Aaron Rodgers expects 12 personnel to be'big part of Packers identity

Green Bay headed to Washington where they faced the Redskins in the second preseason game. On one throw, Cousins led Chris Thompson on a nicely-placed ball that went for a 29-yard gain. Otherwise, there has been little rhythm and timing. They used their top two draft picks on defensive backs Kevin King and Josh Jones. In Washington's first 24 plays, it managed just 76 yards.
A week after putting up a flawless passer rating (158.3) in the opener against Philadelphia, Hill led the Packers to a 21-17 come-from-behind win at Washington on Saturday night with a 23-yard touchdown scamper in the fourth quarter. He did, and looked sharp - throwing a touchdown pass and going 6-of-8 for 37-yards.
In the first 28 minutes of the first half, the offense stalled and sputtered, looking much as it had in the Redskins' first preseason game against the Ravens.
Arguably the best preseason matchup of Week 3, if you go simply by records, would be Green Bay visiting Denver with both clubs at 2-0 in the exhibition season. Their first meeting took place in November 1932, when the Washington franchise was known as the Boston Braves, before moving to Washington in 1937. 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. The blocking has not been good - it's not the same guy missing a block, either.

The Packers running game struggled for the second straight week. Saturday night's performance was a major "up" - and something Hawkins would like to use as a launching pad, perhaps to a starting job. Gruden had said he wanted to see more physicality from the young back, and Perine responded, generating yards after contact. Perine, who gained 45 yards on eight carries, also appeared to handle protection duties better, proving to be a quick study.
A year ago in his second season as a starting quarterback in the National Football League, the former Michigan State star threw for 4,917 yards. He gave up a 38-yard catch but give credit to quarterback Brett Hundley for a ideal throw. The Packers now hold a 20-15-1 edge in the all-time series between the two teams, including an 18-14-1 advantage in regular season play. Other than that, Cousins missed high, or stuck with his initial reads and left open receivers crying for the ball. He also broke up a would-be interception thanks to his leaping ability and athleticism. Cousins then threw three incompletions before Dustin Hopkins converted a 34-yard field goal. They need to work a lot more together so Cousins can develop a trust in him. But they didn't realize he was as good a pass-catcher as he has shown.
Moreau did give up a 38-yard reception to Jeff Janis but later he had a nice pass breakup on a comeback route by Geronimo Allison.
Rodgers showed no signs of rust in his quality cameo at Washington, and he found immediate chemistry with new target Martellus Bennett, the tight end's touchdown showcasing his red zone talent. They should build off the momentum they created in the second half, and that may propel them to some more success in the third preseason contest.
