Aaron Rodgers Starts Second Packers Game, Scores, Stats, News


On the day that Brett Favre made his first start as a member of the New York Jets Aaron Rodgers made his second for the Green Bay Packers. Favre had a better day going five for six with a touchdown not looking like he missed a beat. While Rodgers looked sharp in his first start the Packers did not fare well in his second against the SF 49ers losing by a score of 34 to 6.

Aaron Rodgers on the day completed 9 of 16 passes for 58 yards and 0 touchdowns and interceptions. While Rodgers was sacked four times on the day and his receivers did drop some balls he was not as sharp as he was in the opener. While Rodgers does not have to compete for his starting job like 49ers QB and fellow former first round pick Alex Smith he does have to compete with the ghost of Favre who started off as a hit in his first game as a Jet.

The Packers had a tough game all around gaining only 46 yards of total offense in the first half. Kregg Lumpkin led the Packers rushing with 10 carries for 51 yards. While Vernand Morency led the Packers receiving with one catch for 20 yards. Rockie quarterback Matt Flynn continued to put up strong stats in mop up time for the Packers completing 5 of 6 passes for 33 yards, however he also lost two fumbles. Second round pick Brian Brohm completed 4 of 9 passes for 33 yards. On the day the Packers lost five fumbles two by Flynn and one each by Charles Woodson, Evan Morre, and Brian Brohm.
