Green Bay falls to Tennessee in preseason opener
Story By Newswatch 12 Sports

GREEN BAY - Jackie Battle scored on a 7-yard touchdown run with 5:02 left, and the Titans rallied to beat the Green Bay Packers 20-16 Saturday night in Ken Whisenhunt's coaching debut in Tennessee.

Rookie Zach Mettenberger made up for two turnovers in the fourth quarter by completing all three passes for 71 yards to set up Battle's go-ahead touchdown. It was Tennessee's first lead in the preseason opener, which was played mostly in a pouring rain.

With quarterbacks having trouble holding on to the ball, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy had to feel good about his pregame decision to scratch not only Aaron Rodgers but also Eddie Lacy along with eight other Packers.

Davante Adams muffed a punt in the first quarter, which led to the Titans' first touchdown, a 13-yard run by Shonn Greene. Rookie Bishop Sankey caught a 5-yard TD pass from Charlie Whitehurst.
