The Green Bay Packers enter the NFL playoffs on a roll, earning the NFC's No. 1 seed and a bye in the Wild Card round after posting a 13-3 record. A big part of their success has been the connection between MVP frontrunner Aaron Rodgers and wideout Davante Adams.
They're both posting gaudy numbers this season, but none might be more impressive than Rodgers' passer rating when throwing to Adams.
This stat further emphasizes how special the Rodgers-Adams connection truly is on the field. For context, the highest possible passer rating is 158.3, and the all-time single-season record for a QB is 122.5 (set by Rodgers himself in 2011).
Much hoopla was made about the Packers' lack of wideout additions this offseason, but so far, it doesn't look like it's affected Rodgers in the slightest. He's made a career out of getting the most from unlikely sources, like turning Robert Tonyan into a touchdown machine this season (11 TDs) after the tight end scored just 1 TD in each of the last two seasons.
Rodgers has doubled down on Adams as his No. 1 wideout and it's paid off, with Adams leading the league in receiving TDs (18) and Rodgers placing first in passing TDs (48).
It looks like little can stop this duo, and that's bad news for the NFC as the playoff begin. The Packers' +175 odds to win the conference have them as the favorites to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
