Packers expand lead over the Bengals 30-14

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals defense is tired. The offense isn't helping and the Packers have finally warmed up, leading to a 16-point deficit.

The Bengals defense have gone from wearing down to worn out.

After a strong first half, the defense is reeling while the Packer are heating up. After holding Green Bay to only 100 yards of offense and one of seven on third downs, the Packers offense is moving the football with relative ease. Green Bay opened the second half with an 80-yard drive (thanks to 20 yards of penalties), scoring a touchdown to conclude the nine-play possession with a touchdown.

Following Cincinnati's 38-yard drive that ended with a punt early in the third quarter, their second-longest possession of the afternoon, the Packers drove 92 yards. The quick five-possession drive featured Johnthan Franklin's 51-yard run and a 30-yard Jordy Nelson reception, leading to a James Jones seven-yard touchdown.

The Packers have scored 30 unanswered points in the game, and moved 172 yards in the first two possessions to open the second half. Unless Cincinnati's offense stays on the field to give the Bengals defense some rest, this game is over.
