated so far.
Rodgers and company are on a tear - they should enjoy solid results against the so-so Panthers' D.
