Packers vs. Bengals - 2017 Game Predictions from


 GAME PREDICTIONS - 2017 Week 3 

Green Bay Packers vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Name Record   Pick Prediction
Andrew 2-0 Green Bay Packers 28-10
It's hard to imagine a better team to meet when you need a momentum-building win than the Bengals. Their offensive line is one of the worst, the entire offense is disjointed and the defense has been terrible. Jordy Nelson looks good to go, but even if he isn't Aaron Rodgers and everyone else should have no issues moving the ball or scoring. The only worry is if the Bengals commit to the run more and cut Joe Mixon—who they have underused in a big way—against a run defense which can be had. Even then, though, the Packers are a good team facing a terrible one and should roll the Bengals.
Andy 1-1 Green Bay Packers 23-21
GThe Bengals offense gets back on track with three touchdowns against a banged-up Packers defense but Aaron Rodgers pulls out some late-game heroics for a last minute victory. 
Chris P 1-1 Green Bay Packers 34-20
Coming off a loss, at home, the Packers are pretty good. But they are banged up and this Bengals team is going to be desperate. Aaron Rodgers has never beaten Cincinnati, but that changes Sunday. He will prove to be the difference. 
Chris W 1-1 Green Bay Packers 27-20
Green Bay lets a bad Bengals team hang around but puts them away when it counts, despite their laundry list of injuries.
Cory 1-1 Green Bay Packers 21-16
The Packers are suffering through a litany of not just injuries, key injuries. This game will be closer than expected but look for Aaron Rodgers to make several plays with his feet in this one. 
David 1-1 Green Bay Packers 27-20
Analysis: Overthinking leads me to the Packers' injury bug, the Bengals’ feisty defensive front, and the prospect that elite NFL players have a propensity for embarrassing you on national television (totally possible with A.J. Green). But I’m through overthinking, because with two weeks of games in the books—and a thoroughly entertaining Rams/Niners game Thursday night, of all freaking things—I’ve come to the conclusion that I know nothing. And thus: Aaron Rodgers does enough to lead the Packers at home against Andy Dalton and the Bengals. Keep it simple, stupid. 
Elisha 2-0 Green Bay Packers 30-20
Injuries might keep this game close, but I think Green Bay will take care of business at home.
Jason 2-0 Green Bay Packers 28-21
The Bengals finally find the end zone but not often enough to beat the Packers at home.  The Green Bay offense finally looks in sync and the defense holds their own against a speedy Cincy passing game.  Aaron Rodgers joins a select list of quarterbacks to lead his team to victory against 31 other NFL teams and more importantly, the Packers get back in the win column heading into a short week.
Jersey Al 2-0 Green Bay Packers 24-16
As much as all this, "the Bengals are the perfect opponent for the Packers right now" talk makes me a bit queasy, there is no way I can imagine a home loss to the Bengals this week. The Bengals are as banged up as the Packers and the far less talented team, so no worries. I think.
Michelle 1-1 Green Bay Packers 21-10
If there’s anything that can get the Packers back on their feet, it has to be facing this sad squad, which still hasn’t scored a touchdown in 2017. No game is a gimme in this league, but the Packers need a team they can beat with backups in prominent spots, and the Bengals are one of the best candidates. 
Ross 2-0 Green Bay Packers 30-23
Despite Green Bay's injury problems, Cincinnati is struggling even more.  Eifert and Ross won't play and without them, the offense is AJ Green or nothing. Green Bay slogs through a close win. 
Zach 1-1 Green Bay Packers 28-17
A flurry of injuries (and I mean a lot of them) won't be enough to stop the Packers from beating the Bengals, especially in the confines of Lambeau Field. They'll establish a potent ground attack against the Bengals' porous run defense en route to a win.

Bengals will score against a Capers defense. Let's hope offense had enough balls to do the job!! Hopefully the defense proves me totally wrong!!! Any comments?

Allan Murphy's picture

Have to have shut out to call this a win .......

JDK52's picture

Actually, they only need to score more points than the Bengals to call it a win.

Really cool how that works.

Bearmeat's picture

Yeah, but your response was so perfect, it deserved to be said twice. ;)

Gman1976's picture

Packers 35-10! We'll finally see the offense score plenty & our young defensive players step up. Go Pack!

Since '61's picture

The Packers will not look as crisp as they should due to their injuries, but they will prevail against the Bengals. The Packers will open a lead and then give some back in garbage time making the final score look closer than the game will be.
Packers 33 - 19. Thanks, Since '61

Ok Tarynfor12, Here's how I see it. The line has now moved 2 1/2 pt's. It's now GB -7 1/2. There is no decision to make here. If I played it, I would have to take CINN. It looks to me, like whatever money bet on this game is on GB. Your GB -9 1/2 looks pretty good . I'm going to check the parlays. If I see GB -9 or -10, that will have to be my 3rd or 4th game. Wouldn't mind hitting a 12-1.

