NFL Week 2 Recaps: Green Bay Packers Route Buffalo Bills 34-7
September 19th, 2010-  By Bryan Cross

It was a dominating performance for the Green Bay Packers against the Buffalo Bills in week two of the 2010 NFL Season, as Aaron Rodgers and company left no doubt, cruising to a 34-7 victory on Sunday afternoon at Lambeau field.

The Packers jumped out to an early lead in the first behind two Mason Crosby field goals, but did not manage to score a touchdown until the end of the opening quarter.  That, was courtesy of a Brandon Jackson one-yard run.  Jackson was starting in place of the injured Ryan Grant, who will miss the duration of the season due to an ankle injury that he suffered last week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

After that however, Jackson was shut down by the Bills defense, but that left Rodgers open to cut up the secondary.  Rodgers finished the day throwing for 255 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for one.  The first touchdown pass came in the third quarter, a seven-yarder to Donald Driver, which put the Packers up 20-7.  That lead was extended after Rodgers touchdown run.  The game was put away by Green Bay by Rodgers 30-yard touchdown pass to James Jones in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter.

Defensively for the Packers, linebacker Clay Matthews picked up right where he left off last week, tabbing three sacks on the day.  Matthews was not the only one in on the act however, as fellow linebacker Brandon Chillar and safety Morgan Burnett each picked off Bills’ quarterback Trent Edwards.

Buffalo managed just 186 yards of total offense on the afternoon, as they were unable to get anything productive

going.

The Lone bright spot for Buffalo was a second-quarter touchdown run by Fred Jackson to bring the game to 13-7.  But the Bills would get no closer.
Edwards tabbed 102 yards passing, completing 11 of 18 passes and two interceptions.

Entering the contest the Packers were installed as an asserted two-touchdown favorite on USA Online Sportsbooks and NFL Weekly Betting Lines, yet easily cover the line behind their 27-point victory.  The over/under was set at 43 points, and went the under, as the game’s total reached only 41 points.
