Tomorrow's Green Bay Packers pre-season contest with the Bengals will feature a local talent in Kewaunee High School graduate Colin Cochart. Currently third on Cincinnati's depth chart at tight end, Cochart needs to have a big game against the Packers.
He has yet to catch a ball in the pre-season and is stuck behind one of the top tight ends in the league in Jermaine Gresham and former Packer Donald Lee. Watch for number 81 (Cochart) in orange and black during tomorrow night's pre-season week 3 contest.
Thursday will mark the Packers' third game ever at Paul Brown Stadium, which opened in 2000. The prior meetings were the '06 preseason contest and a regular-season visit in 2005. The franchises have met just 11 times in the regular season, with the last game coming in 2009 at Lambeau Field. Over the past 13 seasons (1999-2011), the teams met just twice (2005 and 2009). The Bengals hold a 6-5-0 edge in the all-time regular-season series.
