If you were to ask anyone which unit of the Green Bay Packers struggled the most through the first two weeks, the only answer you'd get is the secondary.
However, that certainly wasn't the case in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals. In fact, the secondary was the strongest unit for much of the first half.
The big winner in this game was cornerback Sam Shields, who completely shut down star receiver A.J. Green for the first two quarters. Even though Green finished the game with four receptions, 46 yards and a touchdown, Shields kept him in check for the majority of the game.
Even safeties M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian were making solid plays in the secondary. All in all, it was a promising performance for the Packers' defensive backfield.
