Green Bay Packers (2-0) 27, Denver Broncos 12
PRESEASON - Monday August 23rd 1999 (at Madison)
(MADISON) - Backup Matt Hasselbeck threw three touchdown passes in the first half as the Packers beat the Broncos Monday at rain-soaked Camp Randall Stadium. Before a sellout crowd, the Packers scored 24 first-half points against the Broncos, who struggled for the first time this year after two easy preseason wins. A steady rain fell until moments before game time, soaking into the artificial turf. The conditions resulted in numerous slips by both teams, but Hasselbeck and the Packers moved the ball easily, scoring 17 points on their first three possessions and putting the game away early. Brett Favre started at quarterback for the Packers but left after eight plays when he was knocked to the ground by John Mobley and landed awkwardly on his right hand. Favre stayed on the sideline for the first half but watched the second half from the locker room. The Packers said no X-rays were taken of Favre's hand and the injury wasn't serious. Hasselbeck spent last year on the Packers' practice squad but got the backup job when Rick Mirer was traded last Friday to the New York Jets.
