The Green Bay Packers have taken an early lead against the Buffalo Bills, getting some excellent play from their defense in the early going. The Packers lead 6-0 on Jimmy Graham’s first regular season touchdown from Aaron Rodgers.

The Bills got the ball first, but the Packers were able to force three-and-outs on each of Buffalo’s first two series. On the Packers’ second drive, Rodgers hit a wide-open Ty Montgomery for a 43-yard gain. Montgomery, lined up in the backfield, ran a wheel route and got open with a little help from a mini-pick by Davante Adams.

Three plays later, Rodgers found Graham in the flat, with Geronimo Allison running a slant on the same side and picking off Graham’s defender. Graham easily walked into the end zone for the short touchdown:

Mason Crosby hit the right upright on the ensuing point-after attempt, however, leaving the Packers with just a 6-0 lead.

Rodgers is 4 for 6 so far for 63 yards and the one touchdown. Stay tuned with the game in our game thread here.
