Aaron Rodgers led Green Bay on a 14-play, 87-yard touchdown scoring drive and the Packers went on to beat the San Francisco 49ers 21-10 in exhibition play at Levi Stadium in San Francisco on Friday night.
Rodgers found Randall Cobb for six yards, giving the Packers a touchdown on their second offensive possession. That score would mean the end of the night for Rodgers who completed six of nine passes for 60 yards and a touchdown.
The first drive, which had three penalties in it, ended with a short Peter Mortell punt.
It is likely the only playing time Rodgers will see during the preseason. Most of the starters are expected to take Thursday night off when the Packers close out the preseason at Kansas City.
Eddie Lacy rushed for 45 yards on seven carries as the Packers ground attack appears to be ready for the regular season opener on Sept. 11 against Jacksonville.
Rookie quarterback Joe Callahan took over for Rodgers and put together his best game of the preseason. He completed 16 of 24 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown.
Brett Hundley didn’t suit up, sidelined by an ankle injury. Callahan may have played well enough to find his way on the Packers 53 man roster. Coach Mike McCarthy dodged that question in his post game press conference.
But we’ll all find out soon enough. The Packers will have to trim their roster to 75 players by Tuesday, and then get to 53 by the end of the week.
The players won’t practice again until Monday, one of two remaining open to the public practices. They’ll close out the preseason on Thursday night at Kansas City.
