No defense? Green Bay's 11th in PPG, 11th in Passing yards allowed per game, and fourth in sacks per game. They've been a top ten run defense for much of the year.

Rodgers was the MVP last year. He's had a solid season, but he isn't returning from a year off and his team isn't drastically better like Denver is. The Packers have a deeper receiver core than Denver does so he has more tools to work with, even if Jennings and Nelson haven't been 100% (but they were hurt at different times).

Manning has done more for his team.

Yet Manning is getting his nuts swallowed by everyone. He plays in a competition-less division, has thrown more interceptions, has a lower QBR, hasn't beaten an elite team all season, yet he has everything Rodgers doesn't have on his team. This Broncos squad made the playoffs last year with ****ing Tim Tebow. So the real question is how valuable exactly is Manning to this team? Basically a higher seed in the playoffs. That's it.
The Broncos had the second toughest schedule at the beginning of the year. The AFC West is awful, but their schedule was brutal in the first six weeks and they've run the table since then.

Here is how Manning is valuable to this team:

-The Broncos finished 3rd in 3rd down completion compared to 20th the year before.
-Finished fourth in passing yards per game compared to last.
-Up to 30.1 PPG compared to 19.3 the year before
-13-3 record with winning 11 in a row compared to barely making the playoffs at 8-8

The Broncos' biggest weaknesses last year were corrected with Manning.

This is all while also returning from a career threatening injury.
