The E-A-G-L-E-S won in dramatic fashion Thursday night in some of the most hostel territory in all of football Lambeau Field.
It was the Aaron Rogers, Davante Adams show for the first three quarters, in the fourth the Eagles D stepped up huge. The Packers got out to an early 10-0 led by halftime the Birds were up 21-20.
The Eagles running backs slashed Green Bays defense for 158 yards the one-two punch of Howard and Sanders was reminiscent of the power run game days in Philly. Devante tore apart the Eagles corners who lost three starters to injury, for 180 yards and 10 catches.
The Packers running game was none existent Aaron Jones averaged a meager 1.6 average with 13 touches for 21 yards. Rogers led the team in rushing with 46 yards, and threw for 422 yards with 2 touchdowns and one very costly interception his first of the season.
Carson Wentz went 16 of 27 for 160 yards and 3 touchdowns. Zach Ertz to no surprise led the team with 7 catches for 65 yards.
It all came down to the final drive by far the best way to end a football game, Rogers and the Pack were driving. Around the 30 second mark they were on the Eagles goal-line Rogers pass got deflected into the arms of Nigel Bradham. The Birds made two defensive stances in the fourth to preserve the 34-27 victory.
