Week 2: vs New York Jets

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Aaron Rodgers and company kept it close in Seattle through a half last week, but fell apart under the Legion of Boom's relentless pressure in the second half, eventually losing 16-36. Rodgers threw 23/33 for 189 yards, one TD and one interception during the game, taking three sacks for -14 yards (with four other QB hits absorbed). Jordy Nelson (14 targets for 9/83/0 receiving) and Randall Cobb (nine for 6/58/1 receiving) handled most of the passes for Rodgers, while Andrew Quarless was the top tight end as a receiver last week, snagging 3/26/0 out of four targets. We'll see if the Packers can get it going against the Jets at home in Lambeau Field this Sunday. The Jets had 41 sacks a year ago, tied for 13th in the NFL, and were 22nd in the NFL a year ago, averaging 247 yards passing allowed per game, with 26 TDs given up vs. 13 interceptions generated. They opened the 2014 campaign beating up on rookie Derek Carr in his first NFL start, holding Oakland to 20/32 for 133 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions, with two sacks for -18 yards generated. Carr completed his first seven throws, but then had 13/25 the rest of the way as he was baptized by fire. Rodgers isn't a rookie with marginal talent around him - the Packers are a much bigger challenge for New York compared to the Raiders. We think the Packers have the edge in this matchup.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs SEA (14 / 9 / 83 / 0 rec)

With Jarrett Boykin across the field occupying Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman, Jordy Nelson was frequently the option on the opposite side of the offense. Nelson was targeted 14 times, often on shorter routes and despite the absence of Sherman, often was well covered. He and quarterback Aaron Rodgers timing seemed to be just a bit off as well--something we saw a lot of in the preseason. Many of Rodgers' passes were just a bit off--too high, too short, too early, behind. One of those resulted in a momentum-changing interception. On the pass, Nelson ran a ten-yard slant route from the left side of the formation. He had good separation on the defender and was really wide open. All Rodgers had to do was deliver the ball cleanly, but led Nelson too much and the ball deflected off the receiver's outstretched hands. Nelson said after the game that he should have caught it as he got his hands on it, but it was a poor pass and one of several by Rodgers. Overall, Nelson made some excellent catches

Packers | New career high for Jordy Nelson (Sun Sep 14, 08:04 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson hauled in nine passes for 209 yards and an 80-yard touchdown in the Week 2 win against the New York Jets.

Our View: Nelson burned a Jets secondary that was way undermanned at cornerback and didn't get to Aaron Rodgers enough to hold him and his #1 receiver down. It should be another big week for Nelson at Ford Field against the Lions in Week 3.

Packers | Jordy Nelson busy in Week 1 (Fri Sep 5, 09:24 AM) - Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson had nine catches for 83 yards and was targeted 14 times in Week 1.

Our View: Nelson and Aaron Rodgers picked on Byron Maxwell, but there weren't any big plays to be had downfield, and a ball glanced off of Nelson's hands for an interception that pretty much salted this game away for Seattle. Nelson owners survived this one and they should have a better time of it vs. the Jets depleted secondary next week.
