Week 8: at New Orleans Saints
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Aaron Rodgers has thrown 43/64 for 519 yards, six TDs and zero interceptions over the past two weeks, relying heavily on his wide receivers. Jordy Nelson (21 targets for 13/187/2 receiving) and Randall Cobb (14 for 11/179/2) have both handled two TDs during that time span, while Davante Adams (nine for 7/98/1) and Andrew Quarless (six for 3/20/1) have found pay-dirt as well. The Packers' passing attack is humming along quite nicely at the season's midway point.
The Saints' pass D is ranked 28th in the NFL averaging 270.5 net yards allowed per game, with 11 passing scores given up vs. three interceptions (tied for 24th in the NFL) and nine sacks (tied for 25th) generated to date. They are sub-par just about any way you slice it when it comes to pass D this year. Matthew Stafford rang up 27/40 for 285 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions in a come-from-behind win last week (three sacks for -14 yards taken), while Mike Glennon managed to take the Saints to OT in Week 5 (19/32 for 248 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown, with one sack taken for -1 yards).
This is a great matchup for the Packers despite being on the road this weekend.
