Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers won their first game of the preseason last night, defeating the Bengals 27-13 in Cincinnati. The win kept the Pack from going 0-3 in the preseason for the first time since 1993. Interesting little piece of trivia there. But more importantly, we finally got to see the first team offense and defense get into a bit more sync than we've seen in the prior two games.Having said that, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was scrambling much more than he should have been, even accounting for two rushing TDs off scrambles. You don't want the league MVP on the run that much during a game. When he had a chance to remain in the pocket, especially on quick slant throws, he and his receivers looked sharp. On the other hand, some of the deeper routes and passes didn't connect the way you expect them to once the regular season kicks in.The other big plus on offense was seeing running back Cedric Benson, late of the Bengals, rush for 38 yards in six carries.

"A blessing has came into the world," Finley tweeted Thursday morning. "Sorry Fans. 88 is Heading back to GB from Cinny to take care...
After going with a youth movement at running back for the entire offseason, the Packers caved earlier this month and signed veteran running back Cedric Benson after injury prone youngster James Starks suffered a turf toe injury, on top of a rough Training Camp and preseason, that threatened his availability for the regular season. As could be expected, the Packers are likely to start...
All offseason the Green Bay Packers have been hoping that someone would step up and take hold of the starting running back position and last night in Cincinnati, the newly acquired Cedric Benson may have done just that with his six-carry, 38 yard performance against his former team.
Benson, who was just signed as a free agent by Green Bay a little over a week ago, is coming off three...
The Green Bay Packers are no longer winless this preseason. A 27-13 victory in Cincinnati over the Bengals won't mean much once records are erased in less than two weeks, but coach Mike McCarthy and the Packers finally have a long list of positives to talk about when they review the game film this weekend.Five things we learned from the Packers' win:1. Cedric Benson is a...
What a difference one player can make. Cedric Benson breathed life into the Packers' offense during an outstanding debut at Cincinnati on Thursday night. These killer numbers drive home what was obvious as Benson produced on the ground and set things up through the air.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers ran everywhere, including the end zone. Twice.
The MVP quarterback led Green Bay to a big first half Thursday night, running for 52 yards and two touchdowns during a 27-13 preseason victory that got the Packers' offense moving at full speed.
The Packers (No. 1 in the AP Pro32) wanted to look crisp coming off a drubbing by Cleveland. Rodgers...
Didn’t anyone else watch the Packer game and have that Aaron Rodgers smirk titlebelt game thing going last night? Yeah, me too.

Last week Aaron Rodgers threw a touchdown in practice and broke out the titlebelt. I blame THAT and not the Giants or our defense why they lost last year. The titlebelt...
