The Bengals are a decent team - touted by some as among the best in the AFC.

What worries me is that for the first time this season we DON'T face a team with a big time RB. That probably means emphasis is taken off stopping the run. I've seen the past couple of seasons games like that where relative nobody RBs have big games against us. Also, they throw to their TEs a lot, which always seems to be a problem for the Packers.

Also, their D is a LOT tougher than Washington's - although maybe not quite up to San Fran's.

I see this as a trap game. We should win, but it probably won't be easy.

I'll guess 31 - 24 Packers.

We're not as bad as we looked in the Niners game. MAYBE not as good as we looked against the Skins.

Should be a good test game.

Close game, but Pack goes 2-1.

I'll say 24-16.

AR: 3 more TDs.
Running game returns to its sputtering form.
Defense gives up under 275 yards and just one TD.

Thank God the Bengals don't have a real QB to take advantage of all the weapons the Bengals have on offense. Green, Sanu, Eifert, Gresham, Bernard and Green-Ellis. Gonna need good safety play to deal with their TEs.

The Bengals have looked pretty good so far this year. Dalton is a pretty good QB, but I wouldn't put him in my top 5 or anything like that. I could see this game as a struggle, but the Pack is the better team overall from what I have seen.They did a pretty good job getting through the Pittsburgh front line, so I hope protecting our QB is high on the priorities for the game plan.

My prediction Packers win 34-27

The last time I underrated Dalton he kicked the Badgers ass in Pasadena. The guy is not great, but he is decent, and he has tall quality receivers - often a problem for the Packers.

This is a "should win" game but not a team we will roll over. Should be a good competitive match up and should be fun to watch unless you are one of those fans that gets depressed when every win isn't easy.

He's a great QB in a "leadership" sense. He has the command of the offense and knows it and he's certainly not just a game manager. But as far as his arm strength, mechanics, accuracy etc, the dude just doesn't have it. Watched the first half of the Steelers-Bengals and the dude was just constantly overthrowing receivers. Nearly got one of them killed going over the middle because he couldn't get the ball down with the velocity needed.

TBH, I'm more worried about TEs in this matchup.

the OTs better bring their A-game.

I don't think we can afford another "lull" from the offense.

Do not underestimate The Bengals this year.

Their defense is one of the best in the AFC, if not the best, they gave one away on opening day against DA Bears, and are coming off an emotional win over The Steelers Monday night.

Packers once again get the advantage of playing a team coming off a short week, I'll take any advantage that is given.

Seems to me the stronger defensive teams are in the NFC, but this isn't The Bengals of even 5 years ago.

Rookie RB and The "law firm" Ben Jarvis Green Ellis make a pretty good rb tandem, Dalton has some weapons on the inside and outside.

Don't use The Steelers game as an example of what their offense can do.

I compare The Bengal/Steeler rivalry to The Packer/Bears, when those 2 teams play each other it's never pretty and usually turns into a slobber knocker.

I hope The Packers can come out firing on all cylinders and can put up points early.

I'm betting on this turning into a shootout.

I haven't been thoroughly impressed with the Bengals this season. I know it is early and kinks could still be getting worked out for each team but for awhile now, they have been crowned the ones to beat in the AFC. So far we have two samples, a loss against the Bears and a 20-10 win over the Steelers (I agree with the comparison of Bengals/Steelers to Packers/Bears).

While they do have the threat of of two tight ends, the only option outside of that is AJ Green (who is a damn monster). The Steelers had shown that he can be taken out of the game with multiple coverages. Chicago gambled and decided they were going to stick Tillman on him and Green ate him alive. I am hoping that the Packers do not leave him with single coverage because he will absolutely destroy any of our corners....destroy.

I don't think the Bengals run game is as much of a threat as it is being touted to be. Green-Ellis will get the Bengals a few yards here and there but never break the big one and Bernard is still a rookie. Bernard can break a big run at any time but so long as someone gets contact on him, he will go down.

Bengals defense will surely be tough. Not as tough as the 49ers though. We have Aaron Rodgers and Co so aside from the Bengals front, this defense isn't that scary. If the Packers can muster up a run game early (and not force it), we are going to see Cincinnati cave. That is where this Cincy defense is weak. If a team gets up on them or is beating them consistently, they can be easy to break.

I expect just that. Its not going to be a pretty game because I don't think our defense has the tools to stop this offense.

Packers take it 34-28.

I think the middle pressure by the Bengals defense will be countered well by Rodgers and the receivers playing the sidelines as well as any receiving group in the league. Not looking for much from the run game as usual. Defensively, keeping a lid on their tight ends and not letting Green have the big play is going to be where my blood pressure is elevated. I think we can maintain our good run defense and can bring more QB pressure without having to worry about the run threat like we have weeks one and two. I think this game comes down to the last minutes of the 4th quarter.

Well we were on a roll there. Sucks to be right again. Once we took the lead I thought we would keep it. I think there will be some changes from this game. Thank god we have a bye!

Losing James Starks hurt. Johnathan Franklin did good, but would have been better if he could have been backed up by Starks.
Losing Jermichael Finley hurts the offense big time. I wonder if any Finley haters will acknowledge that yet.
Losing Clay Matthews III didn't help things either.

Bottom line, Packers were outplayed and are simply not a contender.

@jasonjwilde Bakhtiari misses cut block at the most critical time. Johnson deflects pass intended for Jones. #Packers will lose 34-30.

If there were only 5:00 remaining after that bad INT by Rodgers, we win. Instead there were 15:00.

There's plenty we can learn from in this game.

Tough loss. O-line got crushed in the last drive causing all those tipped passes. Hopefully we can come out healthy after the bye and get our key players back.

Over reaction. The Packers are still a contender, as much as the Bengals, 49'ers, and even a few other hopefuls are. They just have to get healthy. They're not Super Bowl favorites, but so long as they make the playoffs and can be relatively healthy, they'll be contending. Just make it to the dance (playoffs), and then everyone is 0-0. Recent history has proved that several times.

I disagree. I still think the Packers will win 9, and maybe 10 games this season. I expect them to come back strong after the bye, so long as they start getting players healthy. Ten wins would be enough to win the division or get a wild card spot, imo.

That's my opinion, not a reaction, not an over reaction.

Just don't see the depth to overcome the injuries and the play execution is lacking big time. I also don't care for Rodgers throwing it deep all the time. This season, it hasn't worked in the several times I've noticed a wide open guy in the flat that would have netted a first down.

Simply put. The Packers aren't playing smart football. It appears they are playing arrogant football. Basically saying, we are the Packers, we are talented, give us the win.

My opinion, they are not contenders until some of these issues I mentioned are improved. The season is long. Got 13 more games. Anything can and will happen.


This opinion will most likely change vastly when players like Burnett, Matthews, Starks, Lacy, Bush, etc are healthier and the OL gets more games to gel.
