4. Rams’ defense can’t stop Hundley
With Aaron Rodgers resting for when it matters the most on opening weekend, Brett Hundley enjoyed all of the extra playing time he received at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers during the preseason. And believe it or not, Hundley actually looked pretty solid for the Packers throughout the course of the preseason to make the Packers feel confident if something were to ever happen with Rodgers.
Against the Los Angeles Rams, Hundley completed 11 of 21 passes for 99 yards with a touchdown, and even managed to add another touchdown on the ground from 13 yards out. Just like a few other big-name quarterbacks in the NFL, Hundley is one of those players who have an extra advantage over opponents due to his ability to run with the football if needed, and it’s certainly made a difference for the Packers’ offense over the last couple of weeks.
Having to face a quarterback like Hundley instead of Rodgers was supposed to be an advantage for the Rams, and it was frustrating to see the backup defenders fail to take advantage of the situation. Even if it was the final game of preseason, it would have been nice to see a better effort from Los Angeles to keep Hundley in line when the backup quarterback was in the game.
