|Avg Points Allowed||28.3||20.9|
Green Bay seems to be in good shape going forward. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers connected with James Jones for three touchdown passes last week. Randall Cobb also topped 100 yards receiving in that contest. They will look to employ much of the same this week against a Titans team who has improved on defense of late.
The Packers have a clear path to the number two seed in the NFC. Their defense welcomed back Clay Matthews last week and have allowed 20 or fewer points in each of their last three wins.
Since the aforementioned drumming by the Bears the Titans defense has allowed only 285.8 yards per game (third best during the span) and has allowed just 17.6 points per game.
Of course the Titans are 2-3 during that span and their offense has scored twenty-plus points once during that span. Last week Chris Johnson ran for 122 yards but 94 of them came on one touchdown run. Aside from that play he ran the ball 20 times for 28 yards. Jake Locker has shown mixed results at quarterback. Just when he seems poised to take a step forward he puts up a performance like the 13-of-22 for 149 yards he did last week against the Jets.
