Offenses should be firing on all cylinders in Ohio today as the 1-1 Cincinnati Bengals play host to the equally 1-1 Green Bay Packers in this week three 2013 NFL football matchup. Aaron Rodgers and the league’s most prolific offense to start the season will now be facing off against one of the league’s most stingiest defenses backed by an offense that is showing signs of improvement after a slow start.

The Packers may have a lost on their record early on this season, but right now no defense in the league is looking forward to facing them. Last week Aaron Rodgers was a quarterback on a mission as he threw for a career best 480 yards and four touchdowns on 34 of 42 passing. He became the only the second quarterback in the history of the NFL, joining Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle, to pass for four TDs and 480 yards without tossing a single interception.
While Rodgers and his receiving corps made Swiss cheese of the Redskins secondary last week, they also had their way with the Redskins on the ground. James Starks became the first Green Bay running back to crack 100 yards rushing in a game in nearly three years with 132 yards and a touchdown. Per the Packers, they became the first team in NFL history to throw for 450 yards and run for 125 yards in the same game.
The Bengals defense is well suited to go up against an offense that has average 482.5 yards per game through its first two games of the season. They have given up only 300.5 yards per game through two, seventh best in the league, and are particularly hard to score against at home having surrendered 20 or fewer points in five consecutive games. Last Monday night they held the Steelers to only 10 points.
How quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green respond to Green Bay’s offense is a big question mark. The Bengals offense has been inconsistent through two games, showing signs of brilliance at times and struggling at others. Green has been a bright spot having averaged 100 yards a game thus far, and was especially effective in primetime on Monday night.
Working in the Bengals favor tonight is they have beaten Green Bay the last two times they have faced them. In the last meeting four years ago, Rodgers was sacked a total of six times versus only one touchdown pass. However, this is a different Packers team with a more solid offensive line. I expect Green Bay’s offense to be slowed somewhat by the Bengals, but not enough to lose the game.
