That's what makes Rodgers' 30-of-37, 342-yard, three-score effort Sunday just as impressive as his six-touchdown explosion in Houston in Week 6. Despite no Greg Jennings or running game, Rodgers hit the Rams with an array of quick passes and vertical strikes. It's like the first five weeks of the season never happened.
With Jacksonville and Arizona coming to Lambeau the next two weeks, Green Bay is ready to put together a run.
Trouble in victory
The Patriots have been somewhat unlucky to be 3-3 before Sunday, but they got the breaks in this one. It was their first "clutch" win -- a necessary one -- yet it felt like New England's worst performance of the season. The secondary can't make plays on the ball and is starting to look like it did a year ago. The Jets' offense was more explosive.
It was a win, but in many ways the most troubling game of their season.
Familiar and depressing
Newton's rough press conference. Williams' Twitter adventures. Another backbreaking fourth quarter for the Panthers. It's all so familiar.
"The past couple of games have been the same script, by the same director," Newton said. "It's kind of getting boring."
So you're saying there's a chance?
- Is the New Orleans Saints' season still over? Their offense is humming once again. They could get within one game of .500 with a win in Denver next week. That might be the most intriguing game between a 2-4 team and a 3-3 team in NFL history.
Sure, Griffin turned over the ball twice. But he was nearly flawless before that and put together a touchdown drive for the ages to give the Redskins the lead with under 90 seconds left. RG3 eluded Jason Pierre-Paul in the open field to convert on fourth-and-10. He used his legs to set up a gorgeous 30-yard touchdown toss to Santana Moss.
