2013 Week 3 NFL Preview

NFL-LogoI’m back in the saddle after a week of paradise.  Basically my wife surprised me with a pre-40th birthday in Mexico’s Mayan Riviera outside of Cancun all of last week.  If that wasn’t enough, she invited some college buds of mine and their wives to hang with us.  As you could tell, I had no bandwidth to preview last week’s game.  Ah, such great times, but anyway…

Game of the Week

Green Bay Packers at Cincinnati Bengals.  I call this matchup the “Missouri Game” because Cincinnati has to show me if it’s truly for real or not.  Sure there was the nice Monday night win over my Steelers, and frankly if it were not for some bonehead plays late in the Chicago game the Bengals would be 2-0.  However if Cincy thinks it is the Super Bowl contender many (including yours’ truly) made it out to be, it has to play well against another contender in Green Bay.  This is an obvious battle of strength (Packers’ O) vs. strength (Bengals’ D).  I think the Bengals’ nasty defense will have the edge over Rodgers and the Packers at home.  Bengals 24, Packers 20.

  1. The question here is, “Were the Bengals that good or the Steelers that bad?” IMHO, Pittsburgh looked terrible on both offense and defense. Although Cincy has surpassed the Steelers in the AFC North, I don’t believe they’re better than the Packers. GB 28, CIN 20.
