Steelers vs. Packers Preseason Week 2: 1st quarter in-game update

The Pittsburgh Steelers are back, and we keep you up to date with those who aren’t able to watch the game live. The 2018 NFL Preseason continued on Thursday, and the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers squared off at fabled Lambeau Field and plenty of starters were missing from the lineup. Without Ben Roethlisberger starting for Pittsburgh, it was Mason Rudolph who got the start, and it was a forgettable start. After Roosevelt Nix returned the kickoff, Rudolph’s first snap, and pass, resulted in a pick-six to Tremon Williams. After the Mason Crosby point-after the Packers held an...

Tramon Williams & Jimmy Graham start off Packers-Steelers with quick touchdowns

The former Packer spent three years away after signing a contract with the Cleveland Browns during the 2015 offseason, but at age 35 he returned to the Packers on a two-year deal this year. If his first snap of the preseason is any indication, that’s going to work out just fine. The Packers sat Williams in their first exhibition game, but he got the start at right cornerback against the Pittsburgh Steelers in game two. On the first play from...

Packers vs. Steelers Inactives: Green Bay sits Lane Taylor, Bryan Bulaga, Kevin King

It’s most hands on deck for the Packers tonight! The word out of Green Bay this week was that Aaron Rodgers was going to play for the Green Bay Packers in their second preseason game and their final exhibition contest at Lambeau Field. That indeed appears to be the case, as Rodgers — and almost the entire Packers starting lineup — is in uniform for tonight’s contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both of the Packers’ injured offensive tackles, David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga, were both in pads during warmups. However, Bulaga ended up being a scratch for the game, along with...
