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.
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.
