[August 12, 2017]    No. 2 QB Brett Hundley played the entire first half and worked three series with the No. 1 offense because Green Bay held Aaron Rodgers out of the game. Hundley finished 8-of-15 for 90 yards with one touchdown, one interception and a 66.0 passer rating. Hundley's numbers could have been much better, but the Packers dropped at least three of his passes. Still, Hundley and the Packers were pleased with how his night went.


RB Ty Montgomery is supposed to be Green Bay's bellcow at running back this season. But Montgomery had a rough first outing, carrying the ball three times for zero yards and losing a fumble. In all, the Packers rushed for just 47 yards on 18 carries (2.6).

Rookie second-round CB Kevin King had an up-and-down debut. King allowed a 38-yard touchdown to Eagles' wideout Mack Hollins, but led the Packers with four tackles and helped force a fumble of tight end Billy Brown. King is battling for a starting cornerback job opposite veteran Davon House.

Rookie WR Malachi Dupre suffered a concussion and left the game on a stretcher after he was leveled by Eagles safety Tre Sullivan. Green Bay third-year cornerback Damarious Randall also left with a concussion, but both players were back with the team Friday.
