Green Bay Packers: Will Aaron Rodgers make a late-season return?

If the Packers can get their defense and special teams to perform at this level when/if Rodgers returns, the team would have a very good shot at the playoffs.

Brett Hundley and the Packers offense have needed the defense to bail them out this season, since Aaron Rodgers injury.

As for who would win each tiebreaker based on each possible scenario, remember: Who owns tiebreakers can EASILY change based on results of games to come, especially if those tiebreakers don't involve head-to-head play - ESPECIALLY if it is a multi-team tiebreaker, so take any "they own the tiebreaker" statements with much more than a grain of salt. He has put together two 100-yard games this season, racking up 125 yards and a touchdown during Green Bay's win over the Dallas Cowboys back in Week 5 and then puncturing the New Orleans Saints' defense for 131 yards and one score on October 22. And at the end of regulation, with the Bucs trying to drive to a winning field goal, an illegal block by Smith erased a gain of 20 on a screen. It lets him know that we're here to help him.

Jones returned from his knee injury and received only one carry, which didn't come till overtime, but he did run it in for a touchdown from 20 yards out. Linebacker Clay Matthews had 2 1/2 sacks of Green Bay's seven sacks.

Said Hundley: "We always have it because I'm able to run". When Barber gained 34 yards on a screen and the Bucs advanced to the Packers' 30 on the ensuing possession, Clark and Lowry combined on the sack-strip for a touchdown. "That's probably our worst protection game we've had all year". Jamaal Williams ran for 113 yards on 21 carries for Green Bay.

The defense also held in the final 2 minutes after the Packers had tied it up at 20, giving the offense the boost it needed to win the game.

With Rodgers back at practice, we can only hope the Packers are able to stay afloat and make a push for the playoffs. With the Buccaneers showing an all-out blitz, though, McCarthy said Hundley made the right decision rather than going with a handoff. Or so they thought.

With quarterback Aaron Rodgers out at least another week - and perhaps longer - as he comes back from an October 15 fractured right collarbone, the emergence of Williams and Jones could give the offense a different element when and if the two-time NFL MVP returns.

"I felt good", Matthews said. Both teams have struggled mightily this season (needless to say, in Cleveland's case), but even with the "advantage", the Packers can't afford to take anything for granted. Even if Rodgers gets a full clean bill of health from medical professionals, it would seem near worthless to hurl him on the field in games that have no real mattering attached to them. On third-and-goal at the 3 to start the fourth, center Evan Smith's premature snap to Winston led to a loss of 9 and forced a field goal.
