GREEN BAY - Aaron Rodgers came out on top in a memorable opening-night duel with Drew Brees and the Green Bay Packers came up with a goal-line stand on the final play of the game to beat the New Orleans Saints, 42-34, last night. Packers rookie receiver Randall Cobb caught a touchdown from Rodgers and ran a kickoff back 108 yards for a score in the third quarter - tying an NFL record for the longest kickoff return in history. Rodgers threw for 312 yards and three touchdowns.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers threw five touchdown passes against the Chicago Bears to help the Green Bay Packers nail down the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The 35-21 mauling of the Bears allowed the Packers to claim another round of bragging rights in the NFL's most storied rivalry - and knocked Chicago out of the playoff chase. Rodgers, in throwing for five scores for the first time in his career, found tight end Jermichael Finley for a score in the first quarter then tossed a pair of touchdowns to Jordy Nelson, and another two to James Jones.

Davante Adams, Packers: Figures to benefit most after Jordy Nelson ripped up his knee. Adams had 38-446-3 last year in the regular season, but is best remembered for 7-117-1 in the playoff win over Dallas. Nelson Agholor, Eagles: Average draft position in ESPN leagues is 83rd. Agholor is a WR4/5 with obvious high upside in Chip Kelly's offense. Keenan Allen, Chargers: Has cleaned up his diet - literally eschewing fried food for more salads. So at least he'll be hungry for a bounce-back season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - For the second straight week, Cam Newton threw for more than 400 yards, sidestepped pass rushers and moved the Carolina Panthers up and down the field. But leave it to Aaron Rodgers and the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers to spoil Newton's home debut. Rodgers threw for 308 yards and two scores, while the Packers withstood a 432-yard passing day from the No. 1 overall draft pick to beat the Panthers, 30-23, on Sunday. A week after throwing for 422 yards - most in league history by a rookie in his professional debut - Newton topped himself by setting an NFL rookie record for passing yardage in a game.

Aaron Rodgers is shrugging off Brett Favre's assessment of his success. The reigning Super Bowl MVP would rather talk about the accomplishments of his Green Bay Packers teammates than dwell on what his predecessor thinks. "I'm just going to say that I was really proud of our team," Rodgers said. "It takes 53 guys to win a championship and we had the right recipe last year and we're trying to do the same thing this season. " In a radio interview with Atlanta's 790 The Zone, Favre made remarks that could be interpreted as a subtle attempt to minimize Rodgers' achievements.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Green Bay Packers' perfect season came to a crashing halt against the struggling Kansas City Chiefs, who had just fired their coach and were starting a new quarterback. Kyle Orton threw for 299 yards to outduel Aaron Rodgers, and the Chiefs rallied behind interim coach Romeo Crennel for a shocking, 19-14 victory on Sunday that ended the Packers' 19-game winning streak. It was their first loss since Dec. 19, 2010, at New England. Their 19-game streak was second only to a 21-game run by New England in 2003-04.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers is putting up MVP-worthy numbers again, ranking near the top for touchdown passes, completions, and yards passing in the NFL this season. Imagine if he'd had all of his favorite toys for the whole year. With Randall Cobb back from a sprained ankle and Jordy Nelson planning to play in Saturday night's NFC wild-card game against Minnesota, the Green Bay Packers finally will have all four top receivers for the first time in, essentially, three months.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Green Bay Packers are still perfect.

Rodgers hit three passes of more than 18 yards on the drive in the final 58 seconds as the Super Bowl champions won their 18th straight game and clinched a playoff spot. The Giants (6-6) lost their fourth straight.

NFC East Dallas Cowboys Last season: 12-4 (lost to Green Bay in a divisional playoff game). Coach: Jason Garrett (41-31, 6th season). Missing Murray? With the NFL's leading rusher DeMarco Murray now on the Eagles, Tony Romo, who had an NFL-leading 113.2 passer rating, may have to throw more, which might cut down on his effectiveness. Outlook: The Cowboys have to prove they can run the ball in Murray's absence and they are still below average defensively. There hasn't been a repeat NFC East champ since the Eagles won four in a row from 2001-2004, so recent history isn't on the Cowboys' side.

