Tauscher shuts down Kerney



October 15, 2008

The Green Bay Packers are back to .500 and now gearing up for a big game on Sunday.
They're breathing a little easier after their first victory in four weeks, and some credit goes to Tuesday Night Touchback host Mark Tauscher.

Going head-to-head with Seattle's Pro Bowl defensive end Patrick Kerney, Tauscher pitched a shutout.

Remember in last year's playoff games Tauscher held Kerney without a sack or even a single tackle. Sunday Kerney had one solo tackle but, again, zero sacks.

"He did a good job in pass protection," said Packers offensive line coach James Campen, "and Kerney is a fine player, and Tausch did OK in the run game."

"I don't think it was like last year's performance but Mark was solid," offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said.
