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.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs MIN (3 / 5 / 22 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Matt Flynn entered into the game in the fourth quarter and immediately threw an interception because of course he did--he's Matt Flynn. On the play Flynn was forced from the pocket and scrambled to his right, and did a good job keeping his eyes downfield as he did so. Richard Rodgers was crossing the middle of the field heading towards the sideline where James Starks was engaged with safety Harrison Smith. Which is all well and good except you can see Rodgers was never getting that ball and Smith had a better shot at it. There's no reason for this ball to have been thrown--Starks' back was turned towards Flynn and he had no idea he needed to block Smith away from a play which was busted. Clearly he thought Flynn was running the ball and so he was just blocking Smith from tackling Flynn. The pass was an awful one and the ball should have been run, not thrown, by Flynn. The rest of the night was filled with mostly short passes which didn't allow Flynn to put himself into another bad situation.

2014 Week 7 vs CAR (0 / 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / -3 / 0 rush)

Backup Matt Flynn came into the game in the fourth quarter and only delivered two passes. One resulted in a drop by tight end Brandon Bostick while the other was a pass he had to throw away due to pressure. He was not asked to do anything more.
