The Green Bay Packers look to make it four wins-in-a-row against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon as two 3 -1 teams square off at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Bengals are tied for the top spot with the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns in the American Conference North. Looking to keep the momentum going after a thrilling 24-21 win over Jacksonville, the Bengals will depend on second-year quarterback Joe Burrow to have a big game.
The Packers are coming off a hard-fought 27-17 win over the Pittsburg Steelers last Sunday, but a came with a price. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers may have to win a shootout against Burrow, as Green Bay's sixth-ranked defense will be without all-pro cornerback Jaire Alexander from a shoulder injury and linebacker Za'Darius Smith who has been on the injured reserve list after back surgery.
Free Agent Linebackers Jaylon Smith was signed by the Packers this week, but it is unlikely that he will suit up and help the defense this Sunday.
The kickoff of the Packer-Bengal game is set for noon from Paul Brown Stadium in Cinncinati.
