Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner found the end zone twice in Thursday night’s 24-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers at State Farm Stadium.

The first was midway through the second quarter from two yards out to cut the Cardinals’ deficit to three at 17-14.

Conner’s second touchdown run of the night came in the fourth quarter from nine yards out to cut the Packers’ lead to 24-21 with 10:45 to go in the contest.

The two scores give the Arizona running back a total of eight touchdowns on the 2021 season.

All of those scores have come in the last eight games.

Only MacArthur Lane has more TDs through the first eight games of a season in Cardinals history.

The eight scores are also more than he had all of last year with the Pittsburgh Steelers (six).

Conner finished the game a total of 22 yards on five carries (4.4 yards per rush).

He now has 336 yards on 89 attempts (3.8 per carry) in a Cardinals uniform.
