After big wins over the Steelers last week in Tecmo Super Bowl and in real life, the Bengals were hoping the momentum would carry over into Week 3 as they welcomed Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
Before the game, Cincinnati got some great news as they found out Giovani Bernard had made a full recovery from a previous injury and was ready to take the field.
Randall Cobb, who is well known in this region thanks to his time with the Kentucky Wildcats, was handling kickoff return duties for the Packers. The Bengals defense would keep him quiet for most of the day, however.
And speaking of the Bengals D — they wasted no time making some noise as a sack by Vontaze Burfict and a Rodgers interception put the offense immediately in the red zone.
This would setup an easy run into the end zone by “The Law Firm” BenJarvus Green-Ellis, giving the Bengals a quick 7-0 lead.
