Packers hang on to beat pesky Jaguars on the road

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy (27) goes up over Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Tashaun Gipson for a gain during the first half of an NFL football game in Jacksonville, Fla., Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016.(AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack) AP

The Packers were the better team, but they needed every minute of the game to prove it.

Green Bay survived a tough opener on the road, hanging on for a 27-23 win at Jacksonville.

Their defense stopped the Jaguars on a fourth-and-1 with 16 seconds left, ending what had been an otherwise impressive effort for Blake Bortles and a young offense which made tremendous strides a year ago.

But they were still playing Aaron Rodgers, whose across-the-body touchdown pass to Davante Adams, while being dragged down from behind just before halftime was the difference.

The two sides traded field goals in the second half, with Green Bay unable to put the Jags away. But a number of small miscues, including some clock management issues that left them without timeouts they needed late, doomed the Jaguars.

    The Jags coming out party will have to wait another week I guess. But hey, look how close the score was! Gus Bradley deserves a three year extension at least for that!

  2. outlawshark says: Sep 11, 2016 4:20 PM

    That was a brutal game, the Jags gave the Packers all they could handle. Look out for Jax this year.

    Fortunately for the Packers, they have a bye next weekend.

  3. stellarperformance says: Sep 11, 2016 4:22 PM

    Jags have a pretty good QB and receivers. Big numbers last year with two 1,000 yard receivers. Looks like they will produce big again this year. Packers D came up big and played it straight. They didn’t have any fall-in-my-lap lucky plays, as some teams did today.

  4. packsupersoldier says: Sep 11, 2016 4:24 PM

    Takeaways…

    The D came up big in the end against a powerful offense.

    Lane Taylor is just fine.

    Jordy is back.

    Gotta work on getting the plays in faster.

    Aaron Rodgers is still Aaron Rodgers.

    Need to get Cook more involved.

    Hope that Shields is OK.

    All in all, a great win for the Packers in 100 degree weather.

  5. lambeaudungbarn says: Sep 11, 2016 4:28 PM

    Packers get shut out NEXT week. Might as well just get drunk Pack fans! It will be your only week 2 pleasure!

  6. shaggytoodle says: Sep 11, 2016 4:31 PM

    Hats off to the Jags, playing a tough game, and keeping it close, Packer fans know that its tough watching your favorite lose a bunch of close games as that’s how Rodgers first year as a starter was, but it paid off, because you learn how to handle those situations better the more you are in them. If the Jags can play like that all season and they will be in the mix for a playoff spot if division if 9 wins gets it again this season.

  7. The Almighty Cabbage says: Sep 11, 2016 4:31 PM

    What a game. This was the first time I’ve really seen Blake Bortles. Jags fans should be absolutely thrilled with his selection. That kid can flat-out play. Deep balls, short balls, scrambling, running for gain, commanding the offense, etc, etc, etc.

    I’m just glad the Pack got them in week one. They are indeed for real and they’re only going to get better as the season progresses.

  8. jpaq68 says: Sep 11, 2016 4:32 PM

    True Jags are for real

  9. skol4life says: Sep 11, 2016 4:33 PM

    The forgot what a bad defense looks like until I saw the end of the Packers game. Bad play call by the Jags and luck reigns in bleacher town.

  10. va4favre says: Sep 11, 2016 4:37 PM

    I did not see much from Lacey. Was it the heat?

  11. 250dollarnflowner says: Sep 11, 2016 4:37 PM

    i don’t think ed lost any weight. erin threw for 199 with jordie back?? defense was swiss cheese. pass protection looked bad. overrated team

  12. bart15np says: Sep 11, 2016 4:40 PM

    Bortles is a stud, jags offense very good. Great win on the road packers

  13. jagsfanugh says: Sep 11, 2016 4:41 PM

    That last call (Decision) wasn’t smart. Otherwise i really feel good about this season. The Jags showed they are not the same of ole. Great test for them to set the season. Green Bay is might get another SB win this year. Aaron Rodgers is unreal.

    I wouldn’t be saying that crap if I were you, Cheesehead. It WILL come back to bite you in the butt. Neither Lil Erin or wonky kneed Jordy did exceptionally well and the juicy fruit twins, Matthews and Peppers, were pedestrian against a pedestrian team. Come to momma next week, Cheesy, come to momma.

  17. tjacks7 says: Sep 11, 2016 4:45 PM

    I guess the only good thing that came of the Teddy injury is that we may actually see a good game next week. The Vikings elite defense against the Packers mediocre offense. And the Vikings underwhelming offense against the Packers mediocre defense.

  18. photoguy13 says: Sep 11, 2016 4:47 PM

    Lacey carried the ball 14 times for 61 yards. He played his role well and he’ll only get better as the season progresses.

