Aaron Rodgers and the Packers roll the terrible Tennessee Titans

Aaron Rodgers vs. Titans

Earlier in the season, it would have been appropriate to point out how the Green Bay Packers play down to lesser competition in close wins over the New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars at home.

Can’t say that now though as the Packers (11-4) steam-rolled the Titans to the tune of 55-7.
