Is it too soon to crown Aaron Rodgers as this season’s MVP? He’s certainly looked the part leading the Packers to the the top of NFC standings with a 10-3 record following a shaky 1-2 start. Let’s take a look at my Predictions Week 15 for this Green Bay Packers vs. Buffalo Bills game Picks and Betting Preview – December 14, 2014.

Predictions Week 15Rodgers’and the Packers’impressive run may hit a rate bump though. They decide to try the trail for an interconference showdown against a Buffalo Bills team still in the race for an AFC wild card spot in Week 15. Can Rodgers continue to keep the Packers rolling? Or will the Bills’top-ranked defense decelerate the Green Bay quarterback?

Where: Ralph Wilson Stadium, Buffalo. When: Sunday, December 14, 1:00 PM ET. Line: Green Bay Packers (-5) at Buffalo Bills (+5); total 50.5.

Welcome to the Aaron Rodgers show.  The Green Bay quarterback threw for three more touchdowns in a 43-37 win on the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night to help strengthen his case with this year’s MVP award. The overall game was a milestone for Rodgers, who celebrated his 100th career start by leading the Packers for their fifth win in a row.

Rodgers is a huge terror against opposing defenses throughout his 100-game old career. He ranks first in league history in touchdown passes (222), passing yards (27,520) and passer rating (107.3) as of this stage of an NFL quarterback’s career. He also tops  all quarterbacks in zero-interception games (58), 100-plus passer rating games (60) and touchdown-to-interception ratio (4.11:1) through their first century of games.

In the current season, Rodgers has an average of 8.78 yards per pass attempt, a 119 passer rating and an 11.7:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio, all league-highs and MVP-worthy numbers..

The electric Green Bay quarterback has been extremely tough to contain with a gifted cast built around him. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson leads the league with 12 touchdown receptions this season. He also leads the NFL with 13 receiving touchdowns of 50 yards or longer over the past four seasons. Randall Cobb has also been a potent weapon in the receiving corps hauling in 10 touchdown receptions this season.

Even running back Eddie Lacy is promoting as a receiving threat as a result of Rodgers’excellent play. Lacy currently has 385 yards receiving and four touchdowns when compared with 257 yards in 15 games last season.

Having opposing defenses dedicated to stopping Rodgers has additionally opened lanes for Green Bay’s lead back. Lacy has averaged 4.5 yards per carry and has seven rushing touchdowns  thus far  this season.

The Packers are 4-2-1 ATS against AFC competition since 2013.

Somewhere in Buffalo, the Bills’top-ranked defense is smiling at the chance of hauling Rodgers back again to earth.  That’s since the Bills are coming off an extraordinary defensive performance locking down another MVP-caliber quarterback in the Broncos’Peyton Manning on Sunday.

Buffalo broke Manning’s streak of 51 games with at least one touchdown throw,  limited him to 173 yards passing and took two interceptions thanks to cornerbacks Corey Graham and Stephon Gilmore.

But with their focus primarily on Manning on Sunday, the Bills failed to keep Denver’s set of undrafted running backs C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson in check.  They racked up 121 yards and four touchdowns on the floor to lead the Broncos to a 24-17 win over Buffalo.

Running the exact same defensive  scheme against the pass-happy Packers, with Graham and Gilmore covering Green Bay’s dynamic receivers, may limit Rodgers’production as it did to Manning. However, it  may possibly also open lanes in the front seven for Green Bay running back Lacy to exploit.

Buffalo may have also taken note of the Packers’defensive collapse against Atlanta. Green Bay’s defense allowed Matt Ryan to pass for 375 yards with four touchdowns and one interception. Meanwhile, Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had a lifetime career night with 259 yards receiving and a score.

If the Packers’defense continues to offer opponents the exact same openings  through the air, then expect the Kyle Orton-Sammy Watkins dynamic in the future into play. Orton passed for a season-high 355 yards on Sunday, while Watkins also had a huge day catching seven passes for 127 yards.

Pair up the Bills’excellent defense with the Orton-Watkins connection, and they need to have an excellent chance at upsetting the Packers. Rodgers brings forth his championship belt celebration as he leads the Packers past Buffalo. NFL Week 15 Predictions Take Green Bay to win and cover -5.
