Let's do some quick math.
What does four passes, two completions and one touchdown from Aaron Rodgers' single drive against the Pittsburgh defense add up to? The Packers offense is going to be the best in the NFL behind a healthy Rodgers in 2018.
Even though No. 12 was only responsible for six of them, 51 points is just nuts in the NFL. Especially
Not so fast. Take a deep breath and let's realize one thing:
If former Cleveland Browns draft bust and second-year quarterback DeShone Kizer can put up a 142.0 QB rating on the Steelers with 149 yards and a pair of touchdowns, then you probably need to temper expectations about Rodgers and the Packers offense. This was more about the Steelers not showing up for a meaningless preseason game than the Packers offense being the best in the NFL.
Sure, no Jordy, no problem. Tight end Jimmy Graham looked great. When Jake Kumerow – a rookie from a Division II program – is catching three passes for 114 yards and a TD, the Packers are going to be just fine on the receiving front.
But before anyone gets too excited, remember this is just preseason. We'll wait until the games count before declaring any offense the best in the NFL.
