Cardinals blank Packers in preseason opener

Posted by Vic Ketchman, editor on August 9, 2013 – 9:50 pm

GREEN BAY–The Packers began the preseason with a 17-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at Lambeau Field on Friday night.

One of the few highlights for the Packers was a 50-yard pass completion from Aaron Rodgers to James Jones on the Packers’ first possession of the game. The play carried to the Cardinals 6-yard line, but the Packers failed to score when, on fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line, James Starks was stopped shy of the goal line.

Little did Packers fans know, but that would be the turning point in the game.

The Cardinals would intercept a Graham Harrell pass and Carson Palmer would follow with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Andre Roberts. Arizona increased its lead to 14-0 in the second quarter, when John Abraham sacked Harrell and forced a fumble that began a drive that ended with a short touchdown pass to Jaron Brown.

Rodgers was three of five for 62 yards in one series of playing time. Harrell was 12 of 19 for 76 yards, an interception and two sacks. He was replaced by Vince Young, who was followed by B.J. Coleman.

Rookie undrafted wide receiver Tyrone Walker led the Packers with five receptions for 41 yards. Starks was the Packers’ leading rusher with 38 yards on 12 carries.

Palmer and his replacement, Drew Stanton, each topped the 100 mark in passer rating.
