Packers Game Balls: Rodgers & receivers lead Green Bay to an

For the first time in the franchise’s history Authentic JK Scott Jersey , the Green Bay Packers won a game in which they entered the fourth quarter down by at least 17 points. Shocker: Aaron Rodgers was the biggest reason for that, and it should come as no surprise that he gets our nod for the first Game Ball in the 24-23 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.Here are a few players who deserve special attention for their performances in the opening game of the season.QB Aaron RodgersWho else could get the top honor? Rodgers was hamstrung by an ugly offense and playcalling early on before suffering his ugly knee injury early in the second quarter, but his return jump-started that moribund unit and led to the comeback victory. Playing the second half essentially on one leg, he finished the day 20-for-30 with 286 yards and three touchdowns — one to each of his top three wide receivers and all of which came in the fourth quarter.After the game, Rodgers told NBC’s Michelle Tafoya why he was so intent on returning to the game after halftime:“It’s the Bear-Packer rivalry. It would have to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half. I went in the locker room, did all the tests ... I knew when I got back on the field in the second half, the adrenaline (would) start going, I’d be able to hang in there.”He did much more than just hang in there. He led the Packers to one of the team’s most memorable victories in the last several years.WR Randall CobbCobb was responsible for the game’s biggest play, hauling in a pass from Rodgers over the middle on third-and-ten from the Packers’ 25-yard line and finding space to go the distance for a go-ahead, 75-yard touchdown. But that play was hardly Cobb’s only notable one in the game. Not including that play http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/mason-crosby-jersey , Cobb still caught eight more passes for 67 yards, and he also served as the team’s punt returner with Trevor Davis inactive. Cobb only returned one of Patrick O’Donnell’s four punts, but he did so for seven yards and he provided sure hands on fair catches as well.All told, Cobb showed why he was the receiver the Packers kept instead of Jordy Nelson, as he served as Rodgers’ security blanket for much of the game.OLB Nick PerryThis isn’t awarded for a full-game performance, Perry didn’t play a ton, as Reggie Gilbert took a number of snaps on the edge, but late in the game he effectively sealed the deal. After a Clay Matthews roughing the passer penalty wiped out a critical fourth-down stop with the Packers up 24-23, Perry came up with a strip-sack of Mitchell Trubisky on another essential fourth down, all but locking in a Packers victory. Perry had a total of five tackles Womens Kentrell Brice Jersey , including that big play.Honorable mention: RT Bryan BulagaYes, I’m going there. Yes, Bulaga struggled to block Khalil Mack in the first half, particularly when DeShone Kizer took over for Rodgers in the second quarter. But after halftime, Bulaga largely kept Mack in check, as the superstar pass-rusher didn’t get much pressure on Rodgers at all in the final 30 minutes. Bulaga’s ability to hold up one-on-one during the Packers’ comeback was essential to the success of said comeback. The Green Bay Packers might get injured inside linebacker Oren Burks back for their game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.The rookie appeared to be in line to open the season as the starter inside alongside Blake Martinez when he hurt his shoulder during warmups before a preseason game last month in Oakland.He was cleared on Wednesday to return to practice as a full participant.Depth has also been replenished at running back, where Aaron Jones figures to return on Sunday after missing the season's first two games after being suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.At the least, the returns of Burks and Jones will help the Packers on special teams. They have each shown the talent to contribute in other ways too.Jones, who was also bothered by a hamstring injury in the preseason, ran for 448 yards and four touchdowns on 81 carries last year. He had two 100-yard games http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/corey-linsley-jersey , including 125 and a score on 19 carries in a win at Dallas on Oct. 8.Coach Mike McCarthy has said that Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery will remain atop the depth chart. Jones gives the Packers another option in the backfield with his slashing ability."Give the defense a little bit more to worry about," Williams said Thursday. "Aaron's just a sparkplug, really. He's always trying to open holes, especially if one's closed, he'll find another one really and bounce it outside."A third-round pick out of Vanderbilt, Burks moved up the depth chart after Jake Ryan was lost for the year in training camp with a torn ACL. The Packers traded for Antonio Morrison from the Colts to help with depth at inside linebacker after Burks went down. They also picked up Korey Toomer and James Crawford before the season started.Burks remains atop the depth chart inside next to Martinez, having raised his profile during the preseason."We'll see what the week brings us, McCarthy said before practice on Thursday. "You could see him progressing through training camp, so it will be great to get him back out there."Burks played inside linebacker and safety in college. His experience in coverage could help against the Redskins and running back Chris Thompson, who leads Washington with 19 receptions.RODGERS UPDATEMcCarthy expected quarterback Aaron Rodgers Womens Antonio Morrison Jersey , who is playing with a left knee injury, to follow a practice plan similar to last week before the Vikings game. Saturday was the only day that Rodgers practiced last week. He played well, especially considering the injury, completing 30 of 42 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown in the 29-29 tie with Minnesota.This week, McCarthy gave the whole team off from practice on Wednesday and elected to do a walkthrough instead, feeling that his players could use a break after a season-opening night game followed by the overtime game against Minnesota. Rodgers was due to focus on rehab on Thursday.INJURY REPORTBesides Rodgers, CB Kevin King (groin) also missed practice. ... CB Davon House (biceps) and S Josh Jones (ankle) were limited.
