Jets 24, Packers 31: 5 Things We Learned

The Jets and the Packers played out an extremely entertaining game at Lambeau Field, and in the end Aaron Rodgers was able to complete an impressive comeback after falling behind 21-3.

Halftime Quick Hitters: Packers Rally After Nightmare Start Against Jets

Here are five takeaways from Green Bay's 31-24 win:

5. These teams don't like each other

Things got chippy in the end zone after the Packers scored to go up 24-21, and Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson was ejected for throwing punches. You can't blame him for being frustrated after giving up 21 unanswered points, but you just can't lose your cool like that.

4. The Packers have some serious fight in them

Down by 18 early in the second quarter, plenty of teams would have been down and demoralized. The Packers never lost their cool, and Aaron Rodgers stayed poised to bring Green Bay all the way back.

3. The Jets are still their own worst enemy

Between Wilkerson's meltdown and the defensive collapse, the Jets still haven't caught up mentally to where they are physically. That's on coach Rex Ryan, and this result won't do anything to ease the pressure on him.

2. Green Bay's ground game is stuck in neutral

While some of it comes down to the still-unimpressive offensive line, a good chunk of the blame has to fall on Eddie Lacy. After missing most of last week's game against Seattle with a concussion, Lacy never made an impact today, ending up with just 43 yards on 14 carries.

1. Aaron Rodgers exposed New York's secondary in a major way

After a slow start, Rodgers caught fire in the second half. His 346 passing yards and three touchdowns were instrumental in turning this around and his chemistry with Jordy Nelson - who ended up with nine catches for 209 yards and a touchdown - continues to impress. The New York secondary that looked so good against Oakland looked average at best in the second half, and they'll need to improve against Chicago next week.
