GREEN BAY, Wis. — Approaching the goal line near the end of a 13-yard run, Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Hundley lowered his right shoulder into a defender and bounced across the goal line for a touchdown.

If he had to do it all over again, the right-handed Hundley might have avoided contact. But adrenaline took over on what might well be his final first-quarter snap all season.

Hundley, the backup to Aaron Rodgers, also threw for a score to lead the Packers to a 24-10 win Thursday night over the Los Angeles Rams in the preseason finale.

“I did give it second thought,” Hundley said with a chuckle about his touchdown run. “But when you’re that close to the goal line, I just wanted to get in. I didn’t care how I was going to do it, I just dove.”

The Packers (3-1) look set at quarterback with Hundley backing up two-time NFL MVP Rodgers. The defense had its moments, too, albeit against a Rams offense that started third-stringer Dan Orlovsky at quarterback.

Both teams played mostly backups for most of the night. But the Packers’ defense will surely get a shot of confidence after forcing two first-half turnovers to set up scores.

Green Bay also got what could be its starting cornerback group on the field for the first time in a preseason game. Davon House returned from a hamstring injury, joining Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins on the first series.
