Packers start fast, hold off Vikings 21-16

Aaron Jones ran for 116 yards on 23 carries.

Aaron Rodgers threw two early touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers held on for a 21-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

On a day when the Packers honored late Hall of Famer Bart Starr at halftime, Rodgers put on quite a show -- particularly early. Rodgers completed nine of his first 10 passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns and had a perfect 158.3 rating through the first quarter. He finished 22 of 34 for 209 yards.

Packers running back Aaron Jones racked up 116 yards and a TD on 23 carries.

Kevin King intercepted Cousins late in the end zone to preserve the win.

The Packers improved to 2-0 under new coach Matt LaFleur after opening the NFL's 100th season with a victory at rival Chicago. They also beat the Vikings (1-1) for the fifth time in the past seven games at Lambeau Field.
