12. Quiet night for Tucker Kraft

Tucker Kraft made a quiet start to the preseason, with one reception for four yards. He lost a contested catch that led to an interception, a play he probably should have made. But it can take time for tight ends to get up to speed, and Kraft has looked good at camp.

11. Sean Clifford shows promise despite interceptions

Outside of two interceptions, Sean Clifford looked good. He completed 20 of 26 passes for 208 yards, one touchdown, and the two picks. He wasn't helped on either interception. Sean Rhyan gave up a pressure on the first, hurrying Clifford. Then Kraft should've made a contested catch but instead allowed it to be picked.

But Clifford made a few spectacular throws. He did his best Aaron Rodgers impression on one play, rolling to his left and throwing a perfect pass on the move to Samori Toure.

10. Emanuel Wilson enters RB3 competition

Emanuel Wilson reminded the Packers that he deserves to be in the RB3 conversation, rushing for 111 yards and two touchdowns on only six carries. He made one of the plays of the night with an 80-yard touchdown run. Wilson dominated.

9. Jonathan Owens: Starter

Based on snaps at practice and in this game, Jonathan Owens appears to be winning the competition for a starting job at safety alongside Darnell Savage. He has looked good all summer, and it's seemingly his job to lose entering the final two weeks of preseason.
