1. JAMES JONES HAULS IN 50-YARD PASS
Jones and Aaron Rodgers played briefly, but long enough to produce a 50-yard pass play down the left sideline in the Packers’ first offensive series of the game. Jones beat the coverage and hauled in the perfectly thrown pass. The play carried to the Cardinals 6-yard line, but the Packers failed to score.
2. DAVID BAKHTIARI PLAYS WELL AT LEFT TACKLE
The rookie from Colorado eased a lot of concerns for the loss of Bryan Bulaga by turning in a strong performance against the Cardinals. He played the entire first half, didn’t allow a sack and was effective at providing a lane for James Starks on at least one running play. “I didn’t feel overwhelmed at all,” Bakhtiari said. “I bet I had some minuses when the coaches grade it, but I felt good overall with the way I played, especially for the first game.”
3. TYRONE WALKER LEADS PACKERS IN RECEIVING
The undrafted free agent from Illinois State caught five passes for 41 yards, as he continued his pursuit of a roster spot. Walker also tackled Patrick Peterson, impressively, following a Graham Harrell interception.
