89– Entering Sunday’s games, the Packers were No. 1 in the NFL in yards-after-catch, but the Bengals defenders were able to tackle at the point of the catch Sunday, limiting Green Bay to just 89 YAC

36: A.J. Green has been targeted 36 times this year, twice as many as the next players, which are Mohamed Sanu and Jermaine Gresham with 18 apiece.

64.5:  Aaron Rodgers’ 64.5 passer rating was his lowest in a complete game since Week 8 of 2010 against the Jets (59.7)

103– Rookie running back Jonathan Franklin’s 103-yard game marked the first time in 12 games the Bengals have allowed a 100-yard rusher

6– After the Bengals scored on their first 2 possessions, the Packers accounted for 6-straight scores on Sunday

11– During the three-year career of quarterback Andy Dalton, Sunday was the 11 time he’s had a 100+ passer rating, and the Bengals are 9-2 when that happens.

29: The first three opponents (Bears, Steelers, Packers) of the Bengals had a combined 29 wins last year.
