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

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

Rodgers and the first team offense looked to be firing on all cylinders, which is scary considering it will only get better the more time the unit has to play together. Doctson was open on a rub route at the goal line, but Cousins didn't pull the trigger. They couldn't run the ball (4 yards on three carries). Washington scored just 3 points and Cousins threw just two passes in that game. He was expected to be a special teams player and a fringe roster candidate.

Drive summary: The Packers got their drive started with some Aaron Rodgers artistry. Cousins averaged just 6.3 yards per attempt. However, few people outside of Wisconsin know about the nearly 60-year-old tradition of Packers players riding kids' bikes to practice throughout training camp. Hawkins, who made the team as an undrafted free agent previous year but played sparingly after a key mistake against Detroit in Week 3, now must build on the performance. No. 1 running back Ty Montgomery sat out vs. Washington and could again with a leg injury.

"He just tells you to put your hand over your heart", said left guard Lane Taylor, who's entering his fifth season as a Packer.

He made a nice downhill tackle inside the red zone, shedding a block and stopping Packers running back Jamaal Williams for a one-yard gain. Injuries sapped his ability to make the plays the way he wanted to, but he was still feared during his entire career. Trainers and coaches plan to test him out pregame and see how he feels. A few plays later Samaje Perine converted a third and two with a 14-yard scamper around right end for a first down at the 14. Moreau later had tight coverage downfield, and rookie safety Montae Nicholson came over to help in coverage, forcing an incompletion.

He showed off his arm strength in his last outing. A week after fumbling and appearing tentative against Baltimore, Perine looked much more decisive as he carried the ball. "It takes effort - effort", Bennett said.

BCI has assigned its special investigations, crime scene and cyber units to the investigation, DeWine said. The person who was arrested had been riding in the same vehicle as the shooter, according to WTOV.

At the start of the fourth quarter he had six carries for 32 yards, with a long of 14. "He did a very good job managing that". The Redskins knew he could run when they drafted him. Although McCarthy said Callahan made a couple mistakes "trying to do a little bit too much", he has had a good camp and played well against the Eagles. But they didn't realize he was as good a pass-catcher as he has shown. Lowry played sparingly most of last season, came on late in the year, and projects as a starter this season.

Most of the preseason focus, though, will be on Washington's offense. The sideline erupted, and countless players slapped Paul on the helmet or back as he returned.

After his brother Michael's decision to sit during the national anthem a week earlier, outspoken tight end Martellus Bennett chose to take a different approach - he drew a political cartoon and posted it on Instagram on Friday. "We just didn't have that personnel grouping consistently, and 12 personnel is a grouping that if you can use it effectively - you see how New England used it previous year with Marty and [Rob Gronkowski] - it's tough to stop".

The victor of the battle gets himself a roster spot.
