    • Nelson caught only one of four...

      Nelson caught only one of four targets for nine yards in Thursday's 26-10 win over the Bears.

      Analysis: On a night where the trio of Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery saw a combined 44 targets, Nelson was shockingly the forgotten man. His one reception prevented him from being shut out of the stat sheet altogether for the first time since November 4, 2012 in a game versus the Cardinals. Aaron Rodgers was simply able to find the aforementioned receivers on a consistent basis, but given Nelson's track record and rapport with the quarterback, Thursday's overall pass distribution has to be considered an outlier. Nelson will look to bounce back to his customary numbers when the Packers take on the Falcons in what could turn into a Week 8 shootout.

      Adams (concussion) tallied a career-high 13 catches on 16 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 26-10 win over the Bears.

      Analysis: In a true out-of-nowhere performance, Adams led all receivers on the night in receptions, yardage and targets while impressively bouncing back from a concussion suffered just four days prior versus the Cowboys. He also added two more scores to his burgeoning touchdown resume, hooking up with Aaron Rodgers for a go-ahead five-yard score late in the third before connecting with him for a second time from two yards out to extend the Packers' lead to 20-10 early in the final period. While the numbers represented quite the boon for his fantasy owners, the reality is that Rodgers' pass distribution Thursday was anything but typical, considering No.1 receiver Jordy Nelson received only four targets to Adams' 16. While he can still be expected to offer solid production in a third receiver role going forward, it would likely be unwise to expect similar production to Thursday's. However, with five touchdowns on the season, Adams does seem to have a prominent role in Green Bay's red-zone strategy.

    • Cobb notched 11 receptions on 15...

      Cobb notched 11 receptions on 15 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown and added 21 yards on five carries in Thursday's 26-10 win over the Bears.

      Analysis: Like teammate Ty Montgomery, Cobb was called upon for some double duty Thursday given the decimated state of the Packers backfield. He contributed modestly on the ground but was solid through the air while receiving the second-most targets on the night. Cobb has now scored in consecutive weeks after getting shut of the end zone over Green Bay's first four games, and has seen a total of 37 targets over the last three contests. That level of attention is likely unsustainable over the long term, but the sixth-year pro has certainly regained his footing in the offense after some early-season struggles.

      Montgomery gained 60 yards on nine carries and hauled in 10 of 13 targets for 66 yards in Thursday's 26-10 victory over the Bears.

      Analysis: The second-year receiver expected to be busy Thursday and that prophecy was indeed fulfilled. After not seeing a target prior to Week 6, Montgomery now has 20 receptions on 25 targets over the last two weeks. Due to the MASH unit-status of the Packers backfield entering Thursday's contest, Montgomery also put in work at running back for the second straight week, although his Week 7 workload was much more extensive than last Sunday's versus the Cowboys. The Stanford product impressively ripped of a 30-yard run as a back, flashing his versatile skill set. With Eddie Lacy (ankle) now on IR and James Starks (knee) expected out at least three more weeks, Montgomery could still see a decent workload out of the backfield even as recent acquisition Knile Davis acclimates to the offense.

    • Rodgers completed 39 of 56 passes...

      Rodgers completed 39 of 56 passes for 326 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 26-10 victory over the Bears. He also gained seven yards on two rushes and lost a fumble.

      Analysis: For at least one night. Rodgers was able to put forth the type of performance that will help silence some of his recent critics. Granted, his impressive yardage was the product of an atypical and unsustainable 56 throws, meaning the All-Pro signal-caller averaged only 5.8 yards per attempt. However, given the makeshift condition of the Packers' backfield, Rodgers responded to having a heavier-than-usual workload placed on his shoulders by finding Davante Adams for a whopping 13 receptions and a pair of touchdowns and Randall Cobb for another 11 catches for 95 yards and a score. Factoring in Ty Montgomery's 10 grabs, Rodgers targeted the trio a total of 44 times, completing 34 of those passes. Surprisingly, Jordy Nelson only saw four looks from Rodgers, as he focused on a short-to-intermediate passing game that worked to near perfection. While Thursday's path to a win was fairly unorthodox from a passing game perspective, Rodgers will try to build on his positive momentum when he and the Packers take on the Falcons in a Week 8 showdown.
