Luck vs. Rodgers try to keep moving past early season struggles and keep their teams in the thick of the playoff chase at Lambeau Field.
Prediction: Green Bay 35, Indianapolis 24
Andrew Luck vs. Aaron Rodgers is probably the marquee quarterback match up of week 9. A lot was made of the early-season struggles of the two elite quarterbacks, but both appear to be turning the corner midway through the season, and will face off in Lambeau for a game where both the Colts and Packers really need a win to stay in the playoff chase.
Luck vs. Rodgers has only happened once before, in 2012 (Luck’s rookie year), and the Colts came away with the win in Indianapolis with Luck throwing for more than 350 yards and Rodgers more than 230. With both big-armed, deceptively-mobile quarterbacks still in the prime of their careers, expect to see another prolific QB performance between the two stars in Luck vs. Rodgers.
The most-exciting aspect of the top quarterback match up of week 9 of Andrew Luck vs. Aaron Rodgers might be the two quarterbacks’ penchant for airing it out and taking shots down field. There might not be two quarterbacks who love going for long touchdown strikes than Luck and Rodgers, and their gun-slinging frequently produces games that are really fun to watch.
Where Luck and Rodgers differ is their accuracy and tendency to throw interceptions. Luck has a 58.8% completion percentage over his career while Rodgers has a 65% completion percentage. Additionally, Luck has thrown 60 interceptions in just five seasons while Rodgers has thrown only 69 in 12 seasons.
With that in mind, there is a good chance the second round of Andrew Luck vs. Aaron Rodgers comes down to accuracy and who is able to avoid turnovers.
