They're playing Jones at inside LB, but Evans as deep S.
This group of defensive linemen is not holding the line of scrimmage. There's a lot of players at different levels and it's causing some big holes to open.
There's no resistance in the middle of the field.
Dial and Jean Francois are in the middle right now. Martinez and Jones at ILB.
That's a blown coverage, obviously. Part of the risk of playing two rookies. I have a feeling Jones was supposed to cover that.
I'm waiting to see the replay so I can figure out what went wrong there. Both King and Jones went with the crosser and no one went with the back. Obviously, a screwup in assignment.
Andy Dalton is 9 of 10 for 97 yards and 2 touchdowns, 146.7 rating.
Rodgers is 4 of 6 for 13 yards and a TD, 109.7 rating.
So far, it is. You have to like what they're doing with their backs. They're using them as receivers, spreading out the Packers with the receivers and then dumping the ball off to the backs.
A flea-flicker? I haven't seen one of those in a long time. But there's a flag on the play.
It's holding on the Bengals. Rodgers to Montgomery to Rodgers to Adams for a 41-yard completion.
I think Nelson was the No. 1 option, but the safety picked him up on the post route and Adams was wide open across the middle.
Bengals are mugging their inside linebackers and making Rodgers try to decide whether they're blitzing or not. Makes it hard to run the ball when both inside linebackers are up at the line of scrimmage.
There's your Pick-6 for Aaron Rodgers. His first since 2009. William Jackson jumps Jordy Nelson and returns 75 yards for a TD.
Now, that is a turnaround. I don't know how the Packers overcome that this half.
Rodgers now has three interceptions this season, one in each game. He had two in his final 10 games last year.
Same way, the Broncos go on the road and lose to the Bills and the Panthers lose to a New Orleans team that was allowing 500 yards a game and Chicago beats Pittsburgh, etc...
So few teams play their starters in the pre-season that you don't really see consistent play until mid-season. Teams are up and down constantly and the Packers are one of them.
That's me, the excuse maker.
