Through four weeks, both Green Bay and Cincinnati sit at 3-1 and atop their respective divisions, but both have taken different paths to get there.
After getting outscored 38-3 in Week 1, Aaron Rodgers offered assurances that the Packers would right the ship and they have done so resoundingly, winning their past three games.
Cincinnati, meanwhile, has been far less dominant, needing walk-off field goals in Weeks 1 and 4 to get to this point.
Neither team’s offense has been prolific — the Bengals rank 20th in points scored and 22nd in yards while Green Bay is 14th and 25th, respectively, in those categories. Joe Burrow has been solid so far this season, reestablishing a connection with former LSU teammate JaMarr Chase, who leads all rookie receivers in yards, yards per game and touchdowns.
Beyond Chase’s success, the Bengals also are doing well running the ball as two-time 1,000-yard rusher Joe Mixon currently sits third in the NFL in both rushing yards and rushing yards per game.
Green Bay has a similarly balanced offense, with running back Aaron Jones having success both as a rusher and a receiver out of the backfield, and Davante Adams has proven to be one of Aaron Rodgers’ top targets and one of the league’s top receivers.
Here’s all the information you need to catch this Week 5 matchup between two divsion leaders.
