Aaron Rodgers- The Green Bay Packers escaped Baltimore with a 31:30 victory over the Ravens on Sunday. Ultimately, 2020 MVP Aaron Rodgers made more plays than the man who replaced 2019 MVP Tyler Huntley. Aaron Rodgers continued his climb into the late season. He was 23 of 31 passing for 268 yards and three touchdowns, good for a 132.2 passer rating. He's trained twice in the last four weeks, throwing 13 touchdown passes vs. He was really good, but not great; he missed Davante Adams early with a deep shot and Allen Lazard late, which should have been the final blow. Adams had six team receptions, but it was a team effort because the Ravens were out to limit the damage he could do to their decimated secondary. So Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught five passes for 98 yards, and the tight end Marcedes Lewis, Josiah Deguara and Tyler Davis combined seven receptions for 78 yards. That's two weeks in a row great productions from the tight ends. Adams, Valdes-Scantling, and Jones had touchdown receptions; Adams has scored five points in the last four games. It's easy to focus on the player throwing the soccer ball, but 55 percent of the yards came after the catch and Deguara had the only drop (one from Lazard was cleared by a penalty). Watching Lewis run the ball is like watching the old school Tecmo Bowl with helpless defenders ricocheting off him. By our count, he broke four tackles. Rodgers was fired three times; one of them was a 0 yard scramble. Otherwise, the Green Bay blockers had prevailed against Baltimore's conservative defenses. The Ravens run defense is one of the best in the NFL. And apart from the absence of defensive lineman Calais Campbell, that group was in full strength. So Jones, AJ Dillon, and Lazard's 21 rushs for 85 yards were a good day at the office. Jones was the hot hand this week so he had 13 carries for 58 yards compared to seven carries for 22 yards for Dillon. He forcibly missed three tackles and had 30 yards from contact. That would be the key to the game, said coach Matt LaFleur last week, and this group has delivered. The left side of Jon Runyan and Yosh Nijman did a good job and Lewis continues to thrive in a longer season. On Jones ‘best run of the day, an 11-yarder on the opening drive of the third quarter, Nijman and Lewis opened the lane. Huntley started in Jackson's place and was great. He completed 28 of 40 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns, good for a 99.5 rating. Tight End Mark Andrews was a one-man wrecking ball. He caught 10 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns. He had six receptions for 95 yards and both scores in the first half and three catches for 29 yards during the late rally. Most of the damage was directed against the Safety Darnell Savage, who was a day late and a dollar short, especially in the first 30 minutes. Based on PFF's best guess for coverage responsibility, Andrews caught 5-of-7 targets for 94 yards and both scores against Savage. However, Savage interrupted a third down pass early in the fourth quarter and diagnosed the two-point play to save the game. On the other hand, the Packers did an excellent job against everyone else. Star receiver Marquise Brown caught 10 of 14 passes for only 43 yards. The argument was extraordinary. For example, PFF charged Eric Stokes seven receptions, but he only gave up 35 yards. Too often he extended the plays and escaped the pocket of the outer linebackers. Of his 73 rushing yards, 51 were scrambles. On the final drive, Preston Smith stormed into the left tackle Alejandro Villanueva and gave Huntley 15 yards free passage. Green Bay entered the game after scoring the most rushing yards from quarterbacks and certainly not showing any progress against the Ravens. The Ravens rushed for 143 yards. After taking Huntley's scrambles out of the equation, there were 19 pure runs for 82 yards (4.3 average). Latavius ​​Murray made the heavy lift 48 yards for seven carries. Otherwise the handling was good. The Packers certainly missed out on the standout Kenny Clark, but Tyler Lancaster played well over the extended season. De'Vondre Campbell had 10 tackles but had better days. The Green Bay Special Teams got off to a thrilling start when cornerback Rasul Douglas kicked off the 23rd. Later in the first quarter, Amari Rodgers's 35-yard kickoff return was negated by a penalty against linebacker Isaiah McDuffie. Duvernay later broke a couple of tackles on a kickoff return to the 37, the Packers escaped disaster by not setting up a doggie kickoff, and long snapper Steven Wirtel was responsible for delaying the game on the final punt when he didn't managed to get the ball in time. Green Bay's starting field position was the 17.8-yard line when the Ravens started five times, and each time it was just under 25. In six Packers kickoffs, Baltimore's field position was 27.0. This is a first down for every kickoff exchange. In the past two weeks, Mason Crosby has done all 12 kicks - 10 extra points and two short field goals. The difficulty level on all of these kicks was low, but this group needs to feel better after a tough series of games. A common theme was countermeasures that deviate from the script when compared to seasonal trends. So it stands to reason that it took LaFleur and Rodgers some time to figure things out. With six ball possession from the end of the first quarter to the beginning of the fourth quarter, they scored four touchdowns and one field goal. Defensively, the Packers always played a mile from the Ravens' swift receivers and couldn't keep Huntley in their pockets. But Crosby made his kicks and disasters were averted.
