Pretty simple, really.
Admit it, when NBC flashed the graphic about the Packers losing all those games by 4 points or less last year, your stomach turned. I know mine did. Credit Mike McCarthy for having a tremendous amount of faith in not only Rodgers but in his offensive line, to have the quarterback turn away from the pressure for a playaction fake. On a night where Rodgers could not be sure where the pressure would be coming from on one play to the next, to put him in the position of having to turn his back to the rush is a very, very big deal.
Needless to say, the offensive line delivered, not in resounding fashion as Rodgers still had to drift to his left after the play fake due to Alan Barbre almost getting beat again, but the job was done, leaving Rodgers to make what could become a season-defining throw.
