Packers vs. Saints score: Live updates, game stats, highlights TV and streaming info for Sunday Night Football – CBSSports.com


With both the Packers and Saints working without their top wide receiver on Sunday night, the two teams have leaned on their running backs and a heavy dose of short, quick throws. The lone big play of the first half came on an absolutely gorgeous play-action pass from Aaron Rodgers to Allen Lazard, which set up a touchdown toss to Lazard later in the drive. Rodgers finished the first half 9 of 16 for 104 yards and the score to Lazard, which like the big-gainer came on a play-action bootleg concept. 

For the Saints, Alvin Kamara did almost all of the damage, carrying the rock four times for 56 yards and hauling in seven passes for another 61 yards and a touchdown. Drew Brees seemed reluctant to throw the ball downfield, preferring instead to check it down to the targets he’s most comfortable with. Still, those shorter passes allowed the Saints to move the ball at a decent clip, and the last one of the half actually helped them pull in front despite a rocky start. With just six seconds remaining, Brees found Emmanuel Sanders over the middle for Sanders’ first score as a Saint, staking New Orleans to a 17-13 lead at the break.

Follow along as we continue live-blogging the festivities below.

Taysom Hill makes the wrong read on the read-option run, for some reason tries to run it right up the middle, gets stripped. Really bad play.

The call is rightfully overturned, and the Saints get the ball at the 48. No idea how that spot was so bad.

He doesn’t come anywhere close to picking up that first down. Really bad spot. Sean Payton is going to challenge the call, and also probably get fined for not wearing his mask correctly. (Again.)

Packers try to run it right up the middle with Aaron Jones, and two different Saints combine to shut down the run. He looked way short on the initial viewing but the way they have the ball spotted is making me reconsider that stance.

Rodgers audibles to a run on third-and-5, and Jamaal Williams comes up about a yard short. Looks like Green Bay will go for it, though.

Kamara has 16 touches for 191 yards and two scores, by the way. And the third quarter isn’t over yet.

Absolutely horrendous tackling from the Packers. That’s a disgrace. Incredible play by Kamara, just shaking off defenders left and right. Wow.

First real downfield attempt for Brees right there, and it’s not difficult to see why he hasn’t tried many of them. That one just barely got to Sanders on the comeback route.

This “Rodgers hasn’t thrown TDs to first-round picks” storyline is so tired. He’s had Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams. Is it really that big a difference that they all went in the second?

Wonder how much of that apparent push-off was from Malcolm Jenkins trying to back off on his own and free himself from a possible DPI call. Either way, the Packers TD stands. Green Bay is back in front, and Aaron Rodgers is very much on point.

GREAT adjustment from Marcedes Lewis to catch that pass, but it also looked like a really obvious push-off that should have been called offensive pass interference. We saw a MUCH weaker OPI call decide the Cowboys-Rams game in Week 1.

The Packers went right back to Ervin on the next play, and Rodgers did a really nice job carrying out the pass fake to give Ervin some room to run it to the left.

There’s a flag on Marcus Williams here, but it looked like that pass to Tyler Ervin was pretty uncatchable.
