Green Bay Packers Open Preseason with A 36-19 Win Over Cincinnati Bengals

The starters and rookies of the Green Bay Packers got some early work in a 36-19 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday night.

The win at Paycor Stadium gave a positive preseason opener for the Packers.

Quarterback Jordan Love led the offense and hit wide receiver Romeo Doubs in the first quarter.

Overall, Love finished 7-of-10 for 46 yards throughout the match.

The defensive plays got a three-and-out, highlighted by a sack from CB Keisean Nixon.

Besides the role players, some rookies like quarterback Sean Clifford and undrafted Emanuel Wilson also gave significant contributions.

Clifford recovered from giving two interceptions to provide multiple scoring drives for the Packers.

He got a pretty decent match after having 20-of-26 for 208 yards with two INTs and one touchdown.

His touchdown pass was to Tyler Davis, who exited with a knee injury later.

Rookie Wilson had six carries for two TDs and 111 yards.

Tyler Goodson also scored a touchdown run but later left with a shoulder injury.

Defensively, rookie CB Carrington Valentine had Green Bay Packers’ other interception and additional pass breakups.

After leading 21-16 at halftime, Packers finished the match with a 36-19 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Perhaps it gives positive optimism to the fans after Green Bay finished last season with a disappointing 8-9 record.
