that DL is scary stuff.

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 think we lose a close one here guys. I have a lot of respect for their D. The key to this game for me: Us getting turnovers

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.
