This is the West Coast offense as it should be played. Lots of first downs. Take what the defense gives you.
Lions brought a safety down to the run side and so Rodgers threw to the right to Nelson quick. Probably didn't even call it. Just gave Nelson a look.
Looks like on his thumb. Not much tape.
Yes, I think that's part of it. I think they're playing a much worse defense than Minnesota's and they're doing it without having to worry about not hearing the snap count. Makes a big difference.
No, he's actually substituting more than normal.
Now, FB Aaron Ripkowski is going to the locker room.
It's getting crowded in there.
Injuries are: Cook, Martinez, Randall, Ripkowski.
The Lions go zero blitz and Rodgers gets it off to Nelson on the fade. Heck of a catch by Nelson.
Two starters and a key backup.
Rodgers used the hard count to see who was coming and then shifted Starks over to pick up the blitz. Nelson beat Darius Slay for that touchdown.
That's only the second time Rodgers has thrown for at least four TDs in a half. Anyone know the other time?
Nelson now has six receptions for 101 yards and 2 TDs.
Ding, ding, ding. How many did he throw?
Actually, Ryan G, you were first. Nice call.
For this week. I don't judge seasons on one week. Just like last week wasn't the end of the world, this one isn't the start of a Super Bowl run.
Well, that's the risk with playing an undrafted free agent for the first time in his career.
He's going to make mistakes. That one is as costly aas it could be given the score.
Seemed like Hawkins didn't think Jones was going to get the ball.
Oh, he tripped on his heel. That's what got him off balance.
He has to get Jones down on the ground afterward though.
32 seconds to go 80 yards for a TD.
