GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers need to get their timing back in the passing game.At their best, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and the other receivers break at just the right points in precisely run routes to catch perfectly thrown balls from quarterback Aaron Rodgers.But for whatever reasons so far this season, the Packers once-prolific passing attack isnt in sync . Theyd like to correct that on Sunday in the home opener against the Detroit Lions.The West Coast offense is all about timing, and if your timing is even just a little bit off, youre going to be miles off at times with your connection points, Rodgers said.Fortunately for the Packers, Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the league in extending plays outside the pocket. He has rushed for two touchdowns this year after being forced to scramble.Rodgers would rather get those points with completions.But as we get more in sync offensively, the running naturally probably comes down because the routes are being run on time and you can deliver the ball on time, Rodgers said.Opponents can doubt Rodgers at their own risk. He has been known to play with a very sizable chip on his valuable right shoulder.He can make every throw, he can run, hes an outstanding leader, hes won tons of games, extremely capable individual, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said when asked if Rodgers was struggling.I dont know what struggling means in that regard, not with a guy like that, Caldwell said.The Packers (1-1) lost 17-14 last week at Minnesota, a game in which Rodgers uncharacteristically accounted for two turnovers.Detroit (1-1) is looking to rebound from a 16-15 loss to Tennessee in the Lions home opener on Marcus Mariotas 9-yard touchdown pass late to Andre Johnson.Other notes and things to watch Sunday:ON THE RUN: Ameer Abdullahs foot injury likely means Theo Riddick will get a chance to prove he can be an every-down running back. Abdullah was placed on injured reserve this week. Riddick, who is already a proven threat in the passing game, had a career-high 11 carries for 37 yards against the Titans.Riddick might be the lead guy, but the fact of the matter is itll be some other guys carrying the ball as well, Caldwell said. It just depends on ... exactly what type of attack we decide to use.STOP THE RUN: The Packers have the leagues best run defense through two games, allowing 1.63 yards per carry. Defensive lineman Mike Daniels is leading a stout effort in spite of depth questions in the front seven.Green Bay is without backup lineman Mike Pennel for the first four games after being suspended by the NFL for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. Datone Jones was added to the injury report this week with a knee injury. Linebacker Clay Matthews has ankle and hamstring issues. Letroy Guion could also miss some time with a knee injury.MORE RUNS: Getting more production out of the running game could help the Packers, too. Through two games, running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks have combined to rush for 121 yards on 37 carries with no scores.The analysis of our offense after two games, the running backs have not been given enough opportunities, so thats something that I need to focus on, coach Mike McCarthy said.FEWER DROPS: The Lions need receivers to hang on to the ball more. Dropped passes have been a problem.Just continue to work, try to get those guys as many catches as we can, before, after practice, quarterback Matthew Stafford said. Im going to continue to try to do a better job of putting the ball in a better position for them to catch it, but Ive got confidence in all those guys to go out there and make plays.HANDLING THE NORTH: The Packers lost all their divisional home games last season. Theyd need to re-establish themselves at home against NFC North foes, while Detroit would like to build on its breakthrough last year at Lambeau Field. The 18-16 win on Nov. 15 snapped the Lions 23-game regular-season road losing streak against Green Bay.Thats so far back on the radar its unbelievable, Caldwell said. Theres been a lot going on between that time.Back then, the Packers were having similar issues on offense. This time, Green Bay is working top receiver Jordy Nelson back into the system after he hurt was last preseason.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL O. J. Simpson Jersey . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. Jim Kelly Jersey . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. http://www.shoptheofficialbills.com/Customized/ .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. Bruce Smith Jersey . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Thurman Thomas Jersey .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. SAN DIEGO -- Adam Rosales is embracing his role as a utilityman for the San Diego Padres, because it brings valuable playing time.Rosales hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the sixth inning and finished with four RBI, and rookie Ryan Schimpf scored three times to lead San Diego to a 5-2 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.Its great to get the consistent playing time, Rosales said. Thats what you want to do in the major leagues. You want to play every day. Im happy with the role Im playing as a utility player, but its really nice to get those consistent at-bats. You can make quicker adjustments when you play every day.The start of the game was delayed 70 minutes by rain. It was only the seventh delay in Petco Parks 13-season history, the sixth because of rain. The other one was due to a swarm of bees during a game in 2009.Arizona dropped into sole possession of last place in the NL West.Paul Goldschmidt hit a tying, two-run homer for the Diamondbacks with two outs in the sixth off starter Paul Clemens.Schimpf reached base for the third time when he drew a leadoff walk from reliever Zack Godley (4-4) in the bottom of the inning. Rosales homered to left field with one out, his 11th, to give the Padres a 4-2 lead.Thats a big momentum shift and you want to come back right away, Rosales said. You dont want to dwell on it. You want to come right back and answer back, and thats what we did.Manager Andy Green said Rosales has been outstanding. Hes gotten limited opportunity this year and hes taken full advantage of all his opportunities. Hes fun to watch play baseball.Schimpf was hit by a pitch from Archie Bradley leading off the second and scored on Alex Dickersons double. Schimpf walked leading off the fourth and scored on Rosales sacriifice fly.ddddddddddddRosales also hit a sac fly in the eighth to bring in Wil Myers, who doubled and stole third. It was Myers 88th hit at home, a single-season record for Petco Park.Keith Hessler (1-0) got the last out of the sixth for the win. Brandon Maurer pitched the ninth for his second straight save and 12th in 14 chances.Clemens took a 2-0 lead into the sixth before being hit on his pitching hand by Jean Seguras comebacker and getting undone by two unearned runs. He recovered from the comebacker and threw out Segura, but with two outs, shortstop Luis Sardinas booted a routine grounder by Chris Owings. Goldschmidt then homered to left-center to tie it.Clemens allowed two runs, none earned, and three hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked one.Bradley gave up two runs and two hits in five innings, struck out seven and walked three.Kind of weird, only two hits, gave up two runs -- just a funny game sometimes, Bradley said. You never know how things are going to affect you, but the hit-by-a-pitch and the walk came back to really hurt me tonight. I was honesty really pleased with staying composed the way I did in those two innings, coming back and striking guys out to get through the inning. But overall pretty pleased with it.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke (12-7, 4.42 ERA) is scheduled to start the finale of the three-game series. Hes 1-0 with a 3.54 ERA in three starts against San Diego this year and 7-1 with a 1.96 ERA in 15 career starts against the Padres.Padres: RHP Luis Perdomo (8-9, 5.68), a 23-year-old rookie, is coming off his club-leading eighth victory, 3-1 at San Francisco on Sept. 14.
