Football Outsiders on Aaron Rodgers

QB Aaron Rodgers came in ranked No. 9 among all QBs in Week 6. As good as he was, the 5 sacks are counted against him, and he basically sat out the 4th quarter (or more accurately practiced his handoffs). From Football Outsiders:

Aaron Rodgers didn't pad his stats; after a third-quarter sack and fumble, he threw only one pass in the fourth quarter, an interception. A more important question: What's up with Greg Jennings? We thought the star wideout would have a big game against the Lions, but Jennings only ended up with 38 yards on six catches in eight attempts. Our theory: Rodgers is struggling to get the protection he needs to allow Jennings to run double moves and get open downfield.
