Rodgers showed that Week 1 against Seattle was a fluke. Making minced meat of the Jets defense in Week 2 he now gets to pit his offense against the Lions M.A.S.H. unit secondary. Expect another huge week.
Looked like a genius against the Seattle Seahawks, a game in which even I gave him no chance. After a stellar 2013, it has to be said. I think Rivers is for real. Until he proves me wrong he deserves to be considered a QB 1 during most weeks.

Pass rush on road is worrisome, but he should still be active in likely shootout.
Rivers is evidently matchup proof, but road game vs Bills isn't going to be easy.
