Aaron Rodgers on what’s clicked with this year’s Packers offense
The Green Bay Packers have looked impressive in the early stages of the season thus far. The team led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers added another win to their record as they dealt a 37-30 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
It seemed like the recent acquisition of rookie gunslinger Jordan Love hasn’t bothered Rodgers at all. He operated like his usual self with the entire Packers offense looking better than ever.
“It wasn’t an explosion of offense, but the efficiency was really, really good… Just so much stress on the defense with guys flying and guys sliding and guys coming back on the other side,” Rodgers said, via PackersNews.com. “Again, I’ve said it a lot, but I just feel so much more comfortable in the offense this year. I think Matt has really settled into the rhythm of the play calling, and it’s made my job a lot easier.”
The two-time NFL MVP had another dominant showing in their Week 3 matchup as he racked up 283 passing yards on a 21-of-32 clip along with three passing touchdowns. Veteran wide receiver Allen Lazard connected on 146 receiving yards on 6 touches along with a scored touchdown.
Tight end Robert Tonyan Jr. was productive as well after recording 50 receiving yards on 5 receptions and a touchdown. His fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis also contributed with 18 receiving yards on a single catch and a score on the endzone for the team.
Despite not having new weapons around him, Aaron Rodgers continues to make things work in Green Bay. The Packers will aim to carry over their impressive performance as they go up against the Atlanta Falcons on Week 4’s Monday Night Football.
