Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams were clicking in Green Bay’s 27-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football.
Rodgers posted a 92.6 passer rating throwing for 313-yards and two touchdowns, both of which were caught by Adams who posted 113 receiving yards to go with the two scores.
The Packers (5-6) ended a four game losing streak with the victory, which came to no surprise to Aaron Rodgers. During his media time on Wednesday, Rodgers predicted the Packers would go undefeated to finish the season.
“I feel like we can run the table, I really do. The offense is starting to click a little bit more, we’ve just got to put together a game where we’re more consistent from the first snap to the last. We’ve been, I think, getting closer to that.”
A key to the Packers victory is getting the offense going early to take the pressure off a struggling defense. Green Bay’s defense has given up at least 30 points in each of its last four games, all resulting in losses.
“We’ve really been clicking at times in the last few games,” Rodgers said. “But it’s going to be important that we get going early. We had three three-and-outs to start the [Washington] game, but overall on the season, we’ve done a better job of limiting our three-and-outs, we’ve been sustaining drives pretty well.”
Rodgers did exactly that, throwing two touchdowns on the first two drives of the game. Davante Adams caught both scoring passes, his seventh and eighth scores of the year.

Philadelphia (5-6) struggled offensively all night, scoring a touchdown only on their first drive of the game on a 1-yard rush by QB Carson Wentz. Wentz went 24-36 on the night, with 254-yards and one interception.
This was the Eagles first home loss of the season, the only high point they had going for this dreary season. This is one the Eagles would like to put behind them.
The Eagles, who started the season 3-0, have gone 2-6 since as they sit in last place in the NFC East.
In the Packers case they sit in third place in the NFL North, 2 games behind the Detriot Lions.
For Aaron Rogers prediction for the team to come true, the Packers will have to win against Houston, Seattle, at Chicago, Minnesota and at Detroit.
