10. Touchdown drive shows potential of offense vs. Bears
With so many questions on offense entering the season, the Packers gave us a sign of what was to come in the season opener. In what was otherwise a battle of the two defenses, the only touchdown drive of the game was by Green Bay, and it showed how good the offense could be.
Prior to this moment, the Chicago Bears defense had been in control with the Packers unable to get much going. It was always going to be difficult for a brand-new offense to make a fast start against a strong defense on the road.
Trailing by three points, the Packers opened up their drive with a beautiful pass from Aaron Rodgers to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, set up with play-action. It was a 47-yard connection which opened the door for the best drive of the game. Rodgers then found Marcedes Lewis and Davante Adams before connecting with Jimmy Graham in the end zone to give the Packers the lead.
In a game dominated by defense, this was the sign fans needed to show the potential of the offense. Up against a Bears defense playing at a high level and with confidence, the Packers swung the momentum their way and needed just four plays to find the end zone.
