Packers' defense looking forward to facing Bengals' offense

The Cincinnati Bengals will be facing off against the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin on Sunday at 4:25 PM EST.

It may be hard to believe, but there was actually some good news when it came to the walking wounded of the Green Bay Packers. At 0-2, the Bengals' playoff hopes would be effectively over with a third straight loss to start the year. Cincinnati looks awful right now and while they are bound to break out of their touchdown drought I don't see them being able to keep this one close through four quarters. League-wide that number was 78 percent.

According to NBCSN's Ross Tucker, Jean Francois will get paid double by the Packers for every week he's on the roster moving forward. "I think it shows you his competitiveness and just the way he attacks the game of football". Then, in 2014, the Manhattan, Kansas native made the Pro Bowl, bringing down 98 receptions for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns.

The Bengals can't stay out of the end zone forever but I can't see them putting up more than 17 points without the Packers help, turnovers for a short field or a special teams mistake. The Bengals are putting up just 276.5 yards per game, including only 79.5 yards per game on the ground.

When the Packers lose, it's usually because they dig themselves big holes early. Marvin Lewis is 3-0 vs GB. The Packers on the other hand are 1-1 after their loss to the Falcons last week 32-23. Green Bay is averaging just 20 points per game despite averaging 398.5 yards per contest. And a quartet of players - starting wideout Jordy Nelson (quadricep), rookie nose tackle Montravius Adams (foot), reserve outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (concussion) and starting right guard Jahri Evans (groin), practiced all week. This game may not seem like much, but it's essential the Packers win this game to get back on track and avoid falling to 1-2.

From 2011 through 2015 this was one of the NFL's most consistent franchises making the post season in each of those years, but they have not won a playoff game since 1991!

One of those guys is second year wideout Geronimo Allison, who had a pseudo-breakout in the last two regular season games of 2016.

After the Packers' Sunday night loss, numerous fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on what they think could help the former MVP.
