19. Green Bay Packers

For the first time in a long time, the Green Bay Packers are in serious risk of missing out on the playoffs with Aaron Rodgers under center.

How granted, this isn’t an isolated incident, as the Packers struggled for much of last season with Brett Hundley under center, but it’s been quite some time since a Rogers-lead team has started out a season with a 4-4-1 record, and trailed the Chicago Bears in their division.

But here we are in Week 11, and it took a big afternoon by Packers rusher Aaron Jones to even get his team back to the .500 mark.

If Aaron Jones can continue to provide 145 rushing yards on 15 carries and two touchdowns in each game, then the Packers may have something, but then again, they were playing the Dolphins won exactly known for their stout defensive front.

While there is still very much a route to the playoffs for the Packers if they can find a way to squeak out wins against the Minnesota Vikings, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Chicago Bears, it’s hard to imagine this Packers team making a deep playoff run in Aaron Rodgers 13th professional season.
