Packers backup QBs following Aaron Rodgers' lead

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Aaron Rodgers isn't the only quarterback playing well for the Green Bay Packers. His backups are shining, too, which could lead to some intriguing roster decisions with the start of the regular season three weeks away.

And that's just the way coach Mike McCarthy wants it.

A day after his quarterbacks played well again in the team's second consecutive preseason victory, this time a 21-17 triumph at Washington, the coach explained Sunday that his goal is for his young signal-callers to take after Rodgers, the two-time NFL MVP.
