From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): No one is immune from down games, not even Nelson. He'll be just fine coming out of the Packers' bye, nothing to sweat here.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs MIA (16 / 9 / 107 / 1 rec)

Nelson played outstanding yet again and is clearly the go-to guy in the Packers offense and the player Rodgers looks to when the Packers need a first down. Nelson put up big numbers but could have had an even bigger day but for the Miami pass rush. On one play, Nelson was wide open over the middle but a Miami lineman was able to get his hand on the ball at the line of scrimmage to deflect the ball. On two other plays, Nelson had separation but early pressure forced Rodgers to throw inaccurately in Nelson's direction. Nelson also had a beautiful diving grab for three yards on a crucial 4th down play in the 3rd quarter that did not count as the Packers instead accepted a defensive holding call on the other side of the field. Nelson's 9-yard touchdown came on the first drive of the game. With the Dolphins in zone, Nelson raced past the CB on a slant and the Dolphins LB bit hard on play action leaving Nelson wide open across the middle for an easy throw and catch. Two of Nelson's biggest plays came back-to-back in the middle of the 4th quarter with the Packers backed up deep in their own territory. On the first, facing 3rd-and-9, Rodgers rolled right and connected with Nelson deep down the right sideline for 22 yards. The next play, Rodgers found Nelson open over the middle for a 14-yard gain. The two plays finally got the Packers offense rolling again and sparked the comeback. Nelson also had arguably the biggest play of the game as the Packers faced 4th-and-10 from midfield with about a minute remaining. Nelson ran an out route and created plenty of separation and Rodgers put it on the money for an 18-yard-gain down the right sideline.

2014 Week 7 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 80 / 1 rec)

While it may seem like Nelson didn't do much, the truth is that the game got out of hand so quickly that he didn't need to. Nelson's first target was actually an interception which was called back because the defense was offsides. Normally when quarterback Aaron Rodgers sees the flag, he takes a shot downfield. In this instance, the throw was way off and high, and Nelson couldn't make a play. Nelson's first official target was much more effective, and resulted in a 59-yard touchdown. On the play, Nelson ran a simple deep fade down the sideline and easily got behind the coverage. Panthers safety Roman Harper stepped up to make a play but Nelson absolutely juked him out of his shoes and then scored easily. After that the Panthers played off Nelson so they wouldn't get burned long, though at times the 10-yard cushions they gave him just gave him free yards. Overall it was somewhat of a quiet day, but Nelson looked as effective as ever.

2014 Week 8 vs NO (5 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

In what was his worst game of this season--and the first time was kept out of the end zone since Week 3--Nelson was blanketed by the Saints coverage and never really found a way to break free. A few times he was able to make a great catch using his body to ward off a defender, but for the most part he never really found a way to get open. Once quarterback Aaron Rodgers pulled his hamstring and the Saints really started bringing the pressure, Nelson disappeared.

Packers | Jordy Nelson finds end zone (Sun Oct 19, 01:15 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught a 59-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 7 game.

Our View: The Panthers pass defense can't cover well and they can't tackle effectively either. They are going to be a matchup to target at least until Greg Hardy returns, which may not even be this season.
