GREEN BAY, WI - AUGUST 31: Aaron Jones #33 of the Green Bay Packers celebrates after scoring a touchdown in the second quarter against the Los Angeles Rams during a preseason game at Lambeau Field on August 31, 2017 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. (Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty Images)

No Aaron Rodgers, no Jared Goff, but there were strong quarterback results by Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley, seeing the end zone twice as Hundley led the Packers to a 24-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

Rookie RB Aaron Jones found the end zone on the ground and through the air as two Rams turnovers couldn’t be overcome in the loss. With that, we give you our PFF exclusive takeaways from the contest for each team.

Top 5 grades

CB Kevin Peterson, 83.4 overall grade

DT Tyrunn Walker, 80.9 overall grade

S John Johnson, 79.5 overall grade

DE Louis Trinca-Pasat, 78.0 overall grade

HB Justin Davis, 75.0 overall grade

Performances of Note:

HB Justin Davis, 75.0 overall grade

Davis broke two tackles for the second straight week to close out the preseason. Topping 50 yards on 17 carries was as noteworthy as a skill position performance got in this match between the Packers and the Rams.

QB Dan Orlovsky, 32.5 overall grade

Orlovsky played the entire game, giving Jared Goff and Sean Mannion the night off, and did little to apply any pressure. A pair of interceptions were paired with some wild inaccuracy with Orlovsky completing only one of his five passes targeted 10 or more yards downfield.

DE Louis Trinca-Pasat, 78.0 overall grade

Trinca-Pasat matched his production through the first three weeks of preseason in one night by racking up 3 pressures (all hurries) against the Packers. Trinca-Pasat’s fourth pressure, a hit on Brett Hundley, was nullified by his own roughing the passer penalty.

OLB Andy Mulumba, 73.9 overall grade

On his return to Lambeau Field, former Packers’ OLB Mulumba racked up his second sack of the preseason and finished third on the defense with 3 stops, bettered by only S Marqui Christian and LB Nicholas Grigsby.

Top 5 grades

CB Donatello Brown, 84.6 overall grade

S Josh Jones, 84.4 overall grade

DE Christian Ringo, 83.9 overall grade

CB Lenzy Pipkins, 83.4 overall grade

C Justin McCray, 82.4 overall grade

Performances of Note:

QB Brett Hundley, 40.1 overall grade

Hundley compounded a poor preseason with an erratic showing against the Rams. His touchdown pass to Aaron Jones forced him to roll into the end zone and Hundley completed none of his four pass attempts aimed 10 or more yards down the field.

C Justin McCray, 82.4 overall grade

McCray has featured at C (67 snaps) and RG (70 snaps) to this point in preseason but played all 66 snaps Thursday night at C, catching the eye with some powerful run-blocking.

CB Donatello Brown, 84.6 overall grade

Brown wrapped up an impressive preseason by facing down 7 targets, surrendering only 3 completions while collecting his first interception and a pass defense. For the preseason Brown allowed 7 completions on 19 targets for 57 yards, allowing a passer rating of 23.4 on passes into his coverage over the last month.

DE Christian Ringo, 83.9 overall grade

Ringo finishes his third preseason with 11 total pressures (4 hits, 7 hurries), topping the production of his first two preseasons combined. He racked up four hurries Thursday night, bettered only by Geneo Grissom on the final night of preseason.
