What to Look For: Bengals vs Packers – Week 3

1 of 4

With the offensives both teams possess, this game could end up being the type of shootout determined by who has the ball last. If ever there was a team against which the Bengals could not afford turnovers and their 84 yards of penalties, the Packers would be that team. If the Bengals can play a pretty clean game, they have a good shot at the Packers.

When the Packers Run the Ball:
It sounds like Lacey will be down this week with a concussion meaning James Starks should be the guy. James Starks had 123 yards last week – the Packers 1st 100 rusher in 40 games (January 9th, 2010 – Starks) – but that was against the 32nd-ranked Redskins defense. Don’t expect the same against a Bengals team giving up less than 63 yards per game in the rush.
Advantage: Bengals
