Packers defense pitching shutout in St. Louis

Packers K Mason CrosbyST. LOUIS–Aaron Rodgers completed 10 of 12 passes for 134 yards in a little more than a quarter of work, and the Packers held a 9-0 lead over the St. Louis Rams at halftime of Saturday’s preseason game at the Edward Jones Dome.

A 33-yard pass from Rodgers to Jermichael Finley got the Packers rolling early in the second quarter. Eddie Lacy followed with a powerful run of 11 yards. On third-and-five from the Rams 21, Rodgers was sacked by Robert Quinn. Mason Crosby was then good from 48 yards, his second field goal of the game, which gave him an early lead in his competition with Giorgio Tavecchio.

Cornerback Davon House atoned for having been beaten a couple of times in the Packers’ preseason opener last week by knocking away a pass while in tight coverage on a third-down play. That play helped give the Packers the ball at their 35 following a Rams punt. At that point, Rodgers was replaced at quarterback by Graham Harrell with 9:38 to play in the first half.

Harrell avoided an interception on his first play when the Rams were flagged for pass interference. Tight end D.J. Williams didn’t help Harrell’s cause by dropping a perfectly thrown deep pass up the seam. A play later, tight end Brandon Bostick hauled in a 13-yard dart by Harrell. A drop by wide receiver Tyrone Walker, his first of two, didn’t help matters, and Harrell’s first series ended with a Tim Masthay punt.

The Packers went to a mixture of ones and twos on defense midway through the second quarter, but there was no falloff in the defense’s play. Rookie cornerback Micah Hyde got credit for another pass defensed and continued his strong play. Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein missed wide to the right from 50 yards and the Packers defense continued to pitch a shutout.

Green Bay scored its third field goal of the game when Tavecchio hit from 38 yards with two seconds left on the first-half clock.

Lacy carried eight times for 40 yards and displayed his power running style on a 15-yard run in the first quarter. Finley led the Packers in receiving in the first half with four catches for 78 yards. Rodgers threw wide of Finley on a pass that offered touchdown potential on the Packers’ first drive of the game.
