Packers vs Bengals Preview

Following five straight losing seasons and a 2020 campaign marred by a knee injury to rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, the Bengals might be the league’s most surprising 3-1 team.

In Week 4, they edged the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-21 at home behind 348 passing yards and a pair of touchdown throws from Burrow, who connected on 25 of 32 attempts.

Cincinnati trailed 14-0 at the midway break and 21-14 heading into the fourth quarter.

“There’s no panic in the locker room,” Burrow said, according to Bengals.com. “We knew we didn’t play great in the first half. It is what it is. But we had all the faith in the world that we were going to come out and play well in the second half.”

C.J. Uzomah reeled in both of Burrow’s touchdown passes, the second of which went 31 yards and tied the game with nine minutes to play. The tight end finished the contest with 5 grabs for 95 yards. The Jaguars punted on their ensuing possession, then Burrow helmed a five-and-a-half-minute drive that resulted in a 35-yard Evan McPherson field goal with no time on the clock.

“[Uzomah] works really, really hard,” Burrow said, per Bengals.com, “and he’s coming off an injury too — a lot of people forget that. He put in a lot of hard work for that as well, and he works hard for his opportunities.”

The Packers are also off to a 3-1 start, albeit a less surprising one. They claimed their third consecutive victory a week ago behind a balanced attack that saw 33 rushes and 36 Aaron Rodgers passes.

The star QB connected on 20 of his tosses for 249 yards and a pair of touchdowns, adding another score on the ground.

“I thought that was a mature win,” Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said, according to The Associated Press. “Just our whole mentality all week, it was very workmanlike. Guys came in very focused. I felt the energy was great.”

Both of Rodgers’ touchdowns passes landed in the hands of wideout Randall Cobb, who came up with 5 total grabs for a team-high 69 receiving yards.

Cobb and Rodgers were teammates in Green Bay for eight years before the receiver departed for the Dallas Cowboys in 2019. He spent the 2020 season with the Houston Texans before the Packers, with encouragement from Rodgers, traded for him over the offseason.

“He understands how I move, so whenever I’m getting ready to break on my route, he knows,” Cobb said, per AP. “It’s muscle memory. It’s been a couple of years, but it’s kind of like when you get back around your friends and you remember things that you hadn’t even thought about in so long. It’s kind of that connection that we have.”
