1. DA­MAR­I­OUS RAN­DALL’S TACKLE SEAL­ING WIN VS. JAGUARS

Packer Plus - - Notebook -

Pack­ers 27, Jaguars 23; Sept. 11 at Ever­Bank Field In steamy Jack­sonville, Green Bay did just enough in to win their sea­son opener, in­clud­ing a de­fen­sive stand to seal the vic­tory. After the Green Bay of­fense failed to gar­ner a first down on its fi­nal drive and po­ten­tially run out the clock with a 27-23 lead, Jack­sonville marched down the field and faced fourth-and-1 at the Pack­ers’ 14-yard line with 23 sec­onds re­main­ing. Ran­dall made the big play, spear­head­ing a gang tackle of re­ceiver Allen Hurns, who caught a quick bub­ble pass on the right from QB Blake Bor­tles. Micah Hyde, Mor­gan Burnett, and Joe Thomas were also in the tackle that went for a one-yard loss. “It came down to a gutty play from our de­fense,” said head coach Mike McCarthy. “That was the stop of the day.”
