Jordan Love has already built a strong connection with second-year wide receiver Romeo Doubs, and it was on full display in the Green Bay Packers' joint practice with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday.
The Bengals hosted the Packers for a practice ahead of their preseason game on Friday.
It gives both teams an opportunity to test themselves against another NFL opponent. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has regularly held joint practices during his time in Green Bay, and they will host the New England Patriots before their preseason game next week.
Wednesday's practice was an eventful one -- Elgton Jenkins was pulled from practice after getting involved in two scuffles. There were also some big plays, including one featuring the Love-to-Doubs connection.

We're going to see Love target Doubs often throughout the regular season. Green Bay's second-year receiver has become a top target for the new QB1 this summer, and Love looked his way again during Wednesday's practice with the Bengals.
Doubs gets open down the sideline and receives the perfect deep pass from Love. This would've certainly been good for six points in a real game.
It's one thing for Doubs to find success against the Packers defense during practices, but it's great to see him making big plays against another team.
With Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb gone, the Packers need Doubs and Christian Watson to lead the way for a young receiving corps. Watson has impressed all summer and is a big-play threat every time he plays, but Doubs could end up as Love's most reliable target.
Plays like this one will help Love and Doubs build confidence. Every rep matters as this new-look Packers offense prepares for the regular season.
