After Aaron Rodgers left the game against Washington following his first series of the preseason, Brett Hundley came in to relieve him and led a touchdown drive of his own midway through the second quarter to give the Packers a 14-3 lead.

On his two series, Hundley has now completed all six of his pass attempts for 68 yards and the aforementioned touchdown, a five-yard pass to running back Aaron Jones. Hundley’s best pass was a 38-yard deep ball up the right sideline to Jeff Janis, who made a terrific over-the-shoulder catch:

A few plays later came the touchdown, on a play that featured a blown assignment by the Washington defense. Jones leaked out of the backfield and was wide open and Hundley tossed him an on-target ball while backpedaling for the score:

The Packers also got contributions from Geronimo Allison and Trevor Davis on the drive, as the two wideouts each had a reception on the drive.

Expect to see Hundley play the rest of the first half before giving way to Joe Callahan and Taysom Hill in the third and fourth quarters.
