Green Bay Packers Vs. San Diego Chargers Recap
October 18, 2015
All that the Green Bay Packer faithful can do leaving Lambeau Field yesterday afternoon is breath a heavy sigh of relief. The Packers remained unbeaten yesterday, hosting the San Diego Chargers.
While one might think the chilly temps of Wisconsin would adversely affect the boys from So Cal, it did not. After two Green Bay first quarter touchdowns, Chargerâ€™s QB Philip Rivers started to really heat up the cold Lambeau air.
Rogers would set a franchise record on the afternoon with over 500 yards passing and nearly doubling the man often mentioned as the best active quarterback in the game today. Aaron Rodgers threw for about half the yardage Rivers did on this Sunday, but matched him with 2 TD passes on the day.
It was the final drive that made the difference. San Diego rallied and drove the length of the field, sitting 1st and goal from the 3rd line, seemingly perched on the doorstep of sending the game into overtime. It was then that the Packer defense, riddled by Rivers all day, tightened up and thwarted all 4 attempts to tie the score.
Green Bay escaped with their record unblemished, but the Chargers last ditch failed hopes left them at a disappointing 2-4 to begin the 2015 season.
Green Bay Packers Vs. St. Louis Rams Recap
October 11, 2015
The rest of the National Football League should sit up and take notice, as one of the preseason favorites to contend for the Super Bowl is not only loaded with a rifle armed quarterback leading a highly potent offense, but these Green Bay Packers have a defensive unit to be reckoned with.
For the second week in a row, their defense team upstaged the Packerâ€™s offense. The 1st quarter of play was quick evidence that this Packer team is evenly balanced, as the offense took their first drive 56 yards against a pretty respectable St. Louis Rams defense with Aaron Rodgers finding Ty Montgomery for the first points of the game. The two top defenses would then control the rest of the 1st 15-minutes until Qyinten Rollins snatched an errant Nick Foles pass, racing 45 yards to pay dirt for a Green Bay pick-6 and a 2 touchdown lead.
The Rams would make a game of it in the 3rd quarter, scoring twice, the first on a nice 80-yard drive for a Tavon Austin TD catch from Foles. Greg Zuerlein would add a 42-yard field goal to bring the Rams with 4 points.
The Packers would then take control of the game defensively again, stalling the all the final St. Louis drives, while Aaron Rodgers hurled a long TD to James Jones, plus Mason Crosby tacked on a late Packer field goal to set the final 2-touchdown margin of victory and keep the Pack unbeaten in the 2015 season.
