Football Outsiders Discuss the Packers

The Packers' defense has scored seven TDs this season. Don't get used to it. It's not a skill. The ball is just bouncing their way.

They've ranked the Packers as the 5th best team in the league. Aaron felt some explaination was in order because that puts them ahead of 11 teams with better records:

"The Packers have lost three games by a field goal or less, and their largest loss is 11 points...

The Packers have outscored opponents by 65 points with +7 turnover margin...

Despite five losses, the Packers have only one game with DVOA below zero: their Week 4 loss to Tampa Bay."

The good news was at the bottom of Aaron's article; the Packers have the 7th easiest schedule the rest of the way.

Although it wasn't a great weekend for QBs, they ranked Rodgers as the 3rd best QB last weekend.
