Research Notes

  • Aaron Rodgers had the worst statistical game of his career on Sunday, recording a QBR of 9.4. The only start of Rodgers' career in which his QBR was lower came in Week 14 of 2010, when the Lions knocked him out in the second quarter with a concussion after just 11 passes.

  • Carson Palmer now has 34 Pass TD this season, 7th most in a single season by any QB age 36 or older. He needs 2 more in Week 17 to catch Tom Brady (this season), Steve Young (1998) and Y.A. Tittle (1963) for 4th most at age 36 or older.

  • Aaron Rodgers (GB): 9.4 Total QBR Sunday, his 2nd-lowest QBR in any start in his career (7.2 at Lions in 2010)

  • David Johnson gained 127 yards from scrimmage Sunday, 63 of which came after first contact. Johnson is averaging 3.0 yards after contact on plays from scrimmage the last 4 weeks (1.6 in first 11 games).

  • The 30-point loss was the worst for the Packers in a game started by Aaron Rodgers. Previous high was a 28-point loss in 2012 against the Giants.

  • The Packers allowed 9 sacks, fumbled 5 times and allowed 2 fumble return touchdowns in their Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.It was their most sacks allowed since 1982, their most fumbles since 2003 and their most fumble return TD allowed since 1984.
