GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers’ defensive performance on Friday could be defined as bend but don’t break.

Aaron Rodgers and Co. moved the ball well throughout the day. But, in the biggest segment of the practice day, the two-minute drills, the defense dominated.

In all three series, the offense took the ball at its 25-yard line with 1:40 on the clock, no timeouts and in need of a touchdown. When it was starters vs. starters, Rodgers moved the ball into the red zone, the big play being a deep shot to Aaron Jones for a gain of 28.

Short completions to Tyler Davis, Jones and AJ Dillon set up a fourth-and-5 pass to Sammy Watkins for a gain of 11 to the 14 against Shemar Jean-Charles. After that play, Rodgers rushed the offense to the line and clocked the ball with 12 seconds to go. On the next play, he spotted tight end Josiah Deguara in the end zone but Adrian Amos rushed in from the back of the end zone to make a leaping interception.

Up next was the No. 2 offense led by Jordan Love. That group wasn’t on the field long, though, with La’Darius Hamilton forcing a turnover that Tipa Galeai scooped up for a touchdown. More on that later.

Given a mulligan, Love managed one first down but safety Innis Gaines made a tremendous breakup to prevent what might have been a long touchdown to Samori Toure and Donte Vaughn broke up a fourth-and-2 pass intended for Romeo Doubs.
