However, the top performances of this game go to the backups.

This week’s best player performances are the following:

Gilbert keeps getting better with each game. Last week, he tallied several pressures and one quarterback hit. Against the Steelers, Gilbert produced three tackles, three QB hits, 2.5 sacks, and one forced fumble in limited playing time. It’s safe to say Gilbert will make the team as the top edge rusher behind Nick Perry and Clay Matthews, but his camp and preseason play warrants extended playing time come the regular season]]>

So when Aaron Rodgers jogged onto the field with the first-team offense on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, even for a meaningless preseason drive, the more than 74,000 fans in attendance showered the Green Bay Packers quarterback in cheers.

The moment was well-received and appreciated by Rodgers, who was desperate to make his return to Lambeau Field after missing the final five games at home to finish last season]]>

The 51-34 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers featured the return of Aaron Rodgers and most of the Packers starters on offense. Though they only played for one series, fans were more than happy to see Rodgers finally throwing footballs around after last season. The game also featured more splashy plays from a ton of rookies and a defense that, at times, looked like the ferocious unit fans would love to see]]>

<![CDATA[Sharp in brief action]]> Rodgers completed two of four passes for 35 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Packers' 51-34 preseason win over the Steelers on Thursday. He also rushed once for five yards.

While Rodgers' appearance was predictably brief, it served its purpose -- the multi-time Pro Bowler led a crisp 40-yard scoring drive that he capped off with an eight-yard touchdown to prize offseason acquisition Jimmy Graham. Rodgers connected with Davante Adams for 27 yards on his other completion earlier in the series, giving him a pair of successful hookups with a pair of pass catchers that could well be his most targeted in the coming season. Having broken the preseason ice, Rodgers will look forward to more extensive reps against the Raiders a week from Friday in what should serve as the Packers' "dress rehearsal" game.

<![CDATA[4 takeaways from Packers' big preseason win over Steelers]]>
With a five-play, 40-yard drive capped off by an eight-yard touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham, Aaron Rodgers’ preseason snaps are likely over in 2018. But he looked good against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night at Lambeau Field, and the one minute and 33 seconds of clock the offense ate up under Rodgers’ direction gave us a sneak preview of just how lethal this offense can be in the 2018 season.

The Packers continued the momentum forward, and when the game clock finally ticked down to zero, the Packers had put up an impressive 51 points, the most in a preseason game since 2010.]]>

He was targeted 265 times in that span, catching 170 of them for 2048 yards and 16 touchdowns.
