Packers look to get back on winning track against Bengals

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Green Bay Packers taking on an unfamiliar AFC North Opponent in week 3 of the season in the Cincinnati Bengals. A win against the Bengals would break up a three game losing streak the Packers have going against the team and would be their first since the 1998 season. The win would also help Aaron Rodgers become the 7th quarterback ever to have beat 31 NFL teams.

Wide Receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson are nursing injuries, meaning the Packers may look to Jeff Janis and Trevor Davis to help pick up the slack. Ty Montgomery can also help balance out the offense. The second year running back is leading the NFL in snaps with his 124 heading for Sunday’s matchup.

The Packers opening a season with a 1-1 record for the 5th time in 6 years will be taking on a 0-3 Bengals team that has yet to score a touchdown this season.Bengals QB Andy Dalton has completed just 54.5 percent of his passes for 394 yards and 4 interceptions. A Clay Matthews sack on Dalton would push him to 75 career sacks and set a new franchise record, currently held by Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (74.5)
