Saints end preseason winless after loss to Packers

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Rookie quarterback Brett Hundley threw for four scores, Myles White made a case for a spot on the Packers' injury-stricken receiving corps with two touchdowns, and Green Bay finished the preseason with a 38-10 win Thursday night over winless New Orleans.

Hundley connected with Larry Pinkard on a 77-yard catch-and-run touchdown pass in the third quarter for the Packers (2-2). Pinkard had a highlight-reel play that the roster longshot needed to make an impression with cuts looming, though he later left with an apparent left arm injury in the third quarter.

A Saints' secondary decimated by injuries had an uneven night.

Pinkard's long touchdown came after safety Pierre Warren slipped and cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste lost a race to the end zone. Cornerback Kyle Wilson had an interception but was called for two penalties.

Willie Snead, vying for a Saints receiver spot, caught a 7-yard touchdown pass from Luke McCown on the first New Orleans drive.

McCown started and was 5 of 5 for 82 yards in his only series. Drew Brees was among the many regulars who were held out with the regular season starting in less than two weeks.

With backup jobs at stake, Ryan Griffin took over for McCown and went 7 of 13 for 56 yards. Rookie Garrett Grayson, who was drafted in the third round, played the second half and moved the ball effectively at times, finishing 8 of 19 for 71 yards but throwing two interceptions.

Hundley appears ticketed to be the third-string quarterback in Green Bay behind NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and Scott Tolzien, who started on Thursday with Rodgers watching in sweats.

A fifth-round draft pick out of UCLA, Hundley flashed promise for a second straight game in showing zip on his passes while moving the offense effectively. He was 16 of 23 for 236 yards.

Playing without most of its starters for the majority of the game, the Packers defense shut out the Saints after the first quarter. Tay Glover-Wright had an interception.
