Packers take 7-3 lead on Jimmy Graham touchdown

The Packers had minus-12 yards and no first downs on nine first-quarter plays. They have four plays, 74 yards and a touchdown in the second.

Green Bay scored in a hurry in the second quarter, needing only 1:35 to get into the end zone.

Aaron Rodgers connected with tight end Jimmy Graham for an 8-yard score and a 7-3 lead.

The touchdown came three plays after Rodgers found Marquez Valdes-Scantling all alone for a 47-yard gain to the Chicago 27.

Rodgers did not look good until his fourth drive, and Mitchell Trubisky still is trying to find his way, starting 5-for-10 for 48 yards.

  1. Battle of defenses….one excellent in the Bears and the other a very good and improved Packer defense. Love this black & blue slugfest for the start of the 100th NFL season. Go Pack!

    Very impressed with our defense so far. Both teams seem rusty offensively but that’s to be expected
    Rodgers didn’t play all preseason and the bears hc outsmarts himself. The offenses are terrible do to terrible coaching.

  3. Trubisky and the Bears OL look awful. Some really good RBs and WRs will go to waste on that roster this season if those other guys don’t get it together.

  4. Both teams don’t look very good. Yeah, it’s early, but that’s no longer an excuse. It’s time to play football!

  5. I can’t believe the Bears traded up 1 spot for Trubisky, what were they thinking. Nagy must be so disappointed realizing he could have been the heir in KC with Mahomes.

  6. That’s a nice way to say that these teams have no offenses. Rodgers looks completely lost out there. And it’s already clear the Packers have made another horrendous coaching hire.
    We just beat the team that knocked you out of the playoffs last year. Deal with it. And good luck in week 2, you’re gonna need it.
