Green Bay vs LA Rams
The Packers passing offense is like a two-man show with a tremendous supporting cast. It is led by what likely will be the MVP in Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams who had an unbelievable season amassing 1,374 yards on just 14 games played. The Packers are not an offense that is going to come out and throw 40 times in a game, as they throw the ball just 32.4 times per game this season, which is the ninth-fewest in the NFL, but have the ninth-most passing yards per game averaging 246 per game. The reason for the success is largely driven by how efficient this passing attack is, as they complete 70.2% of their passes (second in the NFL), and are averaging 8.2 yards-per-attempt (third in the NFL). If there is one concern, it would be at the tackle spot as David Bakhtiari and Rick Wagner will both miss this game leaving the Packers to likely have to start Jared Veldheer who was signed off the Colts practice squad this week.
The Rams secondary will make for one of the most intriguing matchups of the year as we have the MVP and one of the most efficient offenses, facing off against the league’s best pass defense. Led by Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey, the Rams are a shut-down unit that is allowing the fewest fantasy points per game in the NFL and the second-fewest passing yards per game. The way to beat the Rams is through tight ends and running backs as they are allowing just 129 yards to opposing wide receivers, which is the fewest in the NFL and is 11 yards per game fewer than the second-best team. The big question will be the pass rush, as the Rams had the second-most sacks in the NFL this season and had four sacks last week and if they can pressure Aaron Rodgers who was sacked just 21 times (third-fewest in the NFL), they hold this lineup in check.
