Aaron Rodgers has been stuck in a rut during Green Bay's 3-4-1 start. The veteran quarterback has completed a career-low 60.6 percent of his passes this season, dropping to 28th in the NFL.

He has had three games under the 60-percent mark and another at exactly 60 percent. In his 10 years starting under center, Rodgers has connected with receivers on 65.2 percent of his passes.

Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said there are multiple reasons why Rodgers is off to a rocky start.

“I think it’s a combination of a lot of factors,” Philbin said. “It’s something we’re certainly aware of, and something I see us in the second half of getting back to where we need to be.”
