Mason Crosby's leg is corked. https://twitter.com/BillHuberSI/status/1177360645534228480

Brutal sport. Shepherd gets whacked helmet to helmet on the opening punt, with no flag, and then Jamaal Williams is taken off a gurney on a roughness call on Derek Barnett.

Bad drive for Sidney Jones = Great drive for Packers. Davante Adams beats Jones for 58 - the longest play of the season, with 35 YAC. On the TD, Sidney Jones has Aaron Jones dead in the backfield but can't get him down. A quick 7-0 lead. That's the sixth consecutive home game with a TD for Jones, setting a franchise record. Jim Taylor held the old mark.

Packers starting with a lot of their 3-3-5 alignment. No Goodson at linebacker. Redmond and Tramon are rotating as fifth DB.

Heck of a tackle by Amos on the Wentz scramble to force a punt.

In 9 minutes, Adams has three catches. Guess they wanted to get him the ball - logically.

Good thing I picked the Packers. It's 7-0 but a total ass-kicking. Adams with six catches for 107 yards.

How do you overcome your third-down woes? By not having any third downs. Just one in the first quarter - on the final play to Graham.

I don't know what pass interference is. Ertz contacts the defender (Amos) at the 6 and still has contact at the 2. But the refs say it is indeed not OPI and it's a touchdown. Eagles within 10-7.

And it's a kickoff return! First of the season. Smith gets it to the 24.

And the Packers are trailing for the first time since 3-0 vs. Chicago. Goedert easily beats Redmond for the TD. 14-13 Philly.

Crowd boos a bit as Rodgers runs down the clock to the 2-minute warning but that's smart football. It's second-and-6 and both teams have two timeouts.

Brandon Graham's first sack of the year is a huge one. Strip of Rodgers as he evades Marcedes Lewis.

Derek Barnett, excuse me. First sack.

Za'Darius Smith's knee, which had him questionable, seems to be an issue vs. the run. Peters blows him off the ball on Howard's 10-yard run. It's first-and-goal at the 4.

Allison, who I suggested should be benched at least somewhat, with two huge plays. Great catch between two Eagles defenders, though I think it was more Eagle-on-Eagle contact than it was an Allison sandwich. Then finds a hole in the zone for the TD. That is TD pass No. 343 for Rodgers, which moves him to ninth all-time ahead of Tarkenton.

Adams (158) had more yards in the half than the Eagles (146), who benefitted from the long return by Sanders, an out-of-bounds kickoff and the Rodgers fumble. Rodgers’ 241 passing yards in the half were more than he had in any game this season.

I have no idea what pass interference is, or the point of being able to challenge, if the Packers can't win a challenge on that third-down play to MVS.

Mack Hollins picks Blake Martinez and it's a touchdown. This will be reviewed .... it's supposed to be reviewed. Howard waltzes in for the touchdown. King breaks up the two-point play, which keeps it a seven-point game. Not a good move by Pederson.

Might need to consider going to Lucas Patrick and moving Turner to RT

Rodgers lives. What a drive. Alex Light is a turnstyle and, on the TD, Bradham is unblocked and Rodgers dodges him and hits Graham. What a series by 12. 27-27. Meanwhile, this game will be over by Saturday.

Kyler Fackrell had 10.5 sacks last season. Meanwhile, on third-and-10, he's on the bench. Amazing. I know none of us thought Fackrell was suddenly a great player but it's third-and-10!

Let us all hope that we can get a TD in a 1st and Goal situation this time. No more one handed, 50/50 Jimmy Graham fades

I have had this feeling for quite a while now. That small market teams like GB, do not get fair refereeing..... That helmet to helmet on Williams was not handled correctly.. The latest of many obvious refs kissing billionaire owners asses..
