It's hard to say how much they miss Raji because the Packers don't play a lot of base defense anymore. Raji was a rotation player in sub defense. He wouldn't be getting a ton of snaps.
He's been playing outside a bit in dime defense tonight, aka obvious passing situations.
Randall showed some rust. He didn't get his head around on that back-shoulder throw to Matthews and he got juked in the open field by Wentz.
This is the big question: Can the Packers do it for four quarters? We shall see. On that note, I'm out of here. See you guys later. Enjoy the game.
OK, I'm back. Got my DD coffee and I'm ready to go.
By the way, the Packers scored on their first opening drive since Atlanta. ;
They have allowed 23 points on second-half opening games in 10 games.
Matthews back in the middle to start the half.
Capers has brought heat from the slot a lot tonight. The Eagles are getting used to it. Needs to try something else.
Packers may have jumped here.
Second one of those on Perry. Really dumb. Now it's third and 1. Looked like was Daniels who jumped. Either way, dumb.
Eagles are running it away from where the Packers are blitzing. They must be showing their hand early.
Eagles definitely decided at halftime they were going to attack the left side of the Packers' defense. They've been running right at Peppers.
Datone Jones in the game for him now.
There's the interception the Packers have been begging for.
Wentz overthrows Ertz and HHCD is just waiting for him. Tells you what a really good hit can do to a QB.
Jones had some pressure again and it looked like Wentz just airmailed it.
Looks OK from here. It's very similar to Lambeau.
Montgomery starts out as the back.
There's your deep guy. Smart move. Adams just raised his arm up and begged for Rodgers to throw it.
It's obvious that Adams is the deep threat now.
Christine Michael in the game.
Not a lot, but he's good around the ball.
Nobody open. I thought at first Rodgers could have thrown it to Cobb, but there was a guy right there behind him.
