It was a soggy affair on a rainy Wisconsin afternoon as the Green Bay Packers took care of business against the visiting Denver Broncos to the tune of 27-16. The Packers are still undefeated; advancing to 3-0 and sitting atop the NFC North division standings.

As we approach the final contest of the first quarter of the season — a home game against the Philadelphia Eagles — a formula is emerging: play well enough on offense and trust that the defense will give the opposing quarterback fits. So far, so good, right? But is this sustainable? Will the offensive catch up with the defense, or do they lack the playmakers to truly flourish in Matt LaFleur’s scheme?

We’ve culled these questions and more in today’s episode, which is half game recap and half listener mailbag. Dig in!
