QB Jordan Love played the bulk of the game and finished 12-of-24 for 113 yards with one TD for a 77.3 passer rating. His TD pass was to WR Romeo Doubs, who had three catches for 24 yards. WR Juwann Winfree also had three catches for 41.

The biggest play of the game came midway through the fourth quarter when No. 3 QB Danny Etling ran around right end on a read-option and raced untouched 51 yards for a touchdown. It turned Green Bay’s three-point lead into a 10-point advantage.

Defensively, LB Ray Wilborn was the Packers’ leading tackler with seven total stops, including a sack on a scramble by rookie Saints QB Ian Book, who played the whole game. Recently signed S Micah Abernathy had an interception for the Packers.

Ian Book started at quarterback for New Orleans. Packers inside linebacker Isaiah McDuffie had a good first series, tackling Deonte Harty for a 1-yard gain on second-and-13 before chasing down a scrambling Book to force the Saints to punt.
