Final scores don't always tell the story in preseason football games, but what underlies them can give evidence to who might win position battles and roster spots in September.

The Packers' 17-11 win over the Cleveland Browns did just that.

Green Bay's ability to run the football netted more than 150 yards on 40 carries, going exactly with Mike McCarthy's plan.

"We wanted to run the football and the other part, too, stopping the run. This is the critical work that you have to have in the preseason. From an attempts standpoint, we definitely hit the target there."

Additionally, Green Bay produced two safeties in the 4th quarter to help preserve the win.

Follow our Second Screen review below and watch our postgame review above with Jeff Falconio and Jay Sorgi.

Pregame

Yes, the paint works. Hopefully for the Packers' sake, their game is working as they open the preseason against the Cleveland Browns.

They would have started that preseason against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, but the faulty paint job at Hall of Fame Stadium rendered playing there dangerous, so the game was halted.

It means the first chance for many Packers rookies and free agents to shine, and make their presence known in the fight for roster jobs, tonight.

Wayne Larrivee outlines guys to watch for tonight, and who needs to prove their worth this evening.
