Packers-Bengals: Three keys

  • Print

Green Movement Safety Morgan Burnett is out again and the Packers will face yet another very good wide receiver with a thin secondary.  Cincinnati's A.J. Green is fast becoming one of the NFL's elite though he's not an over-the-middle guy like Anquan Boldin.  So look for Green to attack the edge while Cincy uses two pass catching tight ends over the middle.

Pressuring Dalton Finally, the Packers face a pocket passer.  The Bengals aren't an up-tempo team and they don't run much no-huddle.  That being said here's a good spot for the Packers to apply some pressure.

Up front Once again, a lot of focus will be on the offensive line.  Cincinnati enters Week 3 with only two sacks but protection may not be the issue.  The real question will be can the offensive line open holes for James Starks?  The Bengals are sixth in run defense, though they weren't tested by Pittsburgh last week.  Don't look for a repeat performance from Starks needs to at least be effective.

Prediction Packers 34, Bengals 31
