5 Players Who Stood Out for the Green Bay Packers in Preseason Week 3

With the Green Bay Packers 31-21 win over the Oakland Raiders in their dress rehearsal for the regular season, they move to 2-1 in the preseason. However, the record is irrelevant at this point. What's important is how the team played and who looked prepared to start the season in two weeks. These five Packers stood out the most at Lambeau Field Friday night.

While Richard Rodgers struggled with his blocking a bit, he is the Packers' best option at tight end. He finished the day with two catches for 40 yards, including a 32-yard catch and run on the first possession of the game. He could be a real game-changer at the tight end position.

James Starks better be careful because DuJuan Harris may be making a run at the backup running back position. He showed burst out of the backfield, and he is a much better pass-catcher than Starks. Harris also impressed in the return game. He finished with 56 yards on 12 carries and 42 yards on two catches.

Eddie Lacy only played one series, but that's all he really needed. He is ready for the regular season. On the first drive of the game, he rushed the ball six times for 36 yards and touchdown. He should pick up right where he left off after last season's Rookie of the Year campaign.

Julius Peppers looked like the Julius Peppers of five years ago Friday night against the Oakland Raiders. He was quick off the ball, and he made impactful plays in the backfield all night. He finished the night with three tackles and sack. He should enjoy seeing plenty of one-on-one coverage with Clay Matthews on the other side.

The Green Bay Packers finally have depth in the secondary, and Davon House is a byproduct of that depth. With Casey Hayward not playing, House was the best defender on the field for the Packers in Week 3. He finished the night with five tackles and three passes defended. Not too bad for a team's nickel cornerback.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
