Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams combine for incredible opening-drive touchdown

It’s an early 7-0 lead for the Packers against the 49ers on Thursday night.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers have started eight games in 2020 and scored on their opening offensive series in every one of them. The Packers got off to a tremendous start on Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers, and they got an absolutely beautiful touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams to cap it off and take a 7-0 lead.

First, however, the Packers got Aaron Jones going in his first game back from a calf injury. He accounted for four of the team’s first five plays on offense, two carries for 17 yards and two receptions for 20 yards. With a two-yard gain by Tyler Ervin mixed in, the Packers drove down to the 49ers’ 36-yard line when Rodgers unloaded a dime to the front left corner of the end zone.

Adams hauled in a tremendous catch, getting one foot down in bounds and sneaking his left forearm just inside the sideline in the end zone to complete the catch. The play stood on review, and Mason Crosby’s extra point gave the Packers an early 7-0 lead.
