The Green Bay Packers shut out Buffalo 22-0 Sunday in their most-complete game of the young season. The Bills punted eight times and had three turnovers in their first 11 possessions. Packer defenders sacked the quarterback seven times in a dominating performance. The Packer offense was less impressive, producing 423 total yards, but just two touchdowns. Aaron Jones rushed for one of them, to go with 65 yards or 11 carries. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers moved a little better in the pocket and threw for 298 yards and a T-D, but he also had an interception and a lost fumble. Coach Mike McCarthy said the key to the game was getting a good start.
He also commented on how well his QB was moving.
Speaking of Rodgers, he said the offence was terrible, and out of sync.
He did praise the play of Jones though.
The Packers play at Detroit next Sunday.
