Aaron Rodgers makes Jaguars pay for early turnover

Maybe, just maybe, preseason football is overrated.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers certainly didn’t look like a guy who needed any time to get warmed up, crisply taking advantage of a Jaguars turnover and giving his side a quick 7-0 lead on the road.

Rodgers was up to his usual tricks, catching the Jaguars with 12 men on a field (though they needed a challenge to get the refs to notice it), and scrambling for a touchdown after rolling out to buy time.

The drive also featured a healthy wide receiver Jordy Nelson playing every snap, and newly fit running back Eddie Lacy converting a fourth down.

It was a sharp start for an offense that didn’t get any time together in the preseason, since Rodgers played in one game.

The Jaguars did make it easy for them, with an early Blake Bortles interception giving the Packers the short field.

    Just run the ball down the Packers’ throat.

    They are soft just like their coach, their QB and their fans.

    Yep, Jax rushed for 49 yards for the entire game a 1.9 yard per carry average. I’ll take that kind of ‘soft’ all season long.
