The Atlanta Falcons did everything they could to get off to a good start on the
Green Bay Packers. They jumped out to a 14-0 lead, hitting on several key plays along the way. But the Falcons cooled off and the Packers offense picked up the pace and rebounded for a 25-14 win in Atlanta.
Aaron Rodgers threw for 396 yards and two touchdowns, hitting James Jones for 70 yards and Greg Jennings for 29 yards.
Rodgers completed passes to 12 different receivers. James Jones led the way with 5 receptions for 140 yards. Jennings and tight end Jermichael Finley caught 4 passes each.
The Falcons struggled to pressure the quarterback since week 1, but they got some pressure on Rodgers last night. However, Rodgers maintained his composure and led the Packers to 25-straight points in pulling out the win.
The Packers improved to 5-0, just the 6th time in the Packers’ 91-year NFL history.
