The Green Bay Packers took an early lead over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday when quarterback Aaron Rodgers and tight end Richard Rodgers connected on a pretty impressive scoring strike for just a one-yard toss.

On the play, Aaron rolled out as far as he could to his right, giving Richard and his other pass-catchers plenty of time to get open. After stepping out of Luke Kuechly's missed tackle, Aaron delivered his dart to Richard, who worked the sideline like a pro.
