The Green Bay Packers will be taking on the Cleveland Browns in preseason game number 2 tomorrow night. Rodgers will be looking to improve the performance he had in his first appearance of the 2012 season. The Packers will be facing a relatively you Browns defense that is full of injuries. One key to the Packers coming out of this game much improved will be the Packers ability to put pressure in the Browns 28-year-old Cleveland Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden.
The Packers didn’t have one of the top ranked defenses last season and they will be looking to improve that this year. If the Packers can apply enough pressure on Weeden they will force him to make mistakes. Weeden doesn’t look like a guy that can scramble out of trouble so far anyway. Aaron Rodgers will come out smoking this week I am sure. The Packers were out-played in week one and Rodgers probably isn’t going to have any of that this week. The Browns are planning at this point to test their number one guys for the entire first half. This will be a better test of the Green Bay defense.
The Packers on paper are a much better football team than the Cleveland Browns, the fans in Green Bay are looking for a blow out. Much will depend on how long Green Bay plays their starters. Last week we only saw Aaron Rodgers throw 8 passes completing just 2 of them. I look for those numbers to increase this week….
