Broncos Vs. Packers: Aaron Rodgers Dismantles Denver, 49-23

The Denver Broncos fell to 1-3 following their 49-23 defeat at the arms and legs of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Broncos were down, 21-17, late in the second quarter before Aaron Rodgers found a wide-open Greg Jennings for the touchdown and 28-17 lead. it only got worse in the second half.

Aaron Rodgers directed the Packers to 21 straight points in the second half before Denver scored again. He ran for a touchdown and threw for two more. He finished the game 29-of-38 for 408 yards and four touchdown passes. His first interception proved of little consequence as Kyle Orton threw his second interception of the game on the following drive. Orton attempted to chuck one to Brandon Lloyd, but he horribly underthrew his receiver. Rodgers' second also proved similar, as Rahim Moore picked him off before Orton threw another interception.

Orton's second interception came on a desperation throw, but his first was a 30-yard return by Charles Woodson. Orton had looked good after that by throwing two touchdown passes to Eric Decker, but then he went silent until he hit Daniel Fells for a touchdown late in the game. Orton finished the game at 22-of-32 passing for 273 yards.

Willis McGahee broke 100 yards for the second time this season with 103 on 15 carries. Brandon Lloyd's role in this offense increased with eight receptions for 136 yards. Decker caught six passes for 56 yards. Rookie Von Miller had two sacks, his first two-sack game, and now has four on the season.

The Broncos return to Mile High next week to host the San Diego Chargers.

Broncos Vs. Packers Score: Kyle Orton, Eric Decker Connect For 2nd TD, Enter Halftime Down, 28-17, To Green Bay

After going down 21-3 to start the game, the Denver Broncos are playing in a completely different game. Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton had a costly interception for a pick-six by Charles Woodson, but the embattled Orton has looked completely different since then. Orton had gone 6-of-6 for 120 yards, two touchdown passes and a 158.3 quarterback rating at the end of those two touchdown drives.

Eric Decker came up with both touchdown receptions. His second one was an impressive 33-yard reception. He has three catches for 39 yards. Brandon Lloyd has looked like the 2010 version we expected at the start of the season. He has six catches for 97 yards. His longest was a 44-yard gain on a flea flicker play that set up Decker's first touchdown score.

However, Packers did have one last scoring drive that was a relentless drive down the field. Aaron Rodgers found a wide-open Greg Jennings for a 17-yard touchdown pass and the 28-17 halftime lead.
