Despite opening both on the road and as slight 2.5-point underdogs against their division rival Minnesota Vikings, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, it's safe to say the Green Bay Packers really took care of business in Week 1.

Aaron Rodgers looked as great as ever, tossing four touchdown passes and 364 yards without any interceptions and roughly a 73 percent completion rate, leading the Packers' offense to a hefty 43-point total and 9-point win over the Vikes in Minnesota.

And it appears the fans in Green Bay, or Minneapolis for that matter, may have been the only ones who took serious notice of this greatness in Week 1, as the Packers are still being disrespected in the latest odds to win the Super Bowl.

As of this Tuesday morning, the Packers are staring at a three-way tie for just the 12th-best odds of winning the Super Bowl this season, locked at +2600 odds with the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles – both of whom lost in Week 1.

The Packers are, however, still sitting ahead of the Vikings (+3300) and the remainder of the NFC North in this odds race, but you can't help but feel disrespected by these odds if you're a Packers fans heading into Week 2.
