Previewing the Packers-Bengals preseason game Thursday, with broadcast information.
The Packers are winless at 0-2, while the Bengals have won both of their games. Of course, it's meaningless except for roster spot competitions and getting tuned up for the regular season, but wins inspire confidence.
This third preseason game around the NFL is the time to look for both teams' first units to get extensive playing time together into the second half. So a lot of eyes will be on the quarterbacks, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and the Bengals' Andy Dalton to see how they perform before they are likely rested (or played sparingly) in the preseason finale.
With the Packers looking to click on offense and the Bengals dealing with a few injuries on defense, this could be the week that the Packers' offense clicks and produces early. The Bengals are also without a couple of key skill position players, including tight end Jermaine Gresham.
