One drive in, the Green Bay Packers’ offense looks as pretty as winter snow in Wisconsin. After the Tennessee Titans booted the opening kickoff out of bounds, the Packers drove 60 yards in eight plays to open the scoring on Sunday Night Football. And of course, it was Davante Adams finding the end zone.

Adams recorded his 15th receiving touchdown of the season to finish off the drive, diving in for a five-yard score to give the Packers a 6-0 lead. That was his third reception of the series, picking up 20 yards on those three plays.

Adams came into Sunday’s game with 98 catches on the season, meaning he has now hit the century mark in receptions on the season, doing so in just 13 games. This is the second time that Adams has hit 100 receptions, the first being in 2018 when he set his career-high with 111 catches for 1,386 yards.

The 15th touchdown for Adams ties Jordy Nelson’s 2011 season for third place in a single season by a Packer, trailing only Sterling Sharpe with 18 in 1994 and Don Hutson’s 17 in 1942 for the top mark in team history.

On the opening drive, Aaron Rodgers completed all five of his passes for 40 yards, while Aaron Jones picked up 20 yards on three carries for the remainder of the yardage on the drive.
