Rodgers Leads Packers Over Bengals 27-13


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers led Green Bay to a big first half Thursday night, running for 52 yards and two touchdowns for a 27-13 preseason victory.

The MVP quarterback got the Packers (No. 1 in the AP Pro32) moving at full speed. He went 12 of 22 for 154 yards while leading the Packers to 245 yards and a 17-6 halftime lead. He also scrambled six times, scoring on runs of 12 and 5 yards.

Running back Cedric Benson made his Packers debut against his former team and ran six times for 38 yards.

The Bengals (No. 14) played their starters into the third quarter but they couldn't get a touchdown, failing even on a first-and-goal from the 1-yard line.
