The Cincinnati Bengals are going to score a touchdown at Lambeau Field this week. This might sound crazy, but I actually believe they will score several. Lunacy! The Bengals are an obvious mess so far, having scored nary a touchdown in two games and punting aside offensive coordinator Ken Zampese for quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor last week. However, this isn’t a terrible offense. Quarterback Andy Dalton, for all we can say about him, is actually competent, wide receiver A.J. Green is among the best in the game and hopefully this is the week rookie running back Joe Mixon -- or someone in the backfield -- gets a real chance.
The Packers beat the struggling offense that is the Seahawks in Week 1 and then watched Matt Ryan and the excellent Falcons move up and down and up and down the field on them last Sunday night. The truth is the Bengals aren’t much to look at so far, but as ESPN’s Bill Barnwell notes, it’s darn tough to get into the red zone that often and fail to come away with touchdowns. In fact, it would be historic.
