Not too many teams can stand toe-to-toe with Aaron Rodgers when he’s on.
And make no mistake, the Packers quarterback is on today.
But in a mild surprise, the Jaguars are doing a pretty good job of matching him play-for-play.
The Packers are up 21-17 at halftime, after a sensational touchdown pass to Davante Adams. Rodgers was being pulled down from behind by Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, but threw across the field to Adams, who was able to avoid a mugging of his own to make the grab.
It was a huge play, but the young Jaguars have shown some resilience.
Blake Bortles has thrown for 187 yards and a touchdown after an early interception, and T.J. Yeldon as added a touchdown on the ground. But on a hot day in Jacksonville, the Jaguars have had moments when they looked like they’re perfectly capable of hanging around.
While that may sound a little patronizing, the Jaguars have teased with potential on offense lately, but could be closing in on delivering.
