Wentz tosses TD pass in Eagles' preseason opening loss to Packers

Wentz tosses TD pass in Eagles' preseason opening loss to Packers

Bryce Treggs caught 7 passes for 91 yards.

"I thought Brett handled some things", McCarthy said.

All kidding aside, that's the play-it-safe preseason world National Football League coaches and players - and fans, too - live in these days, and given the impact wide receiver Jordy Nelson's season-ending knee injury had on the Packers' season two years ago, who could blame them for playing, as coach Mike McCarthy likes to call it, "the high side of caution" with the team's most important players?

Barnett broke Reggie White's sack record at the University Tennessee and began his pro career fittingly wearing an Eagles jersey and playing at Lambeau Field.

No running back carried the ball more than four times for Green Bay, which threw the ball twice as much as they ran it (36 passing plays vs. 18 rushing attempts).

After a slow first quarter, Trevor Davis' 68-yard punt return touchdown gave the Packers the lead for good.

Crucial Rajya Sabha Polls today; Amit Shah, Ahmed Patel in fray
They colluded with Britishers to deny freedom of India and today they are boasting of freedom and other things. The move comes just a day after the voting was held in Gandhinagar .

Despite leaving the field with a 24-9 victory over the Eagles-their seventh of the aforementioned 16 meetings-five players also left the field with injuries. It will be the third preseason meeting between the teams in the last five seasons.

McGloin made a touchdown-saving tackle in the second quarter, but only after overthrowing a pass right to Packers linebacker Joe Thomas, who returned it 30 yards to the Eagles 17.

En route to their lead, the Packers mustered a measly 83 yards of total offense in the first half.

Next up for the Eagles is a home game against the Bills next Thursday night. Many rookies and veterans have been counting the days to the first game of the preseason. He did not return. But, then again, no Packers running back really got a chance to make a big impression.

Alshon Jeffery is past his recent shoulder injury but did not suit up, nor did guard Brandon Brooks (ankle), receiver Marcus Johnson (hamstring) or running back Wendell Smallwood (hamstring).

Another quiet performer was Evans, the Packers' safety who had been mostly a special teams attribution prior to tonight. The team later announced that Dupre had movement and feeling in all his extremities and was transported to a local hospital for observation. "I'm trying to take it just like any other game with preparation".
