The two teams went into the half with the Packers up by a score, and looking to pull off a solid home upset of the New Orleans Saints.
The Saints have been far from ideal this year.
"At halftime, you could have, against this team, easily have been down 14, 21 points", coach Sean Payton said.
The positive for the Saints is that Green Bay hasn't been able to cash in on those turnovers with points in their first game without injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Saints had 25 more plays in the game than the home team and their 324 passing yards almost quadrupled the output by the backup QB or the Packers. "I need to put my feet up in that hot water with all this running he got me doing".
Packers cornerback Damarious Randall stepped in front of Brandon Coleman in the end zone to pick Brees' 20-yard pass. The Saints had just taken a 19-17 lead and then forced a three-and-out punt by bringing pressure on Hundley on third-and-9. Ted Ginn Jr. picked up most of the receiving yards and finished with 141 of them on seven receptions.
Packers quarterback Brett Hundley will be the starting quarterback for this Sunday when the team takes on the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field.
What I liked: The resilience, first and foremost.
Jones opened the scoring with a 46-yard touchdown run.
On the next possession, Hundley was intercepted by safety Kenny Vaccaro.
"I wouldn't call us a dominant team". "I think what I like is that we are encountering a lot of different situations and things in games and finding different ways to win and learning a lot about ourselves in the process, finding what our bread and butter is offensively and defensively, and just continuing to build confidence with these wins".
"I do box jumps every Monday, and visualize that while I'm doing them", Brees said.
Fantasy fallout: Ginn had his biggest day yet with the Saints (on offense, anyway). Jones had three catches for 7 yards. New Orleans hosts the Chicago Bears next weekend. In seven career games against the Packers, he has topped 300 passing yards all seven times.
