They played "Taper Jean Girl" by Kings of Leon, one of my favorite songs, on Fox before the start of the game. Must be a good omen.
14:37 - Packers force the Eagles 3 & Out on the first drive of the season. A very good start with some help from penalties.
14:15 - Brandon Jackson gains two yards on his first NFL carry.
13:27 - Packers go 3 & Out on first series after incompletion on pass to Ruvell Martin.
13:10 - TOUCHDOWN! Muffed punt by Greg Lewis on first career punt return recovered by Tracy White in the end zone. Mason Crosby converts first career extra point. (7-0)
13:10 - Crosby has a huge leg as evidenced by his touchback on the kickoff.
10:34 - Nick Barnett intercepts Donovan McNabb on a very athletic play at the 34 yard line.
10:30 - Brandon Jackson drops his first career reception.
10:30 - Favre completes first pass of season to Donald Driver for first completion of season.
9:40 - Mason Crosby makes 53-yard field goal, first of career. (10-0)
Packers definitely made the right decision in taking Crosby over Dave Rayner.
7:31 - Packers force another 3 & Out.
7:13 - Al Harris shaken up after hit by Atari Bigby and taken into locker room.
7:05 - James Jones makes first career reception.
4:46 - Favre throws first interception of the season (#274 of career) after Sheldon Brown steps in front of Bubba Franks.
0:10 - McNabb completes 36-yard pass to Kevin Curtis to the Green Bay 6-yard line on Tramon Williams.
The loss of Harris is really hurting the Packers pass D in the nickel and dime defenses.
End of First Quarter, Green Bay leads Philadelphia 10-0.
Just saw a commercial with Jonathon Ogden of the Ravens dancing. A lot. Didn't want to see that.
Fox is going to have another Yankees-Red Sox game on this Saturday. Ugh.
14:10 - Nick Barnett forces Westbrook out of bounds at the 6-yard line on third and goal.
13:34 - David Akers kicks 23-yard field goal, but it is negated by holding penalty.
13:30 - Akers makes 33-yard field goal. (10-3)
Oh God, Ryan Seacrest is going to host the Emmys.
11:22 - DeShawn Wynn takes first career carry for 8 yards on a third down.
Those new Heineken commercials are really, really weird and freak me out.
Commercial for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I actually saw it being filmed in Philly in June. Neat, huh?
10:23 - Al Harris is back on sideline with heavily taped elbow.
10:09 - Al Harris returns to field.
7:10 - Cullen Jenkins injured.
Another hit to the Packers defense. With Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila's decline, Jenkins' emergence has been a pleasant surprise, but the potential loss of Jenkins would be extremely detrimental.
6:54 - Jenkins' injury reported as a calf cramp.
6:00 - McNabb throws 9-yard TD pass to Jason Avant. Akers' extra point good. (10-10)
5:46 - Packers only have one first down so far.
5:28 - Packers pick up second first down on 10-yard pass to Driver.
4:57 - This just in: Tony Siragusa is the most annoying sideline reporter on TV.
4:05 - Jevon Kearse mauls Brett Favre, forcing a sack and fourth down, before limping off to the sideline.
2:48 - McNabb is sacked by KGB.
Pittsburgh-Cleveland is on CBS. Derek Anderson is already in the game in the second quarter.
:58 - Favre completes consecutive passes to Driver and Jackson, totaling 28 yards.
:38 - Ruvell Martin catches pass for first down at Eagles 38.
:11 - Favre sacked by Monte Reagor back to Eagles 47. Packers use final timeout.
:00 - First half ends with 15 yard pass to Jackson
End of First Half: Packers 10, Eagles 10

Green Bay is struggling offensively. Jackson and Wynn need to step up for the Packers to win this game. That's about all their is to say about this.
