After watching game film of the Atlanta Falcons all season, the Green Bay Packers knew they would be able to throw the ball against this secondary. What they didn’t know is they would be able to run against as well. As long as it’s with Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has been leading the way with 200 yards through the air on 14-for-17 passing and has added 34 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown. He would have had another rushing touchdown but he fumbled at the goalline.
With the game tied and the Packers running backs unable to gain ground against the Falcons’ front four, Rodgers will continue to be a crucial part of the Packers offense. To put it into perspective, Rodgers leads the Packers with 34 yards rushing. The second-leading rusher is former Falcons practice squader, Dmitri Nance with one carry for zero yards.
Until the Falcons figure out a way to stop Rodgers, his big fantasy day will surely get bigger.
