Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers already had his strategy mapped out for how to attack Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb before he lobbed a deep touchdown pass over his head to wide receiver Jordy Nelson on Sunday. Rodgers sold a play-action fake to running back Eddie Lacy to get the Ravens to shift toward his left. Then, he adeptly rolled out to his right and delivered a 64-yard touchdown to a wide-open Nelson streaking past Webb down the middle. "I had just scrambled on the previous play, and Jordy had just ran a deep route," Rodgers said.

Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers' arm strength, accuracy and improvisational skills have vaulted him to a different level as far as the Ravens' defense is concerned. Heading into Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens regard Rodgers and Green Bay's stacked group of offensive weapons as just as dangerous if not more so than a Denver Broncos offense headlined by quarterback Peyton Manning. That's quite a statement about Rodgers, considering how Manning dismantled the Ravens' defense with seven touchdown passes during a 49-27 win to open the season Sept.

Packers 22, Lions 9 Strategy:  The Packers have built their offense around former league MVP Aaron Rodgers. They love putting him in the shotgun, using three-wide sets and keeping defenses on their heels with the no-huddle. They attack the whole field with Rodgers, who can throw a bubble screen on one play and a bomb down the sideline the next. They are an aggressive, blitzing defense, with coordinator Dom Capers mixing man coverage with his zone-blitz looks. The Packers have a 3-4 base defense, but they often used two down linemen against the Lions.

- A season that began with such promise for the Washington Redskins has unraveled in rapid fashion. The team's record dropped to 0-2 here Sunday, and they looked stunningly overmatched in the process, surrendering the game's first 31 points as the Green Bay Packers coasted to a 38-20 victory at Lambeau Field. "We knew in order to win here in this venue, we had to play one of our better games," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "And obviously we didn't do that today. I thought we almost had to play error-free football, play one of our better games, and we probably did just the opposite in the first half.

"I felt so comfortable here that I never moved," explained Mildred Zeller, whose parents were original owners of a house in Rodgers Forge. Her parents moved to Dunkirk Road (second group of homes built by Keelty) in 1937 or 1938 and she was born a few years later. As you can imagine, the houses sold for a great deal less than they do today. Houses were $5,000 and only required a $250 down payment. Mildred said it only cost $500 to finish off the third floor with heat, hardwood floors and a cedar closet.

Residents packed into the Rodgers Forge Elementary School cafeteria Tuesday to learn more about last week's fatal shooting, but many expressed frustration over a lack of information released by police. "This was a complete waste of time," resident said Tom Mitchell after the meeting. "We expected to get some information. " Police said they tried to answer questions about the fatal shooting that occurred in the area of Murdock Road and Blenheim Road early last Wednesday. But, citing their ongoing investigation, they provided little information that hadn't already been made public.