    I can say EXACTLY the same thing about the Titans. They are definitely for real and lil Erin better watch out—they BLITZ doncha know, and that Mariota ACTUALLY connects with his receivers.

  20. Wisconsin77 says: Sep 11, 2016 4:49 PM

    Good win for the Packers. They had to not only bettle the Jags and the refs who were obviously favoring the Jags, they also had to battle the heat and humidity.

    As the weather cools the Pack attack is only going to get better! See you all in February!

  21. thisistheonlygame says: Sep 11, 2016 4:50 PM

    I do not understand all the shots at a team this post did not even reference. Why are they in your head packer fans?

    Jaxs fans do not seem to be so distracted.

  22. minnescrotums says: Sep 11, 2016 4:50 PM

    Wait…

    Are the Vikings fans, who got 1.4 yards per carry from their “star,” coming here to say the Packers are bad, for beating a better team?

    Interesting.

    I didn’t think people could marry their sisters, but Vikings fans proved me wrong!

  23. tokyosandblaster says: Sep 11, 2016 4:52 PM

    The Jags are going to be a great team this year. I’d wager that they’ll be 10-6 or 11-5.

    Well beyond what the purple pansies of Minnesota will accomplish.

    Adrian Peterson looks pretty done.

  24. codythao35 says: Sep 11, 2016 4:52 PM

    Any team would be scared to play against Vikings defense this year. Rodgers will eat dirt next week and Pepper/long hair dude will be eating turf.

  25. deltaoracle says: Sep 11, 2016 4:55 PM

    With their free agents and high draft choices, the Jags are a much improved team.
    That said, GB will have to get a lot better if they want to make a splash this year.
    And oh Leather – you mean the refs who called a penalty to wipe out an INT by GB that would have ended the game? Yeah, I thought you meant those refs.

    You should talk, Cheeser. You’ll be lucky if you even sniff the NFCN championship. And you DARE criticize AP with super fat Eddie on your team. He’s lost weight, my foot. The D from Minny will gas him (and they’ll sack the crap outa lil Erin too). I’m actually betting on it.

  34. allight59 says: Sep 11, 2016 5:12 PM

    From what I saw of the Packer offense, doubt they can score more than 20 points next week. Erin is officially on the decline and Eddy’s weight loss hasn’t helped. Keep relying on desperation throws like the one to Adams to end the half. Bradford and the Vikings will win by at least two scores. Diggs will catch for over 150 and AP will run for over 100. Gonna be fun to take control of the NFC North and never look back.

    From what everyone saw of the Vikings, they’ll be lucky to score 6 points next weekends. They don’t have anywhere near the weapons that the Jags have, and Rodgers and the Packers won’t gift 14 points to the Vikings like Mariota did.

    The Packers will have it won by halftime, and Brett Hundley will be finishing the game.

    Today was probably 1 of 4 or 5 wins for the Vikings.

    Rodgers is washed up, Eddie is fat, the defense sucks. Blah blah blah. Viking trolls are so pedestrian. We allowed fewer rushing yards than your team, outscored your team, and played a tougher opponent. I think y’all are so mouthy because your trying to avoid the fact that your RB is just showed that he is officially washed up and you’ve got no offense. Why else would you come in here throwing shade on Lacy when he had a much better game than your star?

  46. usdcoyotesfan says: Sep 11, 2016 5:32 PM

    As a Packers fan, I think the Jaguars should’ve gone for it instead of kicking that last field goal (although I’m obviously glad they didn’t, and probably for good reason) on their 2nd to last drive. They had been unstoppable on 4th down so far, maybe would’ve scored a TD, and won it with a FG.

    Packers made some nice plays in that game.

    But, c’mon Packer fans….there were some bad calls and no calls that went the Packers way. AR15 had a sure TD if DB doesn’t hold him…no call. That PI call on Cyprien at end of half was terrible. GB get TD on that one. A couple of encroachment calls were a joke as well. Off-setting personal fouls on a third down….pathetic. And a few others.

    If you can’t see that the NFL darling Packers are getting the calls over the Jags, I give you fans less football IQ credit than I thought you had.

  54. richardparker123 says: Sep 11, 2016 6:24 PM

    The Packers are not the Titans, Purple fans. Let’s see how Vikes handle a real football team coming to town next week.

    Meanwhile, this just in: the Jaguars are a good team. Packers committed no turnovers, gave Jags nothing cheap. Jacksonville is up and coming. Gave GB all it could handle.

