Most feel the starters for Green Bay will not be on the field long. With the No 1 sed wrapped up i can't see how Rodgers, Adams, Jones and Dillon are even allowed to take a snap.
Yes. They did some sort of analysis of teams that rested players and it looked better to play them some. Rodgers and the players wanted to play.The narrative would be to "keep the rust off", since the Packers have the bye.
Anytime you can risk your best chance at winning a super bowl to get a couple more stats, you have to do it.Dillon almost scoring on a nice 8-yard run down to the 1. Then 2 straight passes on 2nd and 3rd down resulting in a Rodgers TD to Lazard. There are considerations for MVP and the record books.
