Packers Thump Lions Behind Aaron Rodgers & Aaron Jones (35-17) to Bounce Back From Week 1 Blowout

One week after everyone destroyed the Packers for their three-point outing in Week 1, Aaron Rodgers and company scored 21 unanswered in the second half to blow out the Lions in Lambeau Field on Monday Night Football (35-17). Rodgers was stellar, completing 81 percent of his passes as he shredded Detroit (0-2) down the stretch. He tossed four TDs, including three to RB Aaron Jones. Green Bay (1-1) may have looked ugly in their 38-3 loss to the Saints in the opener, but never count out Rodgers.
