6. Jordan Love and Romeo Doubs connection on full display

Romeo Doubs was questionable to play in Week 1 due to a hamstring injury. Doubs was active and made a huge impact. We saw all summer how Jordan Love leaned on Doubs. The two built an excellent connection on the practice field.

On Sunday, Love and Doubs connected on two touchdown passes. Doubs finished the day with four catches for 26 yards and two scores. He now has a week to get fully healthy ahead of an important game against the Atlanta Falcons. It's clear from this performance just how important Doubs is to Green Bay's offense.

5. AJ Dillon struggles in season opener

It wasn't a perfect day for the Packers offensively. While there were plenty of positives to take away, AJ Dillon made a slow start to the regular season. There was a clear contrast between the performances of Dillon and Aaron Jones. Jones made it look easy all afternoon, but Dillon couldn't get anything going.

The Packers kept giving him opportunities, but Dillon managed just 19 yards on 13 carries, an average of 1.5 yards per attempt. Dillon struggled to break tackles far too often. He did add two catches for 17 yards.

Better days are ahead for Dillon, but this wasn't a great performance from the Packers' fourth-year running back.
