PRESEASON - Friday August 4th 2000 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Tod McBride returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown and Green Bay's defense shut out the Jets in the second half. The Packers took a 27-24 lead, their first of the game, with 14:37 to play on the interception return by McBride, a backup cornerback. Ryan Longwell kicked a 35-yard field goal, his third of the night, with 1:57 left. New York's Kevin Williams fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Rondell Mealey had a 15-yard touchdown run with 1:35 left. Green Bay's defense allowed 286 total yards and committed three penalties in the first half, but clamped down when Lucas replaced Chad Pennington. The Jets had just 144 yards in the second half. Two backup quarterbacks starred in the game Pennington had his second strong game for the Jets, completing 7 of 11 passes for 136 yards, while Green Bay's Matt Hasselbeck completed his first eight passes and finished 11-for-15 with 162 yards and two touchdowns. New York, which led 24-17 at halftime, got two first-half touchdown runs from Richie Anderson. Curtis Martin also ran for a score before the reserves entered the game. Donald Driver and Charles Lee caught touchdown passes from Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck had an outstanding preseason last year, but got no significant action during the regular season. The Packers still signed Hasselbeck to a 3-year contract extension during the offseason and traded Aaron Brooks.
