At Lambeau Field on Monday night, the Green Bay Packers hold a commanding 20-3 lead through two quarters of play. The Packers haven’t needed Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Kenny Clark, or their other injured players in this contest, as both the offense and defense have been effective this evening.
In the first quarter, Aaron Rodgers had a perfect passer rating, going 7-for-8 for 100 yards and a touchdown. Rodgers would finish the half just shy of the perfect 158.3, going 18-for-22 for 228 yards and three scores for a rating of 149.4. Meanwhile, Aaron Jones got the Packers on the board early with a six-yard touchdown reception and ran the football seven times for 38 yards, though he did not touch the football at all in the second quarter.
Jones’ running mate Jamaal Williams leads the Packers in receiving with six catches and 77 yards. Tight end Robert Tonyan has four catches for 57 yards, including a pair of touchdowns.
The Falcons’ only points of the game came on a 20-play drive that took about ten minutes off the clock. Atlanta converted a pair of fourth downs on the drive but settled for a field goal from inside the ten-yard line after a 94-yard series stalled out at the five.
The Packers will receive the opening kickoff of the second half after the Falcons won the pregame coin toss and elected to receive in the first half.
Keep it here throughout the second half to see if the Packers can move to 4-0.
