A couple of quick throws – slants to Jared Cook and a 14-yard TD to Davante Adams – and one improvisational play to Randall Cobb. And suddenly Aaron Rodgers looks like Aaron Rodgers again.

Have the Packers tried any "short KO's?"

Now, can we stop them with all the injuries on defense. Take away the run the pass defense will eventually get one or two turnovers.

To help with LB issues, the Lions have been playing with one LB at points on the first series, Tahir Whitehead. They supplemented with Tavon Wilson lining up in a traditional LB spot as well as other players.

Excellent read for Aaron Rodgers on the TD pass to WR Davante Adams. Quick slant route vs. man-coverage. Adams created space off the release. Great footwork. 7-0 Packers over the Lions in the first quarter.

The Lions clearly missing Ameer Abdullah. Theo Riddick with five carries for minus-10 yards on Detroit's first drive. Every time they handed the ball off, it either gained nothing or sent the Lions backward.

Need to tighten up in coverage, especially the slot guys. No running so far for Detroit -3 yards and includes a scramble by Stafford for 7.

What an unbelievably smart play by Montgomery on the kick-off.

Does that rule make zero sense to anyone else?

The Packers had five tackles for loss on that 15-play Lions drive that resulted in a field goal. The NFL's No. 1 run defense living up so far.
