1. Rodgers combines for six touchdowns for second week in a row

What Aaron Rodgers was able to accomplish last weekend against the Oakland Raiders after finishing with six touchdowns (one rushing) shows just how lucky the Green Bay Packers to have him running the offense.

In the previous two years leading up to 2019, it was surprising to see Rodgers and Packers struggle the way they did since this was a team that always seemed to be a lock for at least a playoff spot in the NFC.

But after making the decision to move on from Mike McCarthy before the end of last season, and eventually replace him with Matt LaFleur before the 2019 season, Green Bay has worked their way back into being a top contender in the NFC once again.

As long as Rodgers continues to play on a high level each week, not only should the Packers be able to secure a playoff spot with ease, but the Green Bay quarterback could even find his name in the MVP conversation.

Matching six touchdowns for a second week in a row is always easier said than done for any quarterback, but the Packers taking on the Kansas City Chiefs could result in a high-scoring contest, and another career day for Rodgers.
