The Green Bay Packers were upset by the eventual-champion Giants in the second round of the NFL playoffs this season, but with their MVP quarterback on board they're still listed as the 6/1 favorites on the opening Super Bowl XLVII odds at Bovada.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers rolled to the best record in the league this season, losing just once in 16 games while posting an 11-5 mark against the spread. However, that all went out the window in the playoffs when they lost 37-20 at home to the Giants in the Divisional Round.
Rodgers posted a QB Rating of just 78.5 in that defeat, going 26 of 46 for 264 yards passing with two touchdowns and one interception – and getting outplayed by Giants counterpart Eli Manning in the process.
Still, Rodgers was named the league's MVP this year with a QB Rating of 122.5 to go along with 4,643 passing yards, 45 touchdown strikes, and only six interceptions. Rodgers also rushed for 257 yards and three scores on the year.
Green Bay has some work to do this offseason, most notably getting tight end Jermichael Finley signed to a new contract. Finley had 55 catches for 767 yards and eight touchdowns for the Packers this season, and could be a candidate to get the franchise tag.
Center Scott Wells, running back Ryan Grant, and backup quarterback Matt Flynn are all potential free agents this offseason as well for the Packers, with Wells another of the team's priorities but Flynn expected to look for work elsewhere as a starting quarterback.
