–Adrian Peterson ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns, while Alex Smith threw for two scores – all in the first half – to beat the Packers Sunday afternoon at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. Green Bay fell behind 14-0 after one quarter and trailed 28-10 at halftime in the loss. A hobbled Aaron Rodgers completed 27 passes for 265 yards and two scores in the loss. Rodgers was sacked four times and had a receiving corps plagued by a number of drops on the afternoon. And, another week, another questionable roughing the passer penalty on linebacker Clay Matthews. This one came in the third quarter, as Matthews was flagged for roughing Alex Smith, a week after a roughing penalty on Matthews wiped out a potential game-clinching interception against Minnesota. Green Bay is 1-1-1 and hosts the Buffalo Bills on Sunday
