Green Bay Packers Super Bowl 50 Odds Analysis
2014 Season in Review
The GoodEven though they were on the wrong end of one of the most inexplicable and heartbreaking postseason losses in recent memory, the Green Bay Packers had a lot of really good things happen to them in 2014. The Packers were absolute monsters on offense last season, finishing sixth in total offense, eighth in passing and 11th in rushing. Future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers unleashed a season for the ages in winning his second career MVP award. Green Bay’s Pro Bowl signal-caller finished seventh in passing yards (4,381) while wide receivers Jordy Nelson (1,519) and Randall Cobb (1,287) finished fourth and 11th respectively in receiving yards. Young stud running back Eddie Lacy finished seventh in rushing yards (1,139) while also finishing sixth in touchdowns (13), Nelson and Cobb also finished in the top 10 in touchdowns with Nelson finishing with 13 scores and Cobb, finishing 10th with a dozen scores. Green Bay also finished 10th against the pass and a respectable 13th in points allowed (21.8 ppg) and saw Rodgers, Nelson, fullback John Kuhn, guard Josh Sitton and linebacker Clay Matthews all earn Pro Bowl berths.
The BadGreen Bay was mostly mediocre on defense last season as they finished 15th overall, mostly because their 23rd-ranked run defense was mediocre at best and sub par more often than not.
The UglyOutside of Aaron Rodgers calf injury that hampered him throughout the postseason, the Packers had an ‘ugly-free’ season in 2014.
Let’s take a look at Green Bay’s statistics from this past season.
