Aaron Rodgers puts the Green Bay Packers on top with a touchdown pass while catching the Dallas Cowboys defense off guard.

The Cowboys defense looks to be out of their element in the early going.

From 34 yards out, Richard Rodgers put a nice move on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee, and Aaron used a free play to find his tight end in the endzone, giving the Green Bay Packers a 7-3 lead.

Aaron Rodgers drew two different illegal substitution penalties on the Packers opening drive, allowing shots downfield, including the first touchdown to tight end Richard Rodgers (video above). The other came on a third and short allowing the Packers to continue the drive leading to the Rodgers touchdown.

Ty Montgomery then punched one in to put the Pack up 14-3.

Aaron Rodgers appears to be extremely comfortable in the pocket in the early goings, throwing for 132 yards in the first quarter. If the Cowboys defense can’t find a way to swing the tide against Rodgers, this will be the first of many Aaron Rodgers touchdown videos today.

Sports have always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Born in Queens, New York, I took to the Mets and the Jets at a young age, and actually have a video of myself reciting the 1986 Mets 25-man roster at age 3. Covering New York Sports is a dream come true. After attending the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I was able to fully realise my potential of turning my liking for sports into a career that I love.
