Green Bay, WI - The "Smith Bros." sounds like some kind of a corny marketing phrase cooked up in public relations.
The difference is they delivered again Sunday in the Packers 27 - 16 win over the now 0 & 3 Denver Broncos.
Outside linebackers Preston Smith (left) and Za'Darius Smith (right) have decided when it's time to talk to reporters, they do it as a duo.
"P & Z."
"The Smith Bros."
Call 'em whatever you like.
Just remember their defense.
Against the Broncos, the brothers Smith combined for 5 quarterback sacks (3 for Preston, 2 for Za'Darius) and 8 combined tackles.
Preston Smith had a strip sack against Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco that set up a Packers touchdown drive from the Denver 5 yard line just before halftime.
Za'Darius Smith had a key sack on third down to end a Broncos drive.
After making big plays, the "Smith Bros." made it a point to showboat to the 78,078 fans inside Lambeau Field, to get the crowd going after a turnover or stop, similar to pro wrestlers in the WWF.
The Packers are off to a 3 & 0 start, and have their fans excited for the first time in two years.
Thursday night Green Bay will host the 1 & 2 Philadelphia Eagles.
