Current Records: Green Bay 3-1; Cincinnati 3-1
What to Know
The Green Bay Packers will take on the Cincinnati Bengals at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous games.
Green Bay netted a 27-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers was slinging it as he passed for two TDs and 248 yards on 36 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Rodgers ended up with a passer rating of 131.80.
Meanwhile, things were close when Cincinnati and the Jacksonville Jaguars clashed last Thursday, but the Bengals ultimately edged out the opposition 24-21. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the half to overcome a 14 to nothing deficit. Cincinnati’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of TE C.J. Uzomah, who caught five passes for two TDs and 95 yards, and QB Joe Burrow, who passed for two TDs and 348 yards on 32 attempts. That was the first 300+ yard effort for Burrow this season.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Green Bay going off at just a 3-point favorite. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
The wins brought both teams up to an identical 3-1. Green Bay is 2-0 after wins this season, the Bengals 1-1.
