Packers Top Saints In A Great Start To The 2011 NFL Season

So, that was an awesome game, no?

The quarterbacks, QB Aaron Rodgers and QB Drew Brees, put on a clinic as the Green Bay Packers topped the New Orleans Saints, 42-34. The game ended on the one-yard line with no time left after Brees had driven the Saints the length of the field. The Packers had committed a pass interference in the end zone penalty giving the Saints the ball on the one-yard line on the last play of the game and RB Mark Ingram was stuffed by the Packers big defensive line.

Rodgers was on fire throughout the night throwing three touchdown passes in the first quarter. He ended up with 312 yards passing and three touchdowns. Brees may have been better, particularly in the second half, as he ended with over 400 yards passing and three touchdowns.

What a start to the NFL season. These were the last two Super Bowl winners and each of them looks like they could make it back to the big game this year as well. The Packers won but the Saints are clearly one of the top teams in the league.

I'll have another post coming about this game, comparing a few things the Saints and Packers do to what we want the Chiefs to do. These are two of the best teams in the league so there are things to learn from this game.
