After a poor showing in Week 1 of the NFL preseason, the NFC North continues to pile up the victories, as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 27-13 last night in running back Cedric Benson's first game against his former team. Co-hosts co-hosts Rourke Decker and Nate Koenig devoted a significant portion of the show yesterday to previewing this game. What did they take away from what they saw on the field? 
The Minnesota Vikings take on the San Diego Chargers at Mall of America Field at 7:00 p.m. CT, while the Chicago Bears visit the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants in the Meadowlands. Tomorrow evening the Detroit Lions square off against the Oakland Raiders in the Black Hole. We will get into all the match-ups as the Black and Blue Division puts on its dress rehearsal for the regular season.
Will Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder continue to improve his accuracy as he settles in the pocket? How much will their secondary be tested now that it's been confirmed quarterback Philip Rivers will be on the sidelines?
Can the Lions maintain their composure against a team they narrowly defeated in a comeback last season? Which one of the Lions' offensive weapons will step up as a safety valve for quarterback Matthew Stafford?
Which of the Bears' backup running backs will seize the day and secure a position on the third string? Will quarterback Jay Cutler and his wide receivers continue to dominate, or can the rest of the league figure them out?
