Darrelle Revis: Aaron Rodgers, Packers 'biggest test yet'
Ahead of Saturday's game at Green Bay, New England Patriots All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis said Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the league, and that none of the Patriots' opponents this season compare to the Packers' offense, according to NESN.com.
“They’re top in every category in the passing game,” Revis said about the Packers. “We believe that Aaron Rodgers is our biggest test yet, so, we respect those guys.”
Rodgers ranks first in yards per pass attempt (8.65) and passer rating (119.3) in the NFL, and second in passing touchdowns (30). He has thrown just three interceptions.
In Green Bay's last three games—all wins by a combined 132-55—Rodgers has thrown for a combined 865 yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions.
The Packers' top receivers, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, both rank within the league's top 15 for receptions and yards, and both are averaging at least 14 yards per carry.
“They always get open,” Revis said about Nelson and Cobb. “That shows you that they understand the game. They’re very experienced. You can tell they have a lot of chemistry with Aaron Rodgers.”
Green Bay and New England kick off at 4:25 p.m. Saturday at Lambeau Field.
