After losing their 2014 season debut 36-16 to the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers were looking to take on their frustrations on the visiting New York Jets at Lambeau Field today (Sun., September 14, 2014) in Week 2 action.

Unfortunately for the Pack, however, the Jets weren’t willing to agree to that plan, jumping out to a surprising lead thanks to the arm and legs of quarterback Geno Smith.

The Jets drew first blood on a one yard touchdown run from Smith (courtesy of Vine):

After the tough Jets defensive front sacked Aaron Rodgers to force Green Bay to punt, Smith took advantage to throw this 29-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Eric Decker (Vine):

The Jets were up 14-3 after the Packers kicked a field goal late in the first quarter, and they extended that lead to 21-3 with a touchdown by running back Chris Ivory (Vine):

But the Packers stormed back on the strength of two second half touchdown passes from Rodgers to Randall Cobb. Emotions were running high, and teams started brawling as Green Bay took the lead (Vine):

The Jets later kicked a field goal to tie the game at 24-24, but the Packers soon stormed back with an 80-yard touchdown from Rodgers to Jordy Nelson to go up 31-24 late in the third quarter (Vine):

The Jets scored on a huge fourth quarter play from Smith to receiver Jeremy Kerley, but the referees stated that the Jets had called their third timeout before the play.

New York missed on a fourth down and Green Bay ran out the rest of the clock to lock up a come-from-behind win with a final score of 31-24 heading into their Week 3 NFC North showdown with the Detroit Lions.
