So far so good for the short-lived career of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. It was another solid day for Rodgers, as he threw for 328 yards and three TD’s as the Pack topped the Lions 48-25 in Motown. The Pack built a good lead, as they were up 21-0 in the second quarter, but the Lions made it a game, at one point taking the lead 25-24.
It was the Pack though with a comeback on this Sunday, as Rodgers and company put up 28 fourth quarter points as the Pack piled on 447 yards of offense. Rodgers went 24-for-38 and was hot at the start and at the end, when it was important. Greg Jennings was his favorite target, as he pulled in six passes for 167 yards. Brandon Jackson led the running game with 61 yards on 7 carries.
The Lions put up a gutsy effort, but were short on the defensive side of the ball. QB Jon Kitna went 21-for-41 for 276 yards with two TD’s and three picks. The running game was held in check as rookie back Kevin Smith rushed for just 40 yards on 10 carries. Calvin Johnson had two TD’s and 129 yards on six catches.
Green Bay also did a good job holding the ball, as they had 35:28 in time of possession to 24:32 to the Lions. They had the lull in the middle of the game when Detroit rallied, but overall played a good game and deserved to be where they are at – which is 2-0 after two weeks of the season.
