Quarterback: A

It’s hard to name a quarterback who’s performed at a higher level over the last month than Aaron Rodgers. As Zach Kruse of The Packers Wire noted, Rodgers led the NFL in October with 10 touchdown passes and 21 completions of over 20 yards. Additionally, Rodgers finished with the second-highest passer rating (118.7) among all quarterbacks.

While Rodgers has been on fire over the last month, he struggled in the earlier part of the season. There’s no question he’s finding his stride in Matt LaFleur’s offense now, though, which is even more impressive considering star receiver Davante Adams was available for all of September but missed all four games in October.

Even more impressive was that Green Bay averaged 32.5 points per game in October. Through eight games, Rodgers currently stands at 2,324 passing yards, 17 total touchdowns, two interceptions and has a 65.4 percent completion rate and 106.7 passer rating.

Rodgers is one of the front runners for MVP at the moment and there’s a case to be made that the Packers are the favorites in the NFC entering the second half of the season. If he keeps up his current pace, Rodgers should garner serious consideration for MVP and the Packers will likely be a top-two seed in the playoffs. He gets an A for his first-half performance.
