Aaron Rodgers produced a masterclass as the Green Bay Packers eased to a 38-28 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Lambeau Field.

The Packers quarterback threw for 333 yards and five touchdowns, with no interceptions, as Green Bay moved on to 3-0.

The Super Bowl XLV MVP exhibited unerring accuracy as he threw short - and often - in a fast-paced Packers offence to run the Chiefs ragged, completing 24 of his 35 passes.

Touchdowns from Ty Montgomery, Randall Cobb and James Jones, along with a 44-yard field goal from Mason Crosby, helped the Packers to a commanding 24-7 half-time lead, with Jamaal Charles ensuring the Chiefs at least made it on the board.

Cobb added two more touchdowns, with Jeremy Maclin scoring for Kansas City in between, before Charles rushed for two more touchdowns himself in the fourth quarter but it was too late for the visitors.
