Packers Lose Pre Season Opener Vs Titans
A touchdown with five minutes left gives the Tennessee Titans a wet 20-16 preseason victory over Green Bay. Rain fell through most of the game, making the ball slippery and the footing loose. Packers coach Mike McCarthy held quarterback Aaron Rodgers, running back Eddie Lacy and eight other players out of the contest. McCarthy said he just wanted to see his three other backup quarterbacks and Rodgers would have played only one series anyway. There were eight fumbles in the game. Matt Flynn started and hit five-of-10 passes for 49 yards. Green Baywas leading 7-6 on James Starks’ T-D when Flynn went to the sideline. Rajion Neal scored the other Packer touchdown on a 12-yard run. Scott Tolzein hit eight-of-12 passes for 124 yards. The next preseason games comes next Saturday at St. Louis for the Packers.
