NFL Preseason Roundup

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams needed just one series to show he was in midseason form, helping the Packers pull away from the Titans for a 31-17 win on Thursday night. Adams pulled in a 48-yard pass from backup quarterback Brett Hundley down the left sideline, just beyond the reach of new Titans defensive back Malcolm Butler. Hundley started in place of Aaron Rodgers, who was one of many Packers starters to sit out. The backup showed glimpses of improvement under center, going 6 of 8 for 95 yards and an 8-yard score to running back Jamaal Williams on the drive after Tennessee’s score.

CINCINNATI (AP) – Andy Dalton made a solid debut in Cincinnati’s revamped offense, throwing for a pair of touchdowns as the Bengals beat the Chicago Bears 30-27 on Thursday night. The Bears rested most of their starters during a 17-16 loss to the Ravens in the Hall of Fame game, including quarterback Mitchell Trubisky . His preseason debut Thursday didn’t go very well. Trubisky was in for two series that netted minus-1 yard on eight plays. The Bears’ only first down on those series came on a penalty for roughing the quarterback, a late hit on Trubisky. He missed on a deep sideline pass to Kevin White on his opening throw and finished 2 of 4 for 4 yards.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Dubuque native Riley McCarron was out with the Patriots’ first-string return teams during New England’s 26-17 win over Washington Thursday night. McCarron returned a pair of kickoffs for a total of 40 yards, but did not get a chance to return any punts. He was eventually relieved in the kicking game by recent Patriots signee Braxton Berrios. McCarron was on the Patriots’ practice squad most of last season, but is hoping to make the 53-man roster in 2018.
