Packers up to No. 3 in power rankings for preseason Week 3

Packers up to No. 3 in power rankings for preseason Week 3

The Green Bay Packers are one of a few teams who could easily go the entire preseason without playing a single starter, and still be in solid shape on offense for the regular season thanks to Aaron Rodgers. But Rob Kelley got stopped for no gain on the first carry. He will nearly certainly be the No. 2 back behind Kelley, while Chris Thompson (5 catches, 52 yards) will be the main third down/passing back. After the fifth, Cousins had steered Washington to only three first downs - one via a defensive penalty - while completing 8 of 15 passes for 67 yards against a Packers secondary missing two of its top three cornerbacks. The ex-Cal wide receiver muffed his first punt out of the gate against Washington.

3 spot last week, but drop one below the Packers, largely due to the drama surrounding star running back Le'Veon Bell.

Rookie Fabian Moreau, who only recently started practicing with the team, made two big splashes on special-teams duty. He also caught a 29-yard pass from backup QB Colt McCoy, part of a much stronger performance for Perine than a week ago, when he fumbled. The 33-year-old still has really good speed, but it's debatable whether he would have beaten a starting safety as handily as he did first-year player Jermaine Whitehead. He finished with five tackles and three pass break-ups, and he made his presence felt from the opening drive (a third-and-12 tackle, an end zone pass break-up). After Derek Hart, the James Madison free agent struggled on Family Night and to a lesser degree, on Nitschke Field at practice, the Packers signed former long snapper Brett Goode.

Linebackers Mason Foster and Will Compton started in last week's game against the Eagles.

He used his mind to hurry the Packers to the line and get off a play when he saw the defense trying to make a substitution on third down.

He caught the Redskins with 12 players on the field on third down, which - after review - gave the Packers an automatic first down.

The running back displayed improvement over last week's outing. The Packers reserves rallied in the fourth quarter for a 21-17 win. The Redskins knew he could run when they drafted him. "Because that's the way we play offense, and we play offense running everything through the quarterback position".

But a further investigation has led the Grants Pass-based company to question this certification. To test for safety, the only thing you can see through a safe solar filter is the sun itself.

Williams has picked up the most traction as a real threat to Montgomery's starting spot, excelling in pass protection and showing power as a runner.

Cousins completed a 43-yard pass to tight end Vernon Davis and a fourth-and-goal 4-yard touchdown toss to Jamison Crowder with 13 seconds left in the half to make things look a little better than they actually were for coach Jay Gruden's offense.

The preseason is halfway done, and the other half remains important.

Kyler Fackrell flashed as a pass rusher last season, but his run defense needs a ton of work.

Granted, Cousins' most dependable target, Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed, hasn't yet suited up.

"Our approach has always been to give the history and the understanding of what the national anthem means, and why it's played before any National Football League game, particularly how [the tradition] started after World War II", McCarthy told Wilde.
