GREEN BAY, Wis. - 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, on Thursday night. Packers rookie Randall Cobb caught a touchdown from the reigning Super Bowl MVP and ran back a kickoff 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.

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. Aaron Rodgers engineered a last minute drive to set up a 30-yard field goal by Mason Crosby on the final play and the Packers (12-0) remained undefeated with a 38-35 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday. 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.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - This one is on Bill Davis. Aaron Rodgers is probably the best quarterback in the NFL right now. The Packers have a remarkable home-field advantage at Lambeau Field. The Eagles offense and special teams did Davis' defense no favors. And the coordinator simply doesn't have talent in the secondary like the Dolphins and Lions - teams that slowed Rodgers and competed with Green Bay by playing mostly man-to-man defense with a single high safety. Which is why Davis' decision to play mostly single high and leave cornerbacks Bradley Fletcher, Cary Williams, and Brandon Boykin in one-on-one situations against very good wide receivers with Rodgers pulling the trigger was a bit of a head scratcher.

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.

THE EAGLES' defensive meltdown Sunday at Green Bay began with a faulty assumption that the Packers would want to run more than they did. It continued with a fatal inability to generate enough pressure to make Aaron Rodgers uncomfortable, and too often it ended with Bradley Fletcher flailing ineffectively at Jordy Nelson or occasionally Randall Cobb somewhere downfield, as yet another Rodgers pass settled into the hands of a Packers receiver. As always, it was that last part that got everyone's attention.

GREEN BAY - At times, Aaron Rodgers seems almost bored. Rodgers is the best player on a very good team - logical, since he is the best player in a very deep league. He is the most accurate and efficient passer in history, an unflappable leader and a splendid athlete. He is football's Michael Jordan; the best, most polished quarterback in history. There is no shame losing to the best; not when he and his cast is fit and healthy, playing well and at home. 53-20? Walk it off. This was no more a referendum on the Eagles' capabilities than, say, the fact that Hakeem Olajuwon won only when Jordan did not play, or that Charles Barkley never won a title at all. The game left both teams at 7-3. There is a decent chance that they will meet again in January.

GREEN BAY - Bill Davis knew yesterday's game against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers wasn't going to be a picnic. The Eagles defensive coordinator knew there was a pretty good chance his unit was going to get roughed up. But since not showing up at Lambeau Field wasn't really an option, Davis tried to look at the game as a measuring stick, a test, that would gauge the progress of his defense. How far they've come. How far they still have to go. Well, boys, get on your walking shoes.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Reading too much into one 60-minute act of football is always a perilous exercise in the 21st-century NFL. Today's team of destiny could be tomorrow's downgraded discard, and yesterday's rejects always have a shot at redemption the following week. Now that we have that disclaimer out of the way, let's say this about what transpired in the wind and cold at Lambeau Field late Sunday afternoon: The Eagles looked so feeble and inferior against quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers that it is difficult to imagine them coming back here in January and winning a far more meaningful game.

THERE'S A CHANCE that if you've seen the Green Bay Packers play more than once this season, you've seen them play really well and also really, really poorly. The Packers looked amazing in last Sunday night's 55-14 dismemberment of a bitter rival, the Chicago Bears. But remember that Thursday night game at Seattle, the league's season opener, that ended with the Packers losing, 36-16? Every NFL pundit rushed to his Twitter account to proclaim that the Seahawks were going to repeat as the Super Bowl champs.

I don't spend a lot of time regretting decisions I've made in life, mostly because there's nothing I can do about them now. Still, I regret targeting Nick Foles ahead of Andrew Luck in my drafts this year. And though Foles hasn't been a bust by any stretch, I don't think this mistake is going to end so well for me. When it comes to fantasy drafting, most of us have regrets, don't we? Seriously, who thought DeMarco Murray would be a record-breaking beast? And weren't most so-called experts convinced that Antonio Gates was all washed up?
