Former Bengals running back Cedric Benson is looking forward to going up against his former team this week when he suits up as a member of the Green Bay Packers.

“It’s going to be fun, to say the least,” said Benson per Cincinnati.com.  “It’ll be good just to go against that defense. I’ve seen all those guys coming in, I’ve seen them work together, so it’ll be fun to put a licking on them.”

I think Benson will give the Packers the running game they’re looking for.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he rushes for over 1,000 yards as well this season.
