The Bengals are 3-1, but those wins have come against three teams that have a combined two wins so far this season.

Sunday brings a home game against the Packers, who are also 3-1 and tight end C.J. Uzomah knows that beating them will send a different message than last Thursday’s win over the Jaguars. Uzomah said on NFL Network that the game is a “huge opportunity for us” to show that the Bengals have taken a real step forward this year.

“We get this win, and we put the league on notice that we’re here,” Uzomah said. “This isn’t a 3-1 that just happens to be 3-1. At this point, it’s a 4-1 that just beat the Packers, who are on a hot streak, who are on a run and have one of the hottest quarterbacks to play the game. That’s what we’re after, that’s our goal, and that’s our mentality.”

Uzomah believes “everything helps in our favor playing at home,” but Aaron Rodgers will have something to say about how the league views the Bengals come the end of Sunday’s action.

    If you’re a contender, this is a game you should win.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    What if they’re both contenders in their respective conferences? Then what? Tie?

  2. Calm down guy you haven’t beat any good teams yet. I love the swagger in these guys, They look to be a lot better than last year because of Burrow.

  3. Green Bay’s opponents have a combined 3 wins. Vikings, Bears, Steelers, Jags is pretty comparable to Saints, Lions, 49ers, Steelers.

  4. The Bengals are 3-1, but those wins have come against three teams that have a combined two wins so far this season.

    Almost half the league right now has one or fewer wins so statistically speaking there is a good chance you’re going to be playing a bad team. You can only play the teams the league has scheduled for you.

    Who dey, go Bengals!

  5. I think these Bengals and Joe Burrow welcome the opportunity to compete with one of the best teams in the NFL the past two decades.I believe Burrow is up to the challenge, I hope the rest of the players on the team are as well. Joe is very good at reading a defense, IF the O line can give him 2.5 to 3 seconds to make a play. It will be a long day for Packers D, Geaux Joe Burrow, cut some cheese this Sunday, Limburger!

  6. I hate the Pack, bit they should win pretty easily. The Vikes only lost cause of a zillion penalties and Cook fumbling in Bengals territory on the game winning OT drive. Too much koolaid being consumed in OH these days.

    And the Steelers beat the Bills and the Bengals crushed the Steelers soooo…..

  8. It’s also an opportunity for this team to show that they’re still the same old Bengals.
