After a sluggish start for the offense, Brett Hundley hit wide receiver Jeff Janis for a 20-yard touchdown and the Green Bay Packers went on to knock off the Philadelphia Eagles 24-9 at Lambeau Field on Thursday.
The score was part of 17 unanswered points in the second quarter. Trevor Davis also took one of his two punt returns back 68 yards for a touchdown, which likely put him in the driver’s seat for the punt return job this season.
A sprained ankle wiped out Hundley’s preseason a year ago, so his start against the Eagles was his first significant playing time since his rookie season two years ago.
Hundley finished 8 of 15 for 90 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Mason Crosby also booted a 39-yard field goal to send the Packers into the locker room at halftime with a 17-6 lead.
Third-string quarterback Joe Callahan entered in the third quarter and completed 10 of 16 passes for 103 yards. Rookie Taysom Hill came on late and threw a seven-yard touchdown pass to Michael Clark with nine seconds left to play. [Read more…]
