Rodgers accounts for 3 TDs, Packers beat Jaguars 27-23

As usual, the Packers enter the season as a Super Bowl contender. Adams, criticized heavily throughout the 2015 season, rose to his feet for a vicious spike of the football. Nelson missed just four regular-season games in the five-year stretch from 2010-14, and with the exception of 2012, when he battled hamstring problems, his statistical contributions rose each year.

With Rodgers throwing for two touchdowns and running for another, he now has the kind of weapons that he needs. Nelson, however, tore an ACL during the 2015 preseason. A key that could unlock the Packers' offense. He did not play a snap in the preseason but Packers coach Mike McCarthy expects Nelson to be "full-bore" for Week 1. But the Packers made a surprise move on roster cut-down day when they released longtime starter Josh Sitton. "We want to start the season off the right way in front of the home crowd".

"I'm not used to losing and I won't get used to losing - I can promise that", Jaguars rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey said.

Hard fought is an understatement; gritty, persistence, determination and a bit of luck here and there were enough to send the Packers back to Green Bay with the win. There's a lot of things that could happen differently. We went out there and battled through some heat. "So, it's always interesting to see which guys show up when it really counts". Still, the Jaguars are growing up - and there were all sorts of signs of that during and after the game.

Our division has had a lot of changing pieces since a year ago.

We have three tough opponents starting off and it doesn't get any easier when we travel to London to play Indy in Week 4. The question is can the Jags improve on defense?

"Quit throwing the ball to the other team", Bortles said of the next step in his career. Most likely, Janis will only play special teams as a punt gunner and only be used as a receiver in an emergency, but that remains to be seen. He was sacked once for no yards and didn't turn it over.

While Rodgers stirs the Packers' offensive drink, it will be up to Bradley's revamped defense to puts the brakes on their attack. With Nelson, Cook, the return of Ty Montgomery and the addition of Trevor Davis, how will the veteran signal-caller look with the new-look/old-look offense. Defensive tackle Malik Jackson, safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerback Prince Amukamara were part of the Jaguars' $220 million free-agent haul.

It was a private moment that seemed to signal the end of a long road back from a knee injury. First on third-and-goal, which the Jaguars stopped to force a chip-shot Mason Crosby field goal. "On offense, we've got to play better". The Green Bay Packers a come into Duval County to provide the Jaguars with a real test in the opener. We're not looking at the past.

Green Bay opens non-conference play in Week 1 against the Jaguars before hosting the Indianapolis Colts at Lambeau Field in Week 9. Randall Cobb was fighting injuries, Eddie Lacy was fighting China food, and the Jordy above Nelson was on I.R. The Jaguars' defense are young and talented, but a healthy receiving corps for Rodgers is frightening for any team.
