One of the great things about being a sports writer and covering the NFL, is being able to write about teams that excite me.No, I am not talking about the Jacksonville Jaguars this time.The Cincinnati Bengals excite me. The Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers excite me. When two great tastes… oh, sorry wrong commercial.Seriously, when one of the best teams in the league currently is playing against arguably the team with the best upside in the league, you get the feeling this is a huge game all around.We all know what Rodgers, the modern-day Johnny Unitas, can do on the field with his host of complementary receivers. We all can see what Andy Dalton has the ability to do with A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu and two great tight ends at his disposal.

First, I think the Bengals and... Game Predictions: Week 3 Packers at Bengals
