FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Their blitz hasn't been as effective as last season, but the New York Jets could get it cranked up again Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
Save for last Sunday night against the Minnesota Vikings, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has slipped against added pressure. A year ago, he was a blitz killer, but not now. Maybe he started to reverse the trend against the Vikings, when he completed six of nine for a 135 passer rating versus added pressure, but the Jets have a like their chances of disrupting him.
Courtesy of ESPN Stats and Information, here's a breakdown of Rodgers vs. added pressure. Keep in mind the Jets have sent at least five rushers on a league-high 51.5 percent of opponents' pass plays.
Rodgers vs 5-or-More Pass Rushers, last two seasons:
Category -- 2009 -- 2010
Comp pct -- 68.2 -- 64.2
TD-Int -- 13-3 -- 5-4
Passer rtg -- 115.2 -- 87.7
