Packers Offensive Starters To Get Longer Look

Week three of the NFL‘s preseason has the Green Bay Packers (0-2) at Cincinnati to take on the Bengals (2-0).  After playing just four series over the first two preseason games, quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers first string offense is expected to play the entire first half tonight.  In losses to the Chargers and Browns, Rodgers completed just 8 of 19 passes for 75 yards.  He has thrown one touchdown pass and been intercepted once.  Rodgers doesn’t expect a full game plan for tonight’s contest in Cincinnati…

Tonight’s game between the Packers and Bengals begins at 6 PM at Paul Brown Stadium.

Kewaunee native, Colin Cochart is listed as the third tightend on the Bengals depth chart (behind Jermaine Gresham and former Packer Donald Lee).  Through two preseason games, Cochart has yet to catch a pass.  During the 2011 regular season with Cincinnati, he had five receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown.  This will be the first time that Cochart plays against the Packers.

This is the 17th preseason meeting between the two teams.  The Bengals hold an 11-4-1 advantage in the preseason series.  The two teams have only met eleven times in the regular season.  Cincinnati leads that series, 6-5.
