It’s always a fun time when these two teams meet on the field.
Whether it’s long pick-sixes, long fumble recoveries, or fans running on the field and stealing the ball away from Brett Favre, the Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers share some wild memories.
The Packers return to Paul Brown Stadium eight years removed from a game that still haunts quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The jeopardy host who also throws a mean nine-ball did get his revenge four years later in Lambeau Field, but it’s the orange and black jerseys that seem to throw Rodgers in a flux every time. In three career games vs. Cincinnati, Rodgers has been sacked 16 times and has a passer rating of 83.3. His career rating is 103.9.
Sacks are the new sensation for the Bengals. After recording just 17 of them last season, they have 11 through four games this year. Trey Hendrickson, D.J. Reader and B.J. Hill will look to feast against an offensive line that is down multiple starters. The trio has 6.5 combined sacks thus far.
It’s Cincinnati’s offense that needs to play their best though. Rodgers will surely do Rodgers things and put the pressure on Joe Burrow to respond. Is this the week we see Joey Franchise truly unleashed for four-straight quarters?
