2018 NFL Power Rankings Week 2: Los Angeles Rams crush Oakland Raiders 33-13
10. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers is not human, and there’s simply no other way to put it when looking at how the Green Bay Packers quarterback went from seeming like he was done for the night with a leg injury to pulling off one of the most epic comebacks of his career. The Packers seemed to be on their way to being on the wrong side of a major Week 1 upset before Rodgers returned to the game, and helped the team overcome a 20-0 deficit by scoring 24 points in the second half.
From his unbelievable touchdown pass to Geronimo Allison to kick off the fourth quarter to connecting with Randall Cobb for the 75-yard score in what ended up being the difference maker, Rodgers was unbelievable in this win by Green Bay. But as great as it was to see Rodgers shine despite the leg injury, the main question moving forward is whether there should be any reason for concern heading into Week 2.
The last thing the Packers want to do is put Rodgers at risk to making the injury worse by having him play when he shouldn’t be, although he’s going to do everything in his power to be out there against the Minnesota Vikings. Green Bay fans remember well what happened last year when the team took on Minnesota, and it would be crushing to see a repeat of that on Sunday.
