Packers score first TD of season with victory over Rams, 19-7
ST. LOUIS (WITI) — Aaron Rodgers was ten for-12 passing and rookie runningback Eddie Lacy rushed for 40 yards as the Green Bay Packers beat the St. Louis Rams in game two of the preseason, 19-7.
Rodgers has yet to throw a touchdown pass this preseason. Yet he threw for 134 yards or 11.2 yards per completion.
Lacy had a five-yard rushing average in his eight runs with the pigskin.
Packers kicker Mason Crosby, who struggled last season, did all of Green Bay’s scoring in the first three quarters of the game. Then in the fourth quarter, Jake Stoneburner caught a nine-yard pass from Green Bay’s B.J. Coleman for that elusive first touchdown.
The Rams avoided a shutout when they scored late in the fourth quarter. Again, the final in the game as 19-7.
