The Green Bay Packers season opener was a nightmare as they were destroyed 38-3 by the New Orleans Saints in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday. The Packers were behind 17-0 early on and could only score a goal before halftime.
Of course, it wasn’t the night of Aaron Rodgers, who blew the chances of the team to get back in the game with a red-zone interception on the first drive of the second half. From there, the Packers couldn’t get it together, also thanks to a great defense from New Orleans.
Saints QB Jameis Winston completed 14 of 20 passes and throwed five touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers midway through the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Rodgers had a 36.8 passer rating and completed 15 out of 28 passes with two interceptions. He was replaced by Jordan Love in the fourth quarter. Not a good start of the season.
