The Cincinnati Bengals defense are going to have their hands full trying to stop Aaron Rodgers and his Green Bay Packers offense. The Bengals come into today’s game as the underdog getting 3 points.

We think the odds makers are showing the Bengals too much respect. The Bengals haven’t face a team with the explosive offense that Rodgers and his packers have, Cincinnati is going to be tested in this game and it is a test they are sure to fail.

Rodgers threw for almost 500 yards last week. While the Bengals have the 6th ranked defense this year, that stat is only because the team hasn’t faced a team like the Packers yet this season. The defense is ranked high coming into the game, but they won’t be ranked this high once the game is over.

Stopping Aaron Rodgers isn’t going to be an easy task for the Bengals today. They are playing at home but that isn’t going to make a difference. One of the problems with the Bengals defense is their pass rush sucks.

The Bengals only have one guy that comes in ranked at 33 when it comes to sacks. If they can’t bring the pressure to Aaron Rodgers he will attack the Bengals secondary and pick them apart. Rodgers is too good of a quarterback to not get the job done, especially with the lack of a pass rush.

The Cincinnati Bengals are going to have problems trying to stop Rodgers and his Green Bay Packers.
