Week 4: NFL Player of the Week

Week 4: NFL Player of the Week - Aaron Rodgers

words // Brandon Richard

Week 4 of the NFL schedule marked the last full week of games before teams start receiving byes this Sunday. With every team in action, there were several players taken into consideration for the Eastbay NFL Player of the Week.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith had a surprising game, completing 31 of his 33 passes for 291 yards and two touchdowns in an impressive comeback win over the Philadelphia Eagles and their highly touted secondary. Arian Foster returned to the Texans lineup with 155 yards and a touchdown over the Pittsburgh Steelers and their usually impenetrable defense. Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte also had a huge game, carrying 25 times for 205 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Carolina Panthers. However, Week 4 belonged to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who had six total touchdowns in a dominant 49-23 victory over the Denver Broncos.

As we noted in yesterday’s NFL Watch, Rodgers looked unstoppable through the air and on the ground. He completed 29 of his 38 passes (134.5 QB rating) for 408 yards and four touchdowns, including a 50-yard strike to Jordy Nelson to take the lead early in the first quarter. On the ground, Rodgers was equally as dangerous, carrying nine times for 36 yards and two touchdowns. The 408 passing yards marked a regular season career high.

The Packers will travel to Georgia for a playoff rematch with the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night.
