Football is back.
Scoring was not difficult to come by for either team in the season opener. In addition to Rodgers’ spectacular performance, Packers running back James Starks rushed for 57 yards and one touchdown while wide receivers Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson each caught one touchdown pass.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees passed for three touchdowns and 419 yards in the losing effort. New Orleans wide receiver Devery Henderson racked up 100 yards receiving on the night and recorded his first touchdown reception of the season.
Now off to a 1-0 start, the Packers are hoping to become the first team since the 2003-04 New England Patriots to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles.
