It wasn't the outside criticism that fueled the Packers after their loss to the Bucs last week, WR Davante Adams said: "It was more so we felt like we owed it to ourselves." Adams did his part with 13 catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns.

The Packers' much-maligned pass rush came up with 13 pressures today, their season high, per ESPN Stats & Information.

Also, Davante Adams' 196 receiving yards (on 13 catches -- one shy of the franchise record, which he has a piece of, are most by a Packers WR since Jordy Nelson had 209 in 2014.

Without Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams has 114 total yards from scrimmage (19 carries for 77 yards and a touchdown, plus four receptions for 37 yards).

That was the first time the Packers had a punt blocked in the Shawn Mennenga era. The last one was by Miami on Dec. 2, 2018 -- JK Scott's rookie year. This was one was on backup RB Dexter Williams, who missed his block.

Ohio State has regained the No. 1 spot in FPI's rankings following its 52-17 win over Nebraska in its season opener. FPI is a predictive measure of team quality, which is why a team like Penn State is at No. 6 despite a loss yesterday. Michigan sits just outside the top 10 at No. 11.

Davante Adams now has two 40 PPR fantasy point performances in his career, and they have both come in 2020 (also Week 1, 40.4 points)

Davante Adams is up to 174 receiving yards on 11 catches (and two TDs). And there's still more than a quarter to go. The franchise record for catches in a game is 14 (he owns a share of that).

Aaron Rodgers' bounce-back: 16-of-21 for 197 with three TDs and a 144.2 passer rating at halftime vs. Texans. It's the 27th time Rodgers has thrown three TD passes in a half since. That's second-most behind Drew Brees (30) since 2008.

Davante Adams with eight catches for 114 yards and a touchdown in the first half. It's the second time this season he's had eight catches and 100 receiving yards in the first half of a game this season. The rest of the NFL has done that once: Henry Ruggs III in Week 5 at Chiefs.

Aaron Rodgers completed his first seven targets to Davante Adams for 98 yards and a TD before that last incompletion.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Davante Adams with a near perfect first quarter: Five targets, five catches for 47 yards and a touchdown. Only issue was one illegal shift penalty, but he followed that with a 28-yard breadbasket catch on third-and-10.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

With the 3-yard TD to Davante Adams, the Packers have scored on their opening possession in all six games played this season -- the only team to score on all of their opening drives. Two TDs and four FGs.

Jamaal Williams will get an increased workload with Aaron Jones out, and there's reason to think he'll be productive: He's averaging 4.3 yards per carry, including 1.85 yards per carry AFTER contact (slightly better than Jones' 1.8 after contact average). Jones has the edge in yards per carry BEFORE contact (3.4 to 2.5). Also, the Texans rank last in rushing D (allowing 180 yards per game).
