Packers defeat Broncos 27-16 to improve to 3-0

Behind a strong defensive effort that forced three turnovers and sacked Broncos Quarterback Joe Flacco six times the Packers improve to 3-0.

The defense was complimented by an offense that once again started hot by putting up 17 points in the first half.

The first score was a 40 yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Marquez Valdez-Scantling on a free play as the Broncos jumped offside.

The Packers would go on to add a Mason Crosby Field Goal and a seven yard Aaron Jones touchdown run that was set up by a fumble recovery to head into the half up 17-10.

Jones would add his second score of the day in the third quarter, this time from one yard out in the third quarter to give Green Bay a two score lead.

The Bronco’s Phillip Lindsey would add a one yard touchdown of his own in the third to pull Denver within eight points after a missed extra point, but the Packers would once again answer.

Crosby would boot a 41 yard Field Goal through the uprights to once again make it a two-score lead in the fourth, before the defense closed out the game to secure the 27-16 win.

The Packers will now turn around on a short week to face the Philadelphia Eagles this Thursday at Lambeau Field.
