Pack Bests Broncos, Moves to 3-0 on the Year
Green Bay 27, Denver 16
–Aaron Rodgers threw for 245 yards and a touchdown, and Aaron Jones added two scores on the ground as the Packers defeated the Broncos at Lambeau Field on Sunday to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2015. Two of Green Bay’s free agent signings on defense continued to prove their worth in the win on Sunday – as Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith combined for five sacks of Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco. In addition, rookie first round pick Rashan Gary recorded a sack and recovered a fumble and fellow first round safety Darnell Savage got his first NFL interception in the win. It’s a quick turnaround for the Packers, as they host Philadelphia for Thursday Night Football this week. Kickoff Thursday is at 7:20 pm.
