The Green Bay Packers had a lot of great individual performances in 2020. Let’s take a look at some of the best.

The Green Bay Packers went 13-3, won the NFC North Division title, and came up one game short of the Super Bowl for the second consecutive season. While there were lots of standout performances, here’s the top five.

Jaire Alexander

Week 1 at Minnesota Vikings
4 tackles, 1 sack, 1 safety, 1 interception

In the Green Bay Packers first game of the season, Jaire Alexander put the league on notice and established himself as one of the premier cornerbacks in the NFL. Early in the second quarter, with the Packers down 7-3, Alexander snuck in on a corner blitz and sacked Kirk Cousins in the endzone for a safety. Two possessions later, Jaire made a great break on the ball and came up with an interception.

Aaron Jones

Week 2 vs. Detroit Lions
18 carries, 168 yards, 2 touchdowns, 4 receptions, 68 yards, 1 touchdown

After a relatively quiet first game, Aaron Jones broke out in the Green Bay Packers home opener against the Lions in Week 2. While Jones was active in the passing game and consistently picked up big chunks of yardage on the ground, it was his 75-yard touchdown run to start the second half that stood out.

Robert Tonyan

Week 4 vs. Atlanta Falcons
6 receptions, 98 yards, 3 touchdowns

With their bye week coming up, the Green Bay Packers still weren’t sure what kind of talent they had at the tight end position heading into their Week 4 matchup against the Falcons. Big Bob Tonyan picked as good a night as any to have his break out game, racking up 3 touchdowns and nearly 100 yards on Monday Night Football. Tonyan put some minds at ease, proving he could be a problem for defenses, and gave Green Bay a consistent threat at the position.

Za’Darius Smith

Week 4 vs. Atlanta Falcons
8 tackles, 3 sacks

In an effort to not let the offense have all the fun in Week 4 against the Falcons, Za’Darius Smith also chose the nationally televised game to have his best performance of the season. The Green Bay Packers linebacker spent a good majority in the backfield, registering three sacks, four tackles for loss, and five quarterback hits en route to a Green Bay victory.

Davante Adams

Week 16 vs. Tennessee Titans
11 receptions, 142 yards, 3 touchdowns

In a game that took place in the middle of a blizzard, Davante Adams was red-hot and torched the Titans defense all night. Adams and quarterback Aaron Rodgers seemed to be on the same page from the start as they connected for a touchdown on the game’s opening drive before connecting again in the second quarter and once more in the third. While most players were unable to find enough traction in the snow, Adams seemed to get himself open any time the Green Bay Packers needed a big play.

Honorable Mention

AJ Dillon

Week 16 vs. Tennessee Titans
21 carries, 124 yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 reception, 5 yards

The Green Bay Packers second-round draft pick found himself buried on the depth chart behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams’s during his rookie season but capitalized when given the opportunity. In his only game as the featured back, he went off for 124 rushing yards and two touchdowns to help keep the game out of reach from the Titans.

 

Notable Performance

 

Though Aaron Rodgers didn’t make this list, he did have several games that should get some consideration (he is the MVP after all). Rodgers had seven games with at least four touchdowns. In those seven games, Aaron’s completion percentage was 76%, he averaged 280 yards, and threw just one interception. While there are some pretty incredible individual performances on this list, Aaron Rodgers’s consistency throughout the 2020 season may be the most impressive of them all.
