The Green Bay Packers outlasted the New Orleans Saints 42-34 in a wild Week 1 showdown to open the season 1-0. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees were magnificent in the NFL season opener, but the Packers defense came up with just enough big plays to give Green Bay the win.

The incredibly entertaining game featured two of the NFC favorites as well two of the best offenses led by two of the best quarterbacks in the game. After a fair share of fireworks and a bounty of touchdowns, the game came down to the final play.

The Packers defense came up big to stop the Saints on the 1-yard line on an untimed down following a pass interference in the end zone. Mark Ingram was stuffed as he failed to move the ball the three feet the Saints needed. 

Here are some takeaways from a wild season opener.
