What you need to know about the Packers
The Packers entered the season with Super Bowl aspirations, but have yet to truly resemble a team that could be considered a title contender. Reigning two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers hasn’t played poorly by any means, but he hasn’t been dominant either. The future Hall of Famer has completed 67% of his pass attempts for 1,403 yards, nine touchdowns, three interceptions and a 94.2 quarterback rating.
One of the main reasons for the slight decline in Rodgers’ production has been the play of Green Bay’s wide receivers. After trading Davante Adams last offseason, the Packers were hoping one of their young wide receivers would help fill the void left by the five-time Pro Bowler. Through six games, Allen Lazard leads the team in receiving yards (285), while tight end Robert Tonyan leads the team in receptions (27). Rookie Romeo Doubs has shown flashes of being a top wide receiver in the NFL, but he’s still struggling with inconsistencies. For Green Bay’s offense to really click, this group has to get on the same page as Rodgers quickly.
What you need to know about Commanders
The Commanders snapped a four-game losing streak with their victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday night, but lost Wentz in the process. Wentz hadn’t been playing particularly well in his first season in Washington, completing 62.1% of his passes for 1,489 yards, 10 touchdowns, six interceptions and an 84.1 quarterback rating.
Wentz will be replaced by Heinicke, who has played well for Washington at times in the past. In 15 starts for the Commanders in 2021, Heinicke completed 65% of his passes for 3,419 yards, 20 touchdowns, 15 interceptions and a quarterback rating of 85.9. He’ll have his work cut out for him against a Green Bay defense that ranks first in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game (164.0).
