X’s & O’s (PACKERS VS. BENGALS)
The Bengals starting offense hadn’t scored an offensive touchdown in their first 2 games so OF COURSE they scored an easy TD on their first possession to start the game against the Packers defense.
Kevin King had his lumps against AJ Green, but Green is a top 5 WR in the league and King is a rookie CB - he passed his first test.
Aaron Rodgers turned the ball over 2 times again...so uncharacteristic, especially at home
The Packers offense, to include obviously Aaron Rodgers, played GREAT in the 2nd half comeback win.
Get this: the overtime win was the FIRST of Aaron Rodgers CAREER as a starting QB(!) he had been 0-7. His win over the bengals also meant that he has beaten every team in the league in his career.
X’s & O’s (PACKERS VS. BEARS)
The Packers’ offensive line was down to their 3rd string tackles...unreal amount of injuries to one position this early in the year!
With that said, the patchwork offensive line played great
Aaron Jones (3rd string RB) looked great in what little we saw - he looked like he was shot out of a cannon when he came out of the backfield.
5 more injuries occurred during the game:
Ty Montgomery (ribs)
Joe Thomas ILB (ankle)
Martinez ILB (possible concussion, came back in game)
Jamal Williams RB (knee)
Davante Adams (Decapitated!) - The fact that Danny Trevathan wasn’t ejected was stunning - that hit on Adams was lethal and could have ended Adam’s career.
Also: the Bears are TERRIBLE
Outside of Football stuff:
League wide anthem protests (kneeling, locking arms, etc of players and owners) - general discussion
Trump fanning the flames by tweeting ridiculous comments about players who kneel
Owners locking arms with players due to Trump’s comments (looks like branding/posturing and nothing more by the owners)
