What We Saw: Week 10

The QB List staff catches you up on everything you missed during Week 10 of the 2020 NFL season.

Jaguars @ Packers


This was an ugly, sloppy game, though it wasn’t nearly on the same level of sloppiness as the game in Cleveland. Aaron Rodgers and company did enough to skirt by and earn the victory in this one, overcoming a largely ineffective day on the ground with enough big plays through the air despite the windy conditions. Jake Luton, who is a significantly worse QB than Rodgers, was not able to overcome the weather or the Packers pass rush, as he was sacked three times and should have had three interceptions as well. The Packers will travel to Indianapolis next Sunday with a 7-2 record after winning this one 24-20.


Jacksonville Jaguars




Jake Luton: 18/35, 169 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 3 sacks


Jake Luton is just a guy. From what I watched of this one, I wasn’t very impressed. He threw an interception late in the 2nd half that was just a bad decision all around, and it directly led to a Packers’ FG right before the end of the 1st half. He had another bad pass late in the 3rd where he lobbed it up off his back foot and threw into a group of players, but luckily for him it was batted out of bounds and incomplete. It should have been intercepted, and another pass late in the 4th to Keelan Cole also should have been intercepted, so he was lucky to escape with only one on the day.

He did have a really nice throw to Keelan Cole for a touchdown in the third quarter, but otherwise there wasn’t anything special here.



For the most part, Luton was simply below average at best in this one and looked hesitant for a lot of the game. All you need to see from Luton is his final play of the game. After being sacked on back to back plays, Luton ran around like a headless chicken and made a poor pass to James Robinson that wasn’t nearly good enough to convert a 4th and 26 play. Luton can rest safely on your wire for the remainder of the season.



Running Backs


James Robinson: 23 carries, 109 yards | 5 targets, 2 receptions, 3 yards


James Robinson had every carry for the Jaguars on Sunday, and while his 109 yards help you out, the two TDs that were called back on penalties really leave a sour taste in your mouth. Robinson is a clear RB1 for the rest of the season, especially if the QB in this offense continues to be inconsistent. Some better discipline by the offensive line should help Robinson get in the end zone in future weeks, so don’t let this disappointment get you down.


Wide Receivers/Tight Ends


DJ Chark Jr.: 5 targets, 4 receptions, 56 yards

Keelan Cole Sr.: 7 targets, 5 receptions, 47 yards, 1 TDs | 1 Punt Return TD

Chris Conley: 8 targets, 4 receptions, 43 yards

Tyler Eifert: 4 targets, 2 receptions, 15 yards


Keelan Cole was the man in this one, making a nice grab on a great throw by Luton and also scoring on a punt return earlier in the game. Watch him juke out the punter here – the poor guy stood no chance.



The 90-yard punt return was the longest in Jaguars’ franchise history.

Chris Conley actually led the team in targets on Sunday, but he didn’t really do anything special with any of his four catches. He’s just a guy, and honestly so is Cole. DJ Chark had similar production in this one, so my guess is that Luton will continue to spread the ball around moving forward. Chark is, however, the best receiver on the field for Jacksonville and he showed it when he went up to catch a bullet of a pass from Luton late in the third quarter. He was also targeted on a deep ball early in the 2nd which bounced off the defender’s back, but would have been a score otherwise.


Green Bay Packers




Aaron Rodgers: 24/34, 325 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT, 1 sack | 3 carries, 4 yards, TD


Despite the bad weather, Aaron Rodgers got his. He was far more efficient than Luton, and his yardage total also benefited from a 78-yard touchdown catch and run by Marques Valdes-Scantling, but there is no doubt he was the best player in this game. He scrambled for his first rushing touchdown of the season late in the 2nd quarter and contributed a third touchdown later on to Davante Adams.

It wasn’t all good, however, as Rodgers threw an interception with 1:16 left in the third quarter on a pass to MVS, but the defender undercut the route and it was a pretty good defensive play. He also nearly threw a second pick in the third quarter on a 4th down that would have been equivalent to a punt. In fact, for real-life purposes, it would have been better if the ball was intercepted, as it would have been Jacksonville’s ball around their own 15-yard line as opposed to the 40-yard line where they ended up being. Rodgers is a set-it-and-forget-it QB the rest of the way this season.


Running Backs


Aaron Jones: 13 carries, 46 yards, 1 fumble | 6 targets, 5 receptions, 49 yards

Jamaal Williams: 8 carries, 30 yards | 4 targets, 3 receptions, 25 yards


It was a pedestrian day for Aaron Jones, as he only ran the ball 13 times for 46 yards. A large chunk of those yards came on a single long run early in the 4th quarter, so those who started Jones are lucky the day wasn’t even worse. His five receptions helped salvage the day in PPR formats, but we were all certainly hoping for a lot more in this one. The Jaguars’ defense was surprising decent against the run this week, stuffing Jones on a 3rd and 1 run late in the game to give Jacksonville a chance for a game-winning drive. Jones and the Packers will have a touch matchup next week in Indianapolis.


Wide Receivers/Tight Ends


Davante Adams: 12 targets, 8 receptions, 66 yards, 1 TD, 1 fumbles

Marquez Valdes-Scantling: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 149 yards, 1 TD

Robert Tonyan: 4 targets, 3 receptions, 33 yards

Tyler Ervin: 1 targets, 1 receptions, 3 yards


Marquez Valdes-Scantling had the play of the day on Sunday, scoring on a 78-yard catch and run while juking defenders and making the referee fly through the air along the way. It was a career day for the young receiver, but with Alan Lazard potentially coming back next week he should be relegated to the number three or four option in this receiving corps.



Davante Adams experienced all of the highs and lows on Sunday, and had a down day by his standards. Here he is fumbling in the third quarter…



He then injured his ankle on the next series, and spend a good amount of time in the tent on the sideline. He wasn’t on the field when the Packers failed to convert on fourth-and-3, and they could have used him in what nearly ended up being Rodgers’ second interception. He came back later in the game to score the eventual game-winning touchdown on a well-executed play-action fake by both him and Rodgers.




Robert Tonyan‘s day was disappointing, but it could have been a lot worse. His three catches for 33 yards were propped up by a wide-open catch and run in the fourth quarter that went for about 20ish yards. 7.3 points from your tight-end isn’t ideal, but it’s a lot better than the three points he would have had if not for that final catch. I’m pretty lukewarm on him the rest of the year, and will certainly be looking elsewhere next week in Indianapolis.
