Packers Take Care of Bills Sunday, Move to 2-0
For at least a half, many wondered if Aaron Rodgers’ pre-season surgeon-like performance might have been a bit of a fluke, and then the second half happened. With the Packers leading 13-7 at halftime, Rodgers came out firing on all cylinders to finish 11-for-13 with two passing touchdowns and another rushing touchdown. Overall, he finished with a QB rating of 116 and looked like a quarterback ready to dominate going forward.
Clay Matthews followed up his three-sack performance in Philadelphia with three more sacks, this time at the expense of Trent Edwards, and was the key to the Packers holding the Bills to just 186 total yards. Matthews, who leads the league in sacks two weeks in, has to be an early favorite for defensive player of the year, and at the very least has the Packers’ defense picking up right where it left off in 2009 (minus the Arizona playoff game).
