Green Bay vs Jacksonville

The Packers are enjoying the fruits of a return-to-MVP-form season from Aaron Rodgers. Operating with extreme precision and a knack for the big downfield throw, Rodgers has topped 280 yards and thrown 3+ touchdowns in 6 of 8 outings. Last week’s romp over the 49ers was a clear reminder of what he’s capable of in a pass-centric attack. Davante Adams continues to lead the show - he’s on a 16-game pace of 2,045 yards and 26 touchdowns - but Rodgers has several dynamic toys to play with. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Robert Tonyan Jr, and the running backs are more than capable of striking big situationally.

The Jaguars simply can’t stop anyone through the air; virtually every opponent thus far has posted an efficient day. Quarterbacks are putting up 8.5 yards per attempt and 285 per game in this matchup, and 5 of 8 have thrown multiple touchdowns. It comes as no surprise, with the entire unit uprooted and in the midst of a full rebuild. The Jaguars boast real talent at cornerback, with Sidney Jones and rookie C.J. Henderson flashing bursts of high-quality play. But they’re not consistently strong, and teammates Tre Herndon and Chris Claybrooks have been among the league’s weakest in coverage. That’s allowed opposing receivers to feast down the field, with 9 of them topping 75 yards on the day. There’s no shame in giving up a long ball here and there, especially to a Kenny Golladay or a Will Fuller V, but it comes like clockwork for this unit. If there’s a strong point here, it’s against tight ends - they’ve shut down just about all comers thus far. But there’s little downfield support to keep dynamic wideouts in check. If the Packers come out of the gates aggressively, Rodgers and his men will find plenty of big-play opportunities.
