The Green Bay Packers' starting defense played 12 full series in the preseason.

Against Arizona (three possessions), St. Louis (four possessions) and Seattle (five possessions) combined, coordinator Dom Capers' starters gave up 10 points: a 31-yard touchdown pass to the Cardinals and a 27-yard field goal to the Seahawks.
