Bengals vs Packers: Carson Palmer Impressive | NFL Player Rankings
Carson Palmer has Four Touchdowns
I expected to see the Bengals fold up and lose this game as they played a team that should go to the playoffs. Unfortunately, for the Packers, Carson Palmer and the Bengals were up to the task of playing good football.
Palmer spread the ball around and threw one touchdown to all three of his top receivers. Chad Ochocinco made the final touchdown catch and delivered on his promise to do the Lambeau leap.
The Bengals quarterback also added a touchdown run of his own, bringing his touchdown total for four on the day.
Cedric Benson Runs Well Again
Last week Cedric Benson had a nice running day against the Broncos and this week he was strong again. In this contest, he had 29 rushes for 141 yards rushing. Expect the Bengals to continue giving Benson the ball twenty plus times a week.
Benson is clearly the feature back on the Bengals, and it looks like he is now the runner we expected to see coming out of Texas.
This running back and the Bengals offense is in line for a very successful fantasy season.
Rodgers Sacked Six Times
Aaron Rodgers was sacked six times (5 by Antwan Odom) and if the Packers are going to make the playoffs, they need better protection. Not only did Rodgers get beat up but top receiver Greg Jennings didn’t get a reception.
Next week the Packers should get back on track against the Rams. Hopefully, fantasy owners will be happy in that game.
