Jordy Nelson and the Green Bay Packers offense had endured enough sub-par play. Sunday, they returned to form.

Nelson caught two of Aaron Rodgers' four first-half touchdown passes in Green Bay's 34-27 win over Detroit last Sunday.

"It was great," said Nelson on 620 WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Afternoon News."

"Obviously, there was a lot of talk about it after the first two weeks. Inside the locker room, we weren't worried. We knew we could execute. That's just what we needed to do. We have a lot of faith in the guys who have been around for quite a few years and know what it takes to get it done. We were able to go out and get into a rhythm early in the game, put up a lot of points. The defense gave us a good turnover, and everything snowballed from there."

One thing he admitted, though - he forgot to Lambeau Leap after the scores.

"I didn't even think about it. Maybe being gone a year, I forgot that it's part of the celebration," he said, realizing his previously injured knees may lead him to forgo the traditional celebration.

"I don't know. I don't know if I'm going to do one at all. With the knee (injuries) I've had, I'm getting older, and it takes a lot of work and energy out of you to do it. We'll see."
