As Week 2 of the NFL Preseason rolls on, Saturday night was loaded with a handful of high-profile games. In comparison to Friday night’s games which were closely contested battles, last night showcased a few blowouts, including a 40-10 thrashing of the Broncos by Seattle and a 37-13 Jets win over the Jaguars.
One of the night’s biggest stars was Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers, who passed 10/12 for 134 yards, although somewhat surprisingly didn’t pick up a TD on the night. In fact, Rodgers has yet to hit the end zone this preseason, but his efficient passing and productive drives helped the Packers pick up their first win of the year with a 19-7 victory over the Rams. Rodgers wore his customized Nike Alpha Talon cleat, which is no longer available for purchase. However, the Vapor Talon Elite is a suitable alternative and can be customized on Nike iD for $190.
On the running side of things, Cincinnati’s rookie running back Giovani Bernard had a big start, finishing with 59 total yards in the Bengals’ 27-19 win over Tennessee. On seven carries, Bernard picked up 37 yards and a touchdown, and also managed to convert a short pass into a 22-yard gain. The rookie chose a Bengal-appropriate colorway of the Nike Alpha Pro Low TD, which is designed to be lightweight and supportive for speedy players like Bernard. Try them out today for $75.
Meanwhile, New York’s Mark Sanchez struggled in a pair of Nike cleats and Houston’s Matt Schaub had a great start in the Swoosh. Check out the gallery above for more shots and stick with Sneaker Report for continuing preseason coverage.
