The Green Bay Packers kept intact their perfect 2015 record yesterday, courtesy of a 24-10 win over the St. Louis Rams.

But, according to the team's star quarterback at least, things are far from perfect at the Lambeau Field franchise.

Struggling

Speaking in the aftermath of Sunday's game, Aaron Rodgers admitted the team has struggled on offense in recent weeks. A statement that, considering their 5-0 record, is likely to worry the NFC North team's upcoming opponents.

"We've been struggling the last couple of weeks," Rodgers told the Packers' official website.

"We've played three NFC West teams. The division is really known for its defense. We struggled. We have to adjust a little better. Obviously, I have to throw it better than I did today. I missed the throw to James (Jones) on the scramble. We turned the ball over too many times."

Rodgers endured an uncharacteristically poor game against the Rams, turning over the ball three times in a game for the first time since the 2009 season. 

Not all bad

Still, even with an 82.8 percent passer rating at the weekend, the reigning NFL MVP and the Packers appear to have a different definition of struggling to most.

The team ranks fifth in the league in scoring whilst Rodgers himself is behind only Tom Brady in the season's passer rating standings.

With the Packers' defense stepping up in recent weeks, and the likes of Davante Adams still to return from injury, those teams yet to face the franchise best hope any upturn in form for the offense is some way off.

There are plenty of teams across the league who would love to be "struggling" like the Packers right about now.
