I watched it and I still don't know what I saw. The Green Bay Packers were embarrassed in the season opener, 38-3 by the Saints in Jacksonville. 

The Packers were thoroughly dominated in every aspect.

If you had told me that one of the starting quarterbacks would throw five touchdown passes and the other none with two interceptions, I wouldn't have believed that Jameis Winston would have the good numbers and Aaron Rodgers would struggle.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur used words like "embarrassed" and "humbling." 

Aaron Rodgers said simply: "We played bad. I played bad."

Now fans will debate whether the Packers should have played their starters at least a little in the preseason.

All I know is this. It's a 17-game season. I'm certainly not going to write off the whole season. But it was an awful performance. Couldn't have been much worse.

Suddenly, next Monday night's game at Lambeau Field is loaded with importance.

The Packers can't afford to start 0-2. The Lions are not a good team. If you lose that game, the criticism will get louder.

This is a season with so many subplots. To keep it on track, the Packers can't afford many missteps like Sunday.
