Green Bay falls short in Denver, Hundley continues to shine

The Packers suffered their first preseason loss on Saturday, falling 20-17 in Denver against the Broncos.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers saw action in the first two offensive drives throwing three for five with 12 yards. 

Backup quarterback Brett Hundley continued his impressive preseason throwing for 186 yards and rushing for 14 with a touchdown. 

Second year safety Kentrell Brice intercepted Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian in the first quarter and returned the ball 42 yards to the Broncos two yard line. Ty Montgomery scored a touchdown on the ensuing play. 

After the Packers took a 10-0 lead, the Broncos scored 20 unanswered points and held on to win their third preseason game in a row.

"It's great tape for our guys to learn from," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. "We've got another week to get ready for the Rams." 

The Packers wrap up their preseason schedule at home against the L.A. Rams on Thursday, August 31 at 6:00 p.m.