Tarynfor12's picture

Like I said, the money will come in on Cincy as there was no way the 9.5 was legit even with Eifert and Ross being out for Cincy as the Packers defense is defenseless by many when money is involved.
Can't wait to see the number on the Thursday night Chicago game after todays. : )
Good Luck
P.S. I haven't gone into the casinos for a few years, I have what you may recall as...runners.

Johnblood27's picture

Hey you two!

Get a room!

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

Hey Tarynfor12, I managed to get Cinn +8 1/2 on a Parlay, but what I really need to have is Oak tonight for a Good Week. Oak/Over would be even better. I'm not sure I'm the right way here. The more I look at it, the more I think I might be the wrong way. I think it's time I gave this up. As I said the other day, I really didn't like the whole board this week. Tells me it's time. Good Luck to you!! No Problem on the Casino's. We went last night. Not too Hot.

al bundy's picture

Cincy is a good team that is un tracked right now. Who knows what team shows up?

Andrew Lloyd Peth's picture

I suspect this will be the last Packer game I ever watch.

I'm a lifelong Packer fan. I take off from work each year to watch the NFL Draft. I travel from Denver to Green Bay each Summer to watch training camp. I have my share proudly displayed on the wall.

After this game, that's all over, if what I expect to happen, happens.

More players will join Martellus's protest.

So to all those with whom I've agreed or argued, I just want to thank you for being a great group of people. We all strove to set politics and other divisive issues aside, joining together to support our team. Even when Martellus thrust politics into the game, we commented and then got back to football as quickly as possible.

But I can't enjoy a game when I know the hate burning beneath those helmets is aimed squarely at people like me--people who honor our nation, those who gave their lives for it, and equal love for all races. Holding up a fist for racial power when our anthem plays? That's going too far.

I'll miss being a Packer fan, but I've had it.

Turophile's picture

God, wife, nation - you forgot Mom's apple pie.

Ya been watching too many soaps, drama queen. Is jus football.

Andrew Lloyd Peth's picture

No, it WAS jus' football. Now it's anti-American activism. Jeez, you'd think this one thing could have been left alone.

Whatever. You don't care, since you probably agree with the protests. Either way, I'm out after this game.

If anyone else wants to mock me, go ahead--I won't respond.

I'm out.

fastmoving's picture

no one will miss you.........just like the mighty smart guy with his cell phone post that is as anti american as it gets..............
go to the Pats!


special thanks to the Packers....Mark Murphy, D. Adams, A. Rodgers, M. Bennett, R. Cobb and most of the writer at CHTV.........together with all the sports teams and athlets around the country

dobber's picture

Actually, we will miss him. We always miss knowledgeable fans who love the Packers when they leave, regardless of their other stances or opinions. Regardless of whether they support player X or call for coach Y's head.

If this really is your last post, ALP, best wishes to you.

Bearmeat's picture

Agreed. ALP - don't let it get to you.

You can't control what other people think and in this country, free speech is (Thank God) protected. Not to get too political, but I respect Kaep for taking a stand for what he believes in. I vehemently disagree with the pig socks and the things he's said on his twitter account, but the kneeling? I disagree, but it's his right to say it.

Enforced patriotism is not patriotism at all. North Korea, the USSR, Nazi Germany and hell, ancient Babylon and Rome have taught us that.

PackEyedOptimist's picture

"Anti-American activism?" You mean a quiet--in fact wordless--act to draw attention to a problem? "Aimed squarely at people who gave their lives?"--the "protest" is about the fear of police that black people have to deal with; it has literally NOTHING to do with the military. Have you ever had a cop car pull you over? Were your first thoughts "I hope I don't get beaten or killed"? Those thoughts never occur to YOU, but they occur to thousands of people of color, and if I'm a 6'4" 250 pound black man (like NFL players) driving through MANY parts of the U.S., the fear is a very reasonable one. "Holding up a fist for racial power"--Wow, you are really being manipulated by the fear-mongering demagogues out there--Bennett was EXPRESSING SOLIDARITY WITH HIS BROTHER; it had/has nothing to do with "racial power." Finally, ALP, you lament that things are now political, yet this article and the comments had NOTHING about the "protest" until YOU brought it up.

dobber's picture

In the end, there is nothing MORE American than activism and protest.

Without it, we're nothing more than a passive, western European has been, or worse--a nation dictating how we recognize and appeal through the symbols of our freedom (EVERY aspect of our freedom) and declining into fascism.

NOT Exactly.

You oversimplify.

Protest and opinions are first amendment rights, correct. They should be defended as vigorously as any other of the foundations of our governing system.

The difference is when the protests are aimed at destroying the foundation. I draw the line there. That is not protected by the first amendment and is covered under treason and sedition laws, which anthem protests do not cross. There are many other opinions and movements which need to be addressed under the given laws which protect our union.

There are means to alter our foundation, if movements want to attempt to fundamentally change the system, follow the process or you are simply a disrespectful anarchist. These people need to be fully prosecuted.

