The Bengals needed a big game from cornerback Leon Hall to have any hope of slowing down Aaron Rodgers and the No. 1 Green Bay Packers offense, and they got more than they could have expected from the eighth-year Pro Bower.

He was matched-up against he Packers’ No. 1 receiver, Randall Cobb, who plays almost exclusively (95% of the time) from the slot, and has only built on last year’s success, when he posted a league-leading 2.35 Yards Per Route Run, according to Pro Football Focus.  Through two weeks this year he’s posted a league-best 3.06 YPPR while catching 94% of the 17 passes thrown to him in the slot for all of his 236 yards.
