Rob Leifheit-US PRESSWIRE
Charles Woodson: B
Woodson looked good for the Packers, despite only playing a couple series. He looked fluid and moved well enough to be ready for the regular season. Woodson was beat once down the sideline by Armon Binns, but the Bengals were unable to complete the pass.
Tramon Williams: A-
Williams looks back to his 2010 form after another solid preseason outing. He matched up mostly across from the talented A.J. Green. On the evening, Green was held to just one catch for only three yards. Having Williams back in great form will be a huge positive for the Packers' defense.
Sam Shields: B
Shields showed his playmaking ability, intercepting Zac Robinson's only pass of the game. While Shields possess that ability, he has been a liability in coverage late last season and early this preseason. Shields was okay tonight in coverage, outside of the interception. He was beat deep down the sideline early in the game after tripping, but Dalton's pass flew way over the head of the open receiver.
Casey Hayward: B-
Hayward was impressive against the Bengals, forcing a fumble late in the game. More times than not, Hayward did a solid job in coverage. He was beat for the Bengals only touchdown of the game, a back-shoulder pass from Bruce Gradkowski to Marvin Jones.
Jarrett Bush: C
Bush got the start and played an okay game. He played fairly good coverage, but was beaten a few times and missed a tackle with a bad attempt. Bush was aggressive and looked good coming on the corner blitz, but overall it was an average game for Bush.
Anthony Levine: A-
Levine saw snaps with the Packers' first team defense and did a solid job. He looked like a player that could not only make the roster, but contribute. The Packers' SS job is wide open and Levine may have made that position battle even more confusing with a strong performance.
Morgan Burnett: B
Morgan Burnett was quiet against the Bengals and didn't see much action. He was in good position to bring down Dalton on the quarterback's long scramble in the first quarter, but slipped trying to make the play.
M.D. Jennings: B-
Jennings had a decent game with his biggest contribution coming off a safety blitz where he absolutely destroyed Andy Dalton to start the second half. He also did a good job during the Packers' goal line stand, helping to make big tackles.
Jerron McMillian: B
McMillian's biggest positive so far is his potential. He looks as if he can be the guy to play alongside Morgan Burnett, but needs to bring his game together to make that happen. McMillian looked okay in coverage and did a good job around the ball. It wasn't a great game for him, but it wasn't bad either.
Sean Richardson: B
Richardson is stating a late claim for a roster spot with solid play. He continued play physically against the Bengals late in the game and showed good instincts to jump on a loose ball late with just over two minutes left in the game.
