The game was obviously a pass happy game and the Rodgers-led Packers came out on top of this one. I expect that Brees and Rodgers will be the 2 of the best QBs statistics-wise. If they continue their pace they might end up passing over 5000 yards in a season. For fantasy owners, the WRs of both teams will really have a good season as usual. 

With one game down, I expect so many great games this weekend.
