Aaron Rodgers has career day as Packers rout Broncos

Let's get realistic here.

The Chances of the Denver Broncos beating the Green Bay Packers on Sunday were probably about as good as predicting the Detroit Lions would be 4-0 to start the season.

Sure, highly unlikely, although the Lions are indeed 4-0 after surviving in Dallas.

However, all optimism aside, I am sure most thought the Broncos would put on a better showing than they did in Sunday's 49-23 loss to the Packers.

Don't look too much into the score, the game wasn't that close.

In an effort in which the "Denver Post" coined "Laugher" the Broncos might just be the laughing-stock of the NFL. Knowshon Moreno even fell off a stationary bike during the game.

Who knows what was in the water, I wonder if anyone checked for empties after that

All joking aside, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers accounted for 6 touchdowns and had a career day in passing for 408 yards.

Rodgers had a field day in what looked more like a Madden video game was being played .

The Broncos, meanwhile were plagued by turnovers and a defensive letdown.

Denver had 4 turnovers in the game, which led to 21 Green Bay points.

Denver quarterback Kyle Orton threw for 273 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions and receiver Eric Decker caught a pair of touchdowns for the Broncos.

"I thought our offense was very impressive, other than the turnovers," Coach John Fox said. "It wasn't all the quarterback (Kyle Orton). It was all of us."

In my opinion, had the Broncos made a stop before halftime the momentum would of been theirs and I think the game would of played out differently in the second half.

The Packers scored a touchdown in the closing seconds of the first half and romped down the field to begin the third quarter to score another touchdown to put the game away.

The Broncos rallied early after being down 21-3 in a first half, that included a Green Bay onside recover which led to a touchdown. They cut the deficit to 21-17 with 3:21 left in the first half and that was as close as it would get for the Broncos.

The Broncos face another tough test next Sunday when the San Diego Chargers come to Mile High.

The Chargers, are 3-1 off their victory over the winless Miami Dolphins.

It could prove to be another long day and laughable affair next weekend for Broncos fans as well.
