Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay had two 100-yard rushers and Brett Favre did his first "Lambeau Leap" on Sunday. Both were signs that things are perhaps starting to turn around for the Packers.Or maybe the Arizona Cardinals are just that bad.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
This wasn't a great week for quarterback Matt Leinart (right) and the Arizona offense. The Packers' defense played the Cardinals' wide receivers aggressively and that created disruption in their passing attack. Green Bay was able to run the ball effectively with running backs Ahman Green and Vernand Morency.
Week after week, the Cardinals have not been able to establish any consistent running game and this week was no exception. A slow start on offense set the tone for Arizona. Although the Cardinals were able to put together a couple of late drives, it was not enough to make up for their mistakes.
McCarthy said the Packers were waiting for X-ray results on Martin, who injured his jaw. McCarthy also didn't know the severity of an elbow injury to fullback Brandon Miree. ... McCarthy blamed himself for the first-quarter fake field goal. "It's a bad call by me, frankly," he said. ... Green scored his 51st touchdown rushing as a Packer, surpassing Paul Hornung for second in team history. Jim Taylor is the team's all-time record holder with 81.
