NFC North Week 11 Quarterback Report, 1.0
By Kevin Seifert
With one team on a bye and another set to play Monday night, this Quarterback Report hits 50 percent of our targets. We don't control the schedule, however. We just play it. Look for a review of Chicago Bears quarterback Jason Campbell on Tuesday, probably embedded in the Bears' Free Head Exam.
Thanks once again to Jacob Nitzberg for his help in compiling this post.

Comment: Sunday marked the fifth fourth-quarter comeback victory in Rodgers' career, a relatively low figure that is muted by his 48-24 record overall as a starter. Passes of 40 yards to tight end Jermichael Finley and 22 yards to Randall Cobb highlighted the final drive, which gave Rodgers an 82.2 QBR in the fourth quarter. But in a testament to the two-deep look the Lions showed all game, the pass to Cobb was Rodgers' only completion that traveled more than 20 yards in the air. A late second-quarter interception, and an early sack/fumble in the third quarter, helped lower his overall QBR. The interception, in fact, dropped the Packers' win probability by 15 percent because it negated a likely scoring drive and gave the Lions a chance to pad a 10-7 lead.

Comment: Stafford's inaccuracy on a third-quarter pass to tight end Tony Scheffler led to an interception returned for a touchdown, which ESPN calculated to be the biggest swing play of the game. It dropped the Lions' win probability from 71.3 percent to 38.5 percent. Stafford's overall completion percentage of 43.6 was his lowest since Week 13 of 2009. He completed only five of the 26 passes he threw that traveled more than 5 yards in the air and took five sacks, three of which came on third down.
