He is also very good at making opposing teams pay when they blitz him due to his quick release and the team's short pass patterns.
Just what the struggling Browns need: a matchup against the team that has the best record in the AFC as well as the NFL's most potent offense. It's one of the great organizations in all of sports, certainly in the National Football League. They certainly lack consistency.
"A lot of great players, a lot of weapons on all three sides of the ball, all three phases". Ever since losing to the Lions on SNF, they have not lost or looked weak on offense at all. They settle for a field goal on the first drive that stalls at the 11. The incumbent punter, rookie JK Scott, is not listed on the injury report. Their coverage could be better, but they're disrupting things pretty effectively up front. The yards per game difference (Brady 261.9, Rodgers 261.4) is negligible, but Rodgers has edge in completion percentage (64.9 to 64) and touchdowns per game (2.1 to 1.9).

"It's been a little bit up and down", the Packers' head coach said.
The game will also mark just the second time in history that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will face each other. Gutekunst traded the RB away for next-to-nothing (a 2020 7th-round draft pick). Even more lucky, most of New England's skill-position group, already banged-up and thin, has gotten off fairly easy the past several weeks. Gronkowski has 29 catches for 448 yards and a TD.
"It's a tough stretch, but we have an opportunity to take a big chunk of confidence if we can go up there and play our best game". The new secondary will be put to the test immediately and the Pack needs them to finish the game with a passing grade.
This Sunday night, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will travel to Foxborough to try to defeat Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in a starting quarterback match-up that we've only seen once before.
"I think if Belichick had Rodgers", he explains, "you would see more roll-outs and some bootlegs, and just some interesting ways to use tools - physically - that Brady doesn't possess".
