Green Bay Wisconsin
September 9, 2011 by staff
Green Bay Wisconsin, Green Bay Packers made a goal-line stand on the final play last night, and escaped with a win by 42 to 34 years on the New Orleans Saints in an exciting game of the season at Lambeau Field. The Saints’ offense has an extra game in the dying seconds when AJ Hawk made a pass interference penalty.
However, Mark Ingram failed to score from one yard line, and put him by a swarm of Green Bay defenders to end the game. Drew Brees threw for 419 yards and three touchdowns for the Saints, but his team only scored 10 points in five trips to the red zone. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers found nine different receivers, completed 27 of 35 passes for 312 yards.
All three of his touchdown passes came in the first quarter to Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and rookie Randall Cobb. Cobb later tied the record of four years, the NFL returning a kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown. It was also the first of the Packers kickoff return for a touchdown since Allen Rossum in 2000. New Orleans made a game of it after losing a fumble on its first play from scrimmage and down 14 principles at all. The Saints had 477 total yards to the package 399.
James Starks and John Kuhn both had to rush TD Green Bay. Donald Driver tied the record for James Packer to Lofton’s career receiving yards with 96-one hundred-56. Darren Sproles returned a punt 72 yards for a touchdown in New Orleans. Starks had 12 carries for 57 yards, and Ryan Grant had nine carries for 40 yards. Jennings and Nelson both had eight catches for Green Bay. Packers corner Charles Woodson has a 15-yard penalty, but was not ejected after hitting a Saints player in the third quarter. Tramon Williams left corner after receiving a blow on his right shoulder in the fourth quarter.
The Packers opened the league schedule for the regular season as Super Bowl champions – and was the eighth consecutive year that Lombardi Trophy winners prevailed. Next game Green Bay, is a week from Sunday at Carolina.
