Share


All three Green Bay Packers quarterbacks threw for a touchdown in a 28-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals at Lambeau Field on Friday. In fact, the trio combined to complete 21 of their 27 passes for 297 yards and helped the Packers improve to 1-1 on the preseason.

Follow the jump to find some notes and links regarding the winners and losers on the Packers roster.
– Bill Huber of Fox Sports Wisconsin writes, “The offense’s potential was evident during Friday night’s 28-20 preseason victory over the Arizona Cardinals,” in his article entitled Healthy Packers try to find new role.

– The return of Jermichael Finley was pretty sweet to say the least. The tight end caught four balls for 33 yards, including a catch on three straight plays at one point in the second quarter. Check out some quotes from the big guy in the AP’s game recap. Wideout Greg Jennings also caught a touchdown for his second of this preseason.

ESPN radio’s Jason Wilde also catches up with the tight end in “Packers 28, Cardinals 20: Finally, Finley.”

– ESPN Blogger and NFC North guru Kevin Seifert writes “Packers strong in no-huddle.” “Two injuries to keep an eye on: Receiver Randall Cobb (bruised knee) and defensive end C.J. Wilson (possible concussion),” notes Seifert.

– Fresno State alum and WR Chastin West stole the night with an awesome 97 yard trip to paydirt in the fourth quarter. Check out the highlight on Packers.com.

– Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette dissects the night of rookie RB Alex Green in “Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green shows flash as receiver.”

– Next Friday, the Packers travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in their third preseason game. Coverage is set to begin at 7:00 PM CT. The Colts’ offense has been terrible without Peyton Manning while scoring a pitiful 13 points in two preseason losses.

“Come Friday night in Indianapolis, look for coach Mike McCarthy to give Grant a larger number of carries than the eight he has had in the Green Bay Packers’ first two exhibition games,” says Bob McGinn of the Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