I sure hope the Packers win today.

flackcatcher's picture

There will those who will blame you for speaking out. They ignore the fact that the vast majority of fans agree with you. (How do I know. TV ratings. The NFL main source of income) When an business 'hands waves' it customers away, bad things happen. What's ironic is the owners know, but are powerless to stop it. Even if most of the players disagree with few who knee, they are not going to move to stop it. For them, this is a way to get back at the owners and Goodell for winning at the table. This has nothing to do with you and me, we are locked out of this fight. But in the end, the NFL loses. Lose their fan base, and all that sweet TV money with it. (Where will TV and streaming revue go, to college football. Look at Fox's deal with the Big 10)

Thegreatreynoldo's picture

I don't have any problem with Martellus Bennett raising his fist in the air during the national anthem. The NFL introduces politics into the work place, they should expect some response. Yes, I do think the anthem is close enough to be considered politics.

I am more troubled by Michael Bennett raising his fist in the air after a sack in the game against SF. I assume that it was because SF is Kaepernick's old team, and not because the QB he sacked was white. I hope that it was just because it was Kaep's old team, but even that is troubling.

PackEyedOptimist's picture every time a black player sacks a white quarterback and celebrates, you will worry that the celebration of the sack is ACTUALLY celebrating the "beat down of a white man?" Please adjust your tinfoil hat.

Tarynfor12's picture

If it's only done after the sack of a white quarterback can you deny that's what it is.
If so, will you adjust your tinfoil hat?

flackcatcher's picture

I thought because it was an old rival, and the way Seattle plays. Michael Bennett is a showboat, a physically gifted player with a bit of a dubious rep inside the league. If were any one else, the hand gesture would be shrugged off. Interesting times...

marpag1's picture

My, that's all very dramatic.

We're all free, y'know? Watch, don't watch, Knock yourself out.

The Internet is the ultimate "next man up." If you leave, someone will slide right into your place and no one will bat an eyelash. Kind of like a little kid who threatens 'you'll miss me when I'm dead' ... but on the Internet no one ever does.

Since '61's picture

ALP - if you do leave the site I will miss your comments and participation. I understand how you feel as I have also been in the service, albeit a long time ago.

I don't agree with or condone the players protesting at their workplace but while it is ethically incorrect, as of today it is legally compliant and their employer is allowing it for now. I don't agree with their forum but I would fight again for their right to free speech and to express themselves, preferably outside the stadium and after receiving a legal permit to meet, march and protest.

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, President Trump has demonstrated his complete lack of understanding of the issue with his comments and he left the league and the owners with no choice but to support their players. The owners are not going to "fire" their players who are their meal tickets. If anything more players will participate in the protests to support their team mates who Trump has called to be fired. If Trump is going to participate he should demonstrate some leadership and help facilitate the parties to a peaceful and civil discourse. Instead he has united the players with the owners for one of the few times in sports history.

Getting back to you ALP, you have been an asset to this blog and you will be missed. I wish you the best but hope that you will be back.

Thanks, Since '61

Week 3. We won't know this team's identity yet. Yes we will ,it's Aaron Rodgers period. It has become crystal clear that MM, TT, Murphy will depend on AR to win , get the team to the playoffs, and save everyones job. Who on this team, besides AR is a game changer? No one, no Julio, no Reggie, no Von Miller. My prediction, they win 30-23 only because one player is better than the rest on both teams.

4thand1's picture

I thought about Jordy and he's close. Daniels is really good but he missed a game and Seattle's o-line is putred. CM was a game changer and lets hope he gets there again.

Handsback's picture

Cincy wins 24-21. You can't have unanimous agreement's bad luck! I'll be the scapegoat this week.

dobber's picture

I will help...

Bengals 27, Packers 13.

flackcatcher's picture

Great. Now I even more nervous....

Johnblood27's picture

Where in the hell have you been?

It sure took you long enough this week!

flackcatcher's picture

I get pretty numb after jumping out the back end of a C-130 a couple of times. Man, I'm way too old for this....

GeorgiaCheesehead's picture

TT and mark Murohy support ant play who wishes to express himself by NOT standing for the National anthem. Well isn't that a surprise. They are both spineless Whimps. The NFL is really disgusting and now the Packers organization Is following suit. Pretty bad! Yes you do have the right to NOT stand but the owners also have the right to fire your ass and that's what the packers front office should be portraying to the players IMHO!!

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

I'll offer my opinion on Not Standing for the National Anthem, only because it was brought up. I'm Against It!! It Makes Me Sick!! Having said that, I do believe that "A lot of Blacks", Not All, have a Legitimate Protest against being Profiled. The American Flag IS NOT the place to do it. I think there is just as much White Trash in this country, as Black Trash.

I lived through Viet Nam. A lot of guys Died for that Flag, in my opinion, For Nothing!!. The next time a Black decides to Protest the Flag, maybe he should think of the 450,000 soldiers who died in the Civil War, mostly White to free their ancestors from Slavery. That was the same Flag.

As stated, a lot of Blacks have a legitimate complaint, but the American Flag is not it. Start in Chicago. Try to get the FIBS straightened out. I think that will go a long way to solving this problem. JMO

cpabandit's picture

Packers will win, couldn't care less what the score is. But to offer another prediction, Ty Monty will rush for 153 yards!

The TKstinator's picture

I'll say 152.
