My beloved team-the defending Super Bowl champs Green Bay Packers defeated the New Orleans Saints in this explosive season opener 42-34 at Lambeau Field. What a game! The Pack looked to have the game wrapped up in the first quarter before the Saints came alive with Drew Brees' quickfire passes.
Here are my thoughts of the game:
1) The Packers are clearly still a HOT team! Aaron Rodgers passes are like lightning!
2) Make no doubt, New Orleans is a GREAT team. The do have a lot of weapons in their arsenal.
3) Packer seemed to have a running game going (finally) with two good running backs at their disposal.
4) Special teams on both sides of the field have stepped up. Their were two kick off returns in the game.
5) Neither quarterbacks made an interception.
All in all it was an awesome game, a great way to start the season!
