Yes, A.J. Dillon bulldozed his way for two punishing touchdown runs. Of course, Aaron Jones rushed for 90 big yards. And yes, Aaron Rodgers completed almost 75% of his passes. However, the player of the night for the Green Bay Packers against the Los Angeles Rams was returner Keisean Nixon. He put the Packers’ offense in very advantageous positions all game long. Nixon created shorter fields in which to travel than the Packers have enjoyed this year.
Amari Rodgers Who?
In the three games Nixon has handled the return duties for Green Bay, it is no coincidence that the Packers’ offense has averaged 28.3 points per game; the field position Nixon is giving them has a lot to do with it. Though in a loss to Philadelphia, Nixon averaged 34.4 yards per kick return with a long of 53, and the Packers scored a season-high 33 points. In Monday’s win over the Rams, Nixon set the Packers up nicely more than once, going 31.7 yards over three kick returns and 18.0 yards over two punt returns.
In the ten games Amari Rodgers handled the return job for Green Bay this year, he averaged just 20.3 yards per kick return and 7.0 yards from 20 punt returns. By the way, the Packers went just 4-6 during his time on the roster.
Nixon Is the Jolt the Packers Need
Yes, the sample size is small, but from what Packers fans have seen thus far from Keisean Nixon, they undoubtedly feel anxious for more and more from the 25-year-old from South Carolina. Shorter fields, a punishing running game to take advantage of that field position, and oh yeah, a future Hall of Famer at quarterback who does not have to carry the entire burden on his shoulders makes for a promising outlook over the final stretch of the season.
