Green Bay Packers quarterback and reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers will be the first to admit that his team has struggled this season and is putting the blame of himself.

"I haven't played as well as the expectations are, obviously," Rodgers said on 540 AM in Milwaukee. "The ones I put on myself, I like to think are as high or higher than the ones people outside put on me. It's interesting to look at the stats for what they are and think I'm not playing my best football right now."

Rodgers has thrown for 1,307 yards with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. His 97.o quarterback rating is eighth in the league.

"I set the bar high and I expect to play at a higher level. Been making just some mistakes I'm not used to making. Throwing the ball to the other team, I've done that four times already. ... Uncharacteristic of the way I've played," Rodgers said. "Missed some throws I'm accustomed to hitting. Haven't played the way of the standard I've set."
The Packers are 2-3 and play at the undefeated Houston Texas (5-0) on Sunday, the first of three straight road games for the team.
