With a record of 1-1, the Green Bay Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks 17-8 and then was defeated by the Atlanta Falcons, 34-23. Now the Packers face off against the Cincinnati Bengals, a game that promises to be interesting because while one team struggles with a weak offense, the other struggles with a weak defense. Green Bay is also looking to get back on track after their defeat at the hands of the Falcons and are seeking to once again become NFC contenders. Since it's still early in the season, the Packers still have a chance to get back on track if they can solve their on the field problems.

Packers face an uncommon opponent

The Winona Daily reported that the Green Bay Packers are facing an uncommon opponent in the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cincinnati lost its first two games of the season and is looking to win this week as they come to play at Lambeau Field. The Bengals have a chance to win because of injuries to Green Bay players like defensive lineman Mike Daniels. Wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are also injured, as are offensive tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga. Edge rusher Nick Perry also has a hand injury, but it is not clear whether or not he will play. The Bengals new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor makes his debut as the team let go quarterback Ken Zampese after a 13-9 loss to the Texans. Currently, the Bengals are in a bad position because they are the first team since 1939 to play two home games without scoring a touchdown.

Packers reported that there would be certain performances to watch on the field when the team plays.

The team will be adjusting to multiple injuries. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga may come back after suffering from a bum ankle, while left tackle David Bakhtiari hasn't practiced this week and isn't expected to return. Aaron Rodgers will be looking for a win against the Bengals, something he hasn't achieved against 31 NFL teams. The Packers need to win this game because the Detroit Lions will play the Atlanta Falcons, two teams that have both won all their games, and Detroit is leading the NFC North right now. A loss would put the Packers two games behind Detroit.

Clay Matthews attempts record for sacks

The Wiscon State Journal reported that Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews is close to breaking Green Bay's record for the number of sacks. The original record was held by Reggie White, who had 68.5 career sacks during the five years he played for Green Bay. The NFL established sacks as an official NFL statistic in 1982. The current record is held by defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila who achieved 74.5 sacks from 2000 to 2008. Matthews joined the Packers in 2009, and he says that he hasn't really given much thought to the idea that he is close to breaking the record.
