Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers has had his ups and downs

  • Packers vs. Vikings odds 2017: Green Bay betting favorite on road at rival Minnesota

She joined ESPN in 2017. And when the Packers returned to the practice field Wednesday to begin preparations for the Minnesota Vikings, the rookie was reminded that he couldn't have done it alone.

Altogether, this offense has weapons that can hurt the Packers, especially if they take the field without Morgan Burnett, the defense's Swiss Army knife, and Kevin King, the defense's youngest but arguably most reliable corner. "If he's got the ball in his hands you've got a chance to lose".

Somewhere, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer must be smiling. And as you will soon see, that's really been the exception and not the rule when it comes to this series between the star signal-caller for the Green Bay Packers and the rival Purple Gang.

"I've been in the National Football League 20-some years and I can't remember a guy that does the things that this guy does", Zimmer said. Athletically, he can still play the position with the best of them, but he can probably out think all of them.

Rodgers likes the twice-per-season chess match he gets to play with Zimmer.

He was 25 of 36 passing for 251 yards and three first-half touchdowns, two to Cole Beasley and one to Dez Bryant, who joined Hall of Famer Bob Hayes as the only Dallas receivers with at least 70 TD grabs.

Few quarterbacks are better at escaping pressure and moving to deliver the football with pinpoint accuracy. Bakhtiari's return would give Green Bay their entire preferred starting offensive line. The next-most is Atlanta's Matt Ryan with 31, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

The Dallas Cowboys were painfully reminded of that in Week 5. He sees it and they've got a good scheme. Well, a lot. And it's a double-edged sword for defenses. Experience in the offense and with the guys you're running with. "Don't let him have the ball".

As the week goes on, continue to check the current line, and spread at Sportsbook Review. "Or you're careful with him and then it's going to slow down your pass rush".

On Sunday, the most prolific touchdown thrower of the past four seasons padded his play-making resume with a fourth-quarter comeback that collectively cold-cocked 100,000 Cowboys fans at AT&T Stadium and thoroughly entertained FOX's national television audience. He faced them in a relief role in 2007 and also battled Minnesota in a 2012 playoff game.

Prescott looked the part of Rodgers, scrambling to set up big completions and running 21 yards on one play to help the Cowboys build a 21-6 lead. Rodgers' intangibles aside, the Vikings have plenty going in their favor as they try to reverse the trend. And somewhere Everson Griffen must be thinking, "That's all it took?" "Come out like Mike Tyson taking the fight to him". The Packers rookie running back, Aaron Jones, also made the most of his opportunities, rushing 19 times for 125 yards and a touchdown. But limiting his mobility is only one part of the equation. Since 2006, the Packers have scored 20-plus points against the Vikings in 19 of 22 regular-season games. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott rose to the occasion, much like he did when the teams faced off previous year in the Divisional Playoffs; this time, it was Prescott's team that took a commanding 21-6 lead in the second quarter, compared to when the Packers lead 21-3 in the playoffs. It's frustrating for any team to attempt to defend, but is brilliant to watch from afar.

The return of Mike Daniels and the emergence of Kenny Clark up front should help the Packers get a push and make things more hard for the Vikings quarterback-to-be. "He knows where the coverage is". We've talked a lot about that in here about the relationship and the chemistry that you have between quarterback and receiver. "I just work at it each and every week and get a better and better get off". "I didn't know what was going on". "You can't give them three dimensions".
