Three TDs in nine passes for Aaron Rodgers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Some sharp passing from quarterback Aaron Rodgers has given the Green Bay Packers a two-touchdown lead (21-7) midway through the second quarter over the Detroit Lions.

Rodgers threaded a needle to hit tight end Jermichael Finley for a 13-yard touchdown pass and later found a wide-open Donald Driver for 48-yard gain. The latter pass set up a 17-yard scoring toss to receiver Greg Jennings, a ball Rodgers drilled over the head of Lions cornerback Jonathan Wade.

In all, Rodgers has completed eight of his first nine passes for 131 yards and three touchdowns. His only incompletion was a pass thrown out of the end zone.

We’ll have some additional thoughts at halftime.
