Last Season: 11-5, 5-1 division Playoffs: Lost in second round to San Francisco Stat Leaders: QB Aaron Rodgers (4,295 YDS, 39 TDS, 8 INTS); RB Alex Green (464 YDS, 0 TDS); WR Randall Cobb (954 YDS, 8 TDS); S Morgan Burnett (123 TACKLES, 2.0 SACKS) The Buzz: Aaron Rodgers is one of the top three quarterbacks in the NFL and always makes the Packers Super Bowl contenders. However, Rodgers didn't get help from the rest of the offense last season to get past the 49ers in the playoffs. The Green Bay offensive line must improve after letting Rodgers get sacked 51 times. Rodgers didn't get much help from the rushing attack, although that could change after The Packers drafted a pair of elite college performers in Alabama's Eddie Lacy and UCLA's Johnathan Franklin. Clay Matthews is an elite pass rusher who anchors the defense, but he could use some consistent help up front. Luck Factor: Who needs luck when you've got Rodgers leading your offense? He has passed for 21,332 career yards and 170 touchdowns during the past five seasons and shows no signs of slowing down.