  55. pkrlvr says: Sep 11, 2016 6:27 PM

  57. philcodean says: Sep 11, 2016 6:33 PM

    Great, gritty win today. This is the kind of game that could have easily been lost against a young, upstart team like the Jags. Frustrating play calling by McC on the 3 rushes inside the Jag 10 yard line that resulted in a field goal. I wanna see more J Cook and Eddie overall….I know they left a lot in the playbook that will be unleashed Week 2 in Minni. Will be an early test for both NFCN teams, but am liking the GB run defense out of the gate. Welcome back Jordy!

    The Vikings not only own the all-time NFL record for the most postseason losses, they also own the all-time NFL postseason record for one-and-done appearances.

    Among those losses are 41-0 Giants, 2015 Walsh, 1999 Anderson, (4) SuperBowl defeats, the Favre brainfart, and the game that gave the name to Hail Mary, losing to the Cowboys with 22 seconds left in the game. There are many more……not just losses, epic chokes.

    Don’t even start comparing the postseason history of the Vikings with the all-time NFL record-holder of more postseason championships than any other team, ever, the Green Bay Packers.

    Pick another fight. You can barely count the ways you’ve lost this one.

    I can say EXACTLY the same thing about the Titans. They are definitely for real and lil Erin better watch out—they BLITZ doncha know, and that Mariota ACTUALLY connects with his receivers.

    Well of course you can, Linda… now that I’ve written it for you. What does Henderson have to do with this? Last I looked, he was playing for the Jets.

    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    The Vikings not only own the all-time NFL record for the most postseason losses, they also own the all-time NFL postseason record for one-and-done appearances.

    Among those losses are 41-0 Giants, 2015 Walsh, 1999 Anderson, (4) SuperBowl defeats, the Favre brainfart, and the game that gave the name to Hail Mary, losing to the Cowboys with 22 seconds left in the game. There are many more……not just losses, epic chokes.

    Don’t even start comparing the postseason history of the Vikings with the all-time NFL record-holder of more postseason championships than any other team, ever, the Green Bay Packers.

    Pick another fight. You can barely count the ways you’ve lost this one.

    Sigh. Try to follow along. We are talking about the most epic choke job. Not history. Packers, youve got history. Congrats for being in the league sine 1921 or whatever it is. The nfc choke-ionship game is by far the most epic choke job by any team EVER

    I think you meant to say the Vikings. The Vikings offense didn’t score a single TD, and the Titans gave the Vikings the ball twice for defensive scores. The offense just had to nothing. It’s the ultimate football example of gift-wrapping.

    Packers made some nice plays in that game.

    But, c’mon Packer fans….there were some bad calls and no calls that went the Packers way. AR15 had a sure TD if DB doesn’t hold him…no call. That PI call on Cyprien at end of half was terrible. GB get TD on that one. A couple of encroachment calls were a joke as well. Off-setting personal fouls on a third down….pathetic. And a few others.
    __________

    Like when Jordy got his arm held by the defender on the sideline in front of the GB bench? Offsetting penalties are pathetic? Whats more pathetic is if you start talking smack and shoving on a player 8 yards off the field of play and don’t know a flag is coming is pathetic.

    It’s the refs first game too and they missed calls on both sides, and I think they were letting both teams get away with some physical play on recievers, it isn’t nor will it ever be perfect, but if you want to be mad at someone, be upset with the team for time management the 4th quarter smashing through TO’s. like a drunk guy eating taco ball at Bar Close.

    I didn’t realize that being a Bear fan meant that I couldn’t like other Chicago teams, and that would make me a bandwagon fan.

    Being a realist about the teams I pull for is pretty normal. If I jumped around spouting about how great my team is when it’s not would make me look like a fool, or worse yet, a Viking fan. It’s pretty clear that the Bears aren’t going anywhere for awhile.

    The Packer fans do just fine making you look stupid without me. I just happen to share their dislike for Vikings’ fans. While I’m not a Packer fan, I do respect what they have accomplished, which is a lot more than the Vikings, both recently and historically.

    Moreover, the Bears and Packers share a lot of history, going back to the formation of the NFL, so that the Vikings could hop on the foundations that they built and ride George Halas’ coattails into the NFL.

    Even you can’t believe that.

    Joining the NFL as an expansion team it only took the Vikings eight years to take over what is now called the NFC North.

    From 1968 they won the division every year. After a 1 year layoff, they won it for the next 6 years straight.

    In the 80’s they made the playoffs 5 times, in the 90’s 7 times, on the 00’s they made it 4 times and in the 10’s they’ve already made it twice.

    If you want to talk about a team getting a little sniff of relevance in 25 years – talk about your Packers and their 1972 playoff appearance where they couldn’t even score a TD.

    No it won’t. It will be a low scoring affair with the Vikings offense failing to score a single point. Which means it will be boring. The Packers will win by simply not turning the ball over even once. I blame Zimmer and his defense for ruining what once were great games. You know like 38-10 and the like.
