Week 9: NFL Player of the Week

 

Week 9: NFL Player of the Week - Aaron Rodgers

words // Brandon Richard

If we were choosing a league MVP through nine weeks of the 2011 NFL schedule, honors would without a doubt go to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The 7-year pro is playing far and away the best football of his young career and the Packers have an undefeated record to show for it. Locked in a QB duel this past Sunday with Philip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers, it was once again Rodgers that played peerless football, and that’s why he’s the Eastbay NFL Player of the Week.

Aaron connected on 21 of his 26 passes in the game, lifting his season completion percentage to 72.5%, a career high. Rodgers racked up 247 yards and threw four touchdown passes, all while gaining an additional 52 yards on the ground. He threw no interceptions, while Rivers was picked off three times, eventually proving to be the difference in Green Bay’s wild 45-38 Week 9 victory.

Currently leading the NFL with an incredible 129.1 passer rating, Rodgers has thrown a league-high 24 touchdown passes with a modest three interceptions. He’s averaging 9.9 yards per completion. Is there a defense capable of shutting him down?
