GREEN BAY over Min­nesota by 6

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 12 1.800.playbook -

Pack­ers QB Wil­lis Reed, err Aaron Rodgers, pulled off the great­est come­back in Green By his­tory last week when he came limp­ing out of the locker room at half­time to lead his troops from a 20-0 deficit to a stir­ring 24-23 come­back win over the Bears on Sun­day night. The Leader of the Pack proved why he is the league’s high­est paid player. He also showed his dom­i­nance in divi­sion play, a neigh­bor­hood clearly owned by Mr. Rodgers as al­luded to by Marc in his col­umn: 42-14 SU and 37-19 ATS, in­clud­ing 11-0 SU and 9-2 ATS at home dur­ing the first six games of the sea­son. Rodgers is also es­pe­cially adept in divi­sion play when com­ing off a divi­sion con­test as con­firmed by his 15-2 SU and 13-4 ATS mark, in­clud­ing in these games when fac­ing an op­po­nent com­ing off a win in its last game. Granted, Minny has been mighty them­selves un­der head coach Mike Zim­mer, es­pe­cially at the pay win­dow where he owns a 45-21-2 ATS ca­reer mark – but only 13-11 SU and 12-11-1 ATS in divi­sion play. With Rodger’s ad­ver­sary, Kirk Cousins, just in games priced less than 3 points (ei­ther fa­vored or dog) when com­ing off a win, we’re on the Knicks - make that the Pack­ers - in their best role to­day.
