With a definitive win over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers proved he is the best QB in football.

It may have been a back-and-forth struggle for control, but Aaron Rodgers clearly won the much-anticipated matchup with Tom Brady in what could very well be a preview of Superbowl XLIX. Now with the Arizona Cardinals struggling, the Packers are riding high and are in the perfect position for the NFC North title and maybe even No. 1 overall seed.
Aaron Rodgers has 20 TDs at home without a single INT this season. Those numbers are unreal – and in the past unreal numbers have generally led to regular season success, and more often than not a deep playoff run. The Packers have as good a chance or better as any team in football to get both by season’s end.
Here are the five biggest winners from Week 13 of the NFL season:
Green Bay Packers – If the Packers get the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs they might as well buy plane tickets to Arizona for February. That team is simply unbeatable at home.
St. Louis Rams – Nothing says “Dangerous Team” quite like a 52-0 blowout. Doesn’t matter if it’s against the Raiders or the 2008 Detroit Lions, that’s the sign of a team that is just one or two players away from being a playoff team or even a Superbowl contender.
Denver Broncos – With a win over the Chiefs compounded with a Patriots loss the Broncos now have a firm lead in the AFC West division and will likely be neck-and-neck with the Patriots for the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs.
San Diego Chargers – With a surprising upset over the Baltimore Ravens, the Chargers have basically risen from the dead and are now in the lead for an NFL Wildcard spot, and perhaps one win over the Broncos away from the AFC West division title.
New Orleans Saints – Five TDs from Drew Brees against the Steelers should calm down members of the Saints front office who are eager to find his long-term replacement. They can afford to take their time.
