We know this much after the Packers win over the Bengals:


-   Aaron Rodgers was Green Bay's leading rusher.

-   Cedric Benson flashed some signs of being able to be thee guy at RB.

-   Graham Harrell AND  the 2nd team offense struggled once again.

-   The Packers now have 10 turnovers in three preseason games.


The leader of the Pack was 12 for 22 for 154 yards and one interception, and Green Bay finally moved the football in Cincinnati on Thursday night.   Rodgers scrambled for a pair of first quarter touchdowns giving Green Bay a 14-0 lead, but his one mistake of the night led to a Bengals field goal.   Benson had six carries for 38 yards along with one reception for ten yards against his old team, and it looked as though the former Bengal ran with purpose and production.   Donald Driver had his first catch of the preseason and the Packers spread the football around to 12 different receivers.   Greg Jennings returned to action and led the way with two receptions for 37 yards.  Green Bay also had five different backs carry the football for a total of 122 yards on the ground.   Defensively Dezmand Moses led the way with five tackles while Erik Walden registered the Packers lone quarterback sack of the night.   Sam Shields and Jamari Lattimore both had interceptions and the latter of the two returned his 27 yards for a touchdown late in the 4th quarter to put the game away in Green Bay's 27-13 win.   The Packers have three training camp practices left starting on Sunday with their final game of the preseason on Thursday night at Lambeau Field against Kansas City.  It will be a busy weekend for Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson as they reduce their roster to the league minimum of 75 players by 3:00 pm on Monday.