A realistic perfect draft is to secure the best value in each round, methodically building a roster that will soar from Week 1, withstand an injury to one or two key players, and peak during the fantasy playoffs. With that lofty goal in mind, I've analyzed the average draft position (ADP) of each player from multiple fantasy sites to determine the best pick in each round. Key assumptions: We're in a 10-team, non-keeper league using a standard scoring system that starts one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, and one tight end, a kicker, and team defense; and we are drafting from the middle (fifth)

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, and three starting offensive linemen did not have suited up for Green Bay's potent offense Saturday night. But for the first time this summer, the Packers had all 11 preferred starters on defense for their preseason game against the Eagles. And Green Bay couldn't wait to see how it fared against Chip Kelly's fastbreak offense. Afterward, the Packers were beaten, broken, and still trying to catch their breath. The Eagles scored touchdowns on all three of their possessions.

EAGLES RADIO VOICE Merrill Reese was disappointed when he entered the NovaCare media room yesterday and heard that Aaron Rodgers isn't expected to play when the Eagles visit Green Bay tomorrow night. Someone observed that Rodgers, 31, a two-time NFL MVP, probably doesn't need to play the Eagles in the preseason to get ready to lead the Packers into the games that count. "Yes, but I need him to play!" Reese joked. Like many fans and media observers, Reese had been looking forward to seeing how the Eagles' much-discussed defensive improvements would stack up, even in a meaningless game, against the NFC's top quarterback.

LAMBEAU FIELD is where the overhaul began, isn't it? Technically, the Eagles still had six games left, and a 7-3 record, and a great chance at the playoffs. But consider the words Chip Kelly used last month when he offered his opinion on where the Eagles were at the end of last season. Not close. Where did they look less close than ever? Lambeau Field. After each of the Eagles' other five losses, you could envision a scenario in which a few shrewd tweaks would result in a different outcome.

Just as important as your initial pick can be, it pales in comparison to the handful of selections you'll make - or miss - several rounds later in your fantasy football draft. As happy as you may be to land C.J. Anderson, Justin Forsett, or Odell Beckham, Jr. now, they won't be the bargains they were last year for the savvy players who stole them late and rode them into the postseason. Fantasy veterans know the secret to great drafting is not simply choosing the best players available, but doing so no earlier than necessary.

SEATTLE - Really, nobody outside of Saskatchewan knew much about Jon Ryan . . . until he turned the tide that sent the Seahawks back to the Super Bowl. Maybe, no one outside of State College knew much about Garry Gilliam . . . until he caught Ryan's unlikely pass on a fake field goal for a touchdown. Sadly, no one outside of South Carolina knew much about Brandon Bostick . . . until he tried to grab for glory and lost it all for the Packers. They were the faces of their franchises after the Seahawks came back and won the NFC Championship Game yesterday, 28-22, in overtime: one, pale and ruddy and delighted with his newfound celebrity; another, beaming with Penn State slyness; the third, a blank pit of despair as he faced a future of infamy.

IT WAS that seven-game stretch starting in late September that probably clinched this year's fantasy football MVP award for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The man was a mountain of consistency the first 3 months of the season. Three touchdowns and 300 yards were as predictable as Packers players leaping into the stands after scoring touchdowns. In those seven games, Rodgers threw for 23 touchdowns and two interceptions. Rodgers garnered nearly 70 percent of readers' votes to win fantasy MVP for the second time in 4 years.

LANDOVER, Md. - For six games in each of at least the next few seasons, the Eagles, barring something unforeseen, will be tasked with defending Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham Jr., or DeSean Jackson. As if it weren't obvious enough before this past weekend, Saturday's 27-24 debacle of a loss to the last-place Redskins heavily reinforced the Eagles' need to upgrade their secondary. Bradley Fletcher was torched by his man for the second time in 7 days, the third in a six-game span. "I just didn't get it done," the embattled cornerback said before leaving the visitor's locker room at FedEx Field on Saturday, about 24 hours before yesterday's Cowboys' 42-7 win over the Colts officially eliminated the 9-6 Eagles from postseason contention.
