Cedric Benson

but the Green Bay Packers appeared to get their offense back on track and they needed every bit of it, beating the New Orleans Saints 28-27 at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers passed for 319 yards and 4 touchdowns as the Packers improved to 2-2 with the win. 

The Packers rolled up 30 first downs, 421 total yards and much of it came in a no-huddle offense.
