Bradford, Rodgers sharp; Packers beat Rams 21-7
ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Aaron Rodgers and Sam Bradford each threw a touchdown pass in their preseason debuts and played into the second quarter in the Green Bay Packers’ 21-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Saturday.
Michael Sam played in the second half and got his first sack of the preseason, dropping Matt Flynn for a 10-yard loss in the fourth quarter to force a 49-yard field goal by Mason Crosby. Sam had a tackle earlier in that series.
Rodgers was 11 for 13 for 128 yards and a 3-yard score to Randall Cobb in a no-huddle offense on the opening series.
Bradford showed plenty of mobility in his first action since season-ending left knee surgery last November. He was 9 for 12 for 101 yards and an 11-yard touchdown pass to Lance Kendricks.
Eddie Lacy had five carries for 25 yards on the Packers’ 12-play, 86-yard drive to start the game.
