Love throws 3 INTs in Packers loss to 49ers
Green Bay drops first preseason game of the year, 28-21
SAN FRANCISCO — On a night where Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love hoped to make an impression, it was his counterpart Trey Lance that stole the show.
Lance completed 4 of 5 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown to help San Francisco defeat Jordan Love and Green Bay in Santa Clara, Calif.
Love went for 176 yards on 13-for-24 passing and two touchdowns, but he struggled to solve the 49ers' secondary, throwing three interceptions.
Packers receiver B.J. Baylor turned heads, though, taking a catch and run 68 yards to the San Francisco 15-yard line. Baylor finished his night with two catches for 75 yards to lead the team in receiving.
Tyler Goodson, a rookie from Iowa, led Green Bay in rushing with 37 yards on 12 carries, while adding two catches for 24 yards.
Green Bay will be back in action Friday, Aug. 19 when they host New Orleans.
