Rodgers Continues to have Success
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is having another monster season, and this might be his most impressive run during his hall of fame career. Rodgers has thrown for over 2,500 yards and 25 touchdowns this season, despite missing a number of key playmakers throughout the first ten weeks.
Wide receiver Davante Adams leads the team with 741 receiving yards and nine touchdowns, and he will look to challenge the Colts defense on Sunday. Green Bay has also been a solid running team, with Aaron Jones leading the way.
The Green Bay defense has given up almost 25 points per game this season, but that unit can also present some problems for opponents. Linebacker Za’Darius Smith has eight of the team’s 26 sacks through the first nine games.
The Packers want to put up a ton of points, and they are finally back to full-strength and will challenge the Colts defense.
Can Colts Score Enough?
The Indianapolis Colts have one of the best defensive units in the league, but this team must find a way to score more points. Indianapolis allows just 19.7 points per game, but facing the Green Bay Packers will be their toughest test of the season.
Indianapolis has racked up 20 sacks through nine games, and getting pressure on Aaron Rodgers will be key. The Colts can’t allow Rodgers to stand in the pocket and find his receivers all game.
Running the football has been a problem for the Colts as they are averaging just 110 rushing yards per game. Rookie running back Jonathan Taylor has started to pick things up, but a season-ending injury to Marlon Mack has hurt the rushing attack.
Quarterback Philip Rivers will need to play great in this game, and the Colts need to challenge the Packers’ secondary. Rivers has thrown for more than 2,300 yards this season, but he has also thrown seven costly interceptions.
