The Green Bay Packers face the Kansas City Chiefs for Week 3 of the regular NFL season. With the notable performance of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers managed to take the lead at 14 - 0 for the early part of the match. As the Kansas City Chiefs struggle to find a way to stop the raging power of the Green Bay Packers star, the team of Aaron Rodgers continue to dominate Lambeau Field.
The first two touchdowns delivered by Aaron Rodgers in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs were caught by Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb, respectively. Moreover, it looks like Aaron Rodgers is definitely on fire as he already managed to complete passes to five different receivers this early on the NFL game.
While Aaron Rodgers appear to be bursting at the seams with aggression and talent for Monday Night Football, it looks like some members of the Green Bay Packers squad will be limping during the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. In a report by Lisa Salters of ESPN, the Green Bay Packers might not play Eddie Lacy despite his upgrade to the probable list due to the persistent issue involving his right ankle. Over the weekend, the running back opted to stay away from the field and take as much time to recuperate.
As for Davante Adams, the Green Bay Packers decided to categorize him as a limited participant in an effort to alleviate the issues concerning his left ankle injury. However, Davante Adams was later on placed under the probable list on Sunday. Both Davante Adams and Eddie Lacy sustained the said injuries during the game against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 of the regular NFL game.
Meanwhile, the loss of wide receiver Jordy Nelson truly delivered a devastating impact in the manner by which the Green Bay Packers are handling their gameplays. It could be recalled that Aaron Rodgers lamented the exit of Jordy Nelson earlier this year due to an injury sustained during a preseason match. In fact, the Green Bay Packers quarterback went even as far as calling for a decrease in the number of games played by NFL stars in an effort to reduce the risks of incurring injuries.
As the Green Bay Packers move forward this NFL season, the spot usually occupied by Jordy Nelson is now taken over by Randall Cobb - an NFL star that some critics believe to be below the playing capacity of the original holder of the post.
"As for how the offense changes without Nelson, the Packers don't have quite the same explosive-play potential," noted Joel Thorman of SB Nation. The sports analyst went on to add, "Some of their receivers can take the top off at times, but nobody left matches Nelson's unique ability to pull safeties to his side of the field and still find a way to get open deep."
