Packers Fall To Saints 38 3 In Week 1

While Rodgers may have felt the need to trash-talk the home crowd, he wasn't particularly impressive when attacking Chicago's secondary. He hit few long passes and mostly worked the defense with body blows on underneath routes.

Rodgers finished with only 195 passing yards, while top deep threat Davante Adams had only four receptions for 89 yards.

But the Packers showed that they can excel with the short-passing game and the run when they have to. Rodgers still tossed a pair of touchdown passes and rushed for a third score. Running backs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon were superb.

Jones rushed for 76 yards and a 5.8 yards-per-carry average, while Dillon carried for 59 yards and a 5.4 yards-per-carry average. That's good work against a Bears defense ranked 14th in yards per attempt allowed.

The fact that Green Bay didn't consistently air it out and still won decisively should please the Packers faithful. Championship-caliber teams can win in a variety of ways, and Green Bay is proving it can do exactly that.
