JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Aaron Rodgers was far from impressed with his season opener.He was concerned that Green Bays offense wasnt effective early and had some struggles in the red zone. Nonetheless, the Packers harshest critic was a big reason they won a close game on the road in sweltering heat.Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading Green Bay to a 27-23 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the teams season opener Sunday.Rodgers looked every bit like a two-time league MVP. He extended plays with his feet, escaped sacks and was accurate all over the field.I dont think we played very well offensively, Rodgers said. But we won. Its tough to win in this league. Its tough to win on the road.Rodgers completed 20 of 34 passes for 199 yards, with TD passes to Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. He was sacked once for no yards and didnt turn it over.He helped the Packers win their second opener in the last five years. This one came on a hot and humid day that left some players cramping and others completely exhausted.LOOK WHOS BACKNelson played his first game since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the 2015 preseason. The injury significantly impacted Rodgers, who lost his best deep threat, and the offense, which fell to 23rd in the league and tied for 25th in passing.Nelson didnt show big-play ability in the opener. He finished with six receptions for 32 yards, including a 6-yard TD in the second quarter.FINAL SHOTThe Jaguars mounted a late drive that came up short on a fourth-and-1 play at the Packers 14. The Jaguars had converted their previous three fourth-down plays, but Allen Hurns failed to move the sticks on a bubble screen.We kind of knew that was what they were going to do, said Blake Bortles, who completed 24 of 39 passes for 320 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. They are a big `bring the house team, so we just have to execute. I should have done something differently. It was fourth-and-1 or whatever, so we just have to get it. If you dont, you lose.VINTAGE RODGERSWith 13 seconds left in the first half, Adams hauled in a 29-yarder that was vintage Rodgers, who managed to get rid of the ball with a defender tugging at his jersey and still got enough on it to reach the end zone. Adams got up and pointed to the back of his jersey several times.Youve got to make the tough ones, Adams said. Thats the caliber of receivers we have here and thats the standard we hold ourselves to. ... It was a tight window to get the ball in there, but the window was cracked. It was not a wide-open window.IVORY HOSPITALIZEDJaguars running back Chris Ivory was hospitalized Sunday with a general medical issue and was inactive for the opener. Ivory was taken by ambulance from the team hotel to a local hospital early Sunday. He was limited in three practices this week because of a calf injury, but the team said that was not related to his hospital stay.Chris Ivory is doing well and is expected to be released from the hospital in the next day or two, the Jaguars said. More info will be provided at that time.NO CALLS?Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson finished with six catches for 72 yards, but there were nine more passes thrown his way. At least two of those, maybe more, could have been flagged for pass interference. The 2015 Pro Bowler took the high road.Its not about the calls, Robinson said. Blake gave me a ton of opportunities to make a play. Ive got to make more plays. Seeing that thats how the game is being called, Ive got to adjust my physicality to the game.Fellow receiver Marqise Lee placed the blame elsewhere.I dont know what the refs were looking at, Lee said.

The guys are exhausted, he said. We had guys show up for our (12:45 p.m.) shoot around after pulling all-nighters.After a tough finals week its good to have a game like this where we can just work on getting better, senior Grant Verhoeven said. There was a lot out there that wasnt pretty at our end of the court.Travis shot 9 for 10 from the field, playing just 22 minutes.

Previously, they fell 96-80 to San Jose State and 75-50 to Santa Clara.STAT OF THE NIGHTStanford won easily despite shooting 1 for 7 from the perimeter. The Cardinal scored 42 points in the paint, so perimeter shooting wasnt a priority. But Stanford is converting just 28.7 percent from beyond the arc this year. The 3-point shot has to be part of our offense, Haase said. We have to be more efficient than we have been.UP NEXTStanford: The Cardinal travels to face SMU (8-3) on Monday.
