Cardinals extend lead to 14-0 in second quarter

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 9, 2013 – 8:13 pm

GREEN BAY–The new south end zone stands witnessed their first-ever touchdown, but it wasn’t the Packers that scored it. Drew Stanton’s 1-yard touchdown pass to Jaron Brown on third-and-goal staked the Cardinals to a 14-0 lead with 11:38 to play in the first half of Friday night’s preseason opener at Lambeau Field. Rookie cornerback Micah Hyde was in coverage.

Arizona began the drive following a sack by John Abraham that forced Packers backup quarterback Graham Harrell to fumble. A 36-yard pass from Stanton to wide receiver Charles Hawkins was the big play in the Cardinals’ second touchdown drive of the game.

Cardinals starting quarterback Carson Palmer completed a 38-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Andre Roberts late in the first quarter. Roberts beat Packers cornerback Davon House, who was also in coverage against Hawkins on his reception.

The Packers had an opportunity to open the scoring in the south end zone following a 50-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to James Jones on the Packers’ first possession of the game. The drive, howeiver, stalled when James Starks was stopped shy of the goal line on fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line.

Harrell replaced Rodgers after that drive, but Harrell threw an interception that led to the Cardinals’ first touchdown.

    Ouch! I realize we have many injuries, but this is looking like an ugly 2013 season.

    What are you talking about? Injuries don’t seem to be a huge thing right now, and it is the very first preseason game. You are a moron if you’re putting any sort of stock into what is happening.
