Some of those great things were shows put on by different breakout players. For instance, Randall Cobb tied an NFL record in his debut, and Morgan Burnett brought down a game-high 14 players.
However, not all Packers tapped into their full potential in Week 1.
Here are some guesses on who'll break out in Week 2 versus Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.
With a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and two catches (one going for a TD) to his name, many think Randall Cobb is a Rookie of the Year contender.
So, didn't he already break out in Week 1?
Perhaps, but as some of you know, Cobb didn't follow team protocol on the kickoff, or run the right route on his TD catch.
That said, it would be nice to see the same explosiveness out of Cobb (just with the right routes and following team procedure.
It's frustrating to see Finley go down with injuries, because we know he's so good, but he hasn't been able to put up the production for a full season.
Let's hope that No. 88 can finally put together a season free of injuries and deliver that "breakout" season.
Finley hopes to get that season on track as he faces the Jon Beason-less Panthers.
House was inactive last week, so this is a big stretch.
However, House could be active and see some playing time if the Packers get off to an early lead versus the Panthers, as Tramon Williams should only see as much playing time as needed.
In that case, House would move up the depth chart and still only be the fourth cornerback.
This is a real long-shot, but there is a small chance this could happen.
After not seeing the field much at all against the Saints, Jones hopes he can pick up the pace in Week 2.
The Panthers secondary isn't a great unit and McCarthy & Co. might opt to spread the field and let Rodgers pick the Carolina secondary apart.
If that happens, Jones, obviously, will be more productive.
If he continues the unproductive trend however, we might see Jones in another uniform before season's end.
As you may have noticed, I'm talking about breakout performances of the season—not career. Had I been talking about careers, there would be zero reason for Matthews on the list.
The Panthers offensive line is underrated—their starting offensive line. The depth, on the other hand, is very questionable.
With starting RT Jeff Otah possibly out with a concussion, Matthews could have a big game. Also, starting TE Greg Olsen isn't exactly known for his blocking.
Though Carolina might go run-heavy against a stellar Packers pass defense, a three-sack game isn't out of question for Matthews, as he consistently pressured Brees in Green Bay's first matchup of the season.
