Final Score: Titans 20, Packers 16

The Green Bay Packers scored early in Saturday night’s preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans, but it was two late touchdowns by the Titans that made the difference.

Bishop Sankey and Jackie Battle both scored second-half touchdowns, leading Tennessee to a 20-16 win on a rainy night in Nashville.

Here’s how it went down:

James Starks Put Green Bay on the Board 4:26 In

Well, that didn’t take long.

Starks scored on a 20-yard touchdown to cap an 8-play, 64-yard drive and Green Bay took a 7-0 lead with 10:34 left in the first quarter.

Starks carried the ball on six of Green Bay’s eight plays, with a 5-yard scramble by Flynn and a 10-yard completion to Richard Rodgers accounting for the others.

Shonn Greene Scored a Touchdown, but Maikon Bonani Missed the Extra Point

Shonn Greene’s 13-yard rushing touchdown put the Titans on the board with 4:22 left in the first quarter, but for the second time in as many nights, an NFL kicker couldn’t handle the league’s next experiment with 33-yard extra points.

Maikon Bonani missed the PAT, leaving the Pack ahead 7-6.

Rajion Neal Broke a Long Scoring Drought

After scoring on its first drive, the Packers went scoreless until rookie running back Rajion Neal scored on a 12-yard rushing touchdown with 8:07 left in the third quarter to make it 13-7.

Green Bay tried to make it a three-posession game by going for two, but Scott Tolzien’s pass was incomplete.

Bishop Sankey Scored His 1st Career Touchdown

Titans rookie running back Bishop Sankey scored on a 5-yard pass from Charlie Whitehurst with 2:32 left in the third quarter for his first career touchdown, tying the game at 13.

Mason Crosbey Gave the Packers the Lead, but Jackie Battle Answered

Crosbey kicked a 32-yard field goal with 7:02 left to put Green Bay up 16-13, but Jackie Battle’s 7-yard touchdown run gave Tennessee a 20-16 lead with 5:02 left.
