2. Aaron Jones steps up with huge game

When the Packers give Aaron Jones the ball, good things happen. Before exiting the game early due to injury, the Bears had absolutely no answer for Jones.

The veteran running back turned nine carries into 41 yards and a touchdown at a healthy average of 4.6 yards per attempt. But his biggest contribution came as a receiver. Jones caught two passes for 86 yards and a touchdown, including a 51-yard score.

Jones had 11 touches for 127 yards and two touchdowns -- an incredible performance from the Packers' superstar running back.

1. Jordan Love makes perfect start as Packers starter

All eyes were on Jordan Love in his first game as the full-time starter. Aaron Rodgers has dominated this rivalry for years, so Love had big shoes to fill. But he couldn't have asked for a better start to the regular season.

Love never looked uncomfortable. He remained calm in the pocket and waited for his moments. He was accurate, made good decisions, and made some wow plays. All the same things we've seen throughout the summer.

Love completed 15 of 27 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns with a passer rating of 123.2. He looks a completely different player from earlier in his NFL career. Love is ready, and he put the league on notice in Week 1.
