Defensive Line Could Get a Test Tonight

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers think they might have the NFL's best defensive line. Now they need to prove it against a worthy opponent.

And that might not happen again this week.

After a dominant performance against an injury-depleted Seattle offense last weekend, the Packers probably won't get a true test from the banged-up Jacksonville Jaguars in tonight's preseason game at Lambeau Field.

But defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins doesn't want to hear the Packers' defensive success in the preseason doesn't really count because it hasn't come against top competition.

He says he just wants people to know the Packer defense is for real, not just some kind of fluke.

The Packers had seven sacks and forced six turnovers against Seattle, but the Seahawks were playing without their starting quarterback and both tackles.

Now the Packers will face a Jaguars offensive line that also is missing two starters.
