Green Bay Packers
There weren’t a lot of obvious game of the week picks for week three. There aren’t many division rivalry games that are likely to mean a lot in the standings at season’s end. And it’s too early to say who is matching up in a game that will have playoff tiebreaker ramifications. So I ended up going with this game because for a couple reasons. First, I think the Bengals and the Packers are both playoff teams and, very possibly, both division champions. But secondly, I was piqued by this match-up because of the potentially psychological ramifications for the Bengals.
For many years, Cincy was at the bottom of the barrel of the NFL. Marvin Lewis has taken them to a level of respectability now, with two consecutive playoff appearances, but I don’t think many have taken them seriously as a Super Bowl contender, particularly as they’ve fought to get out of the shadow of Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers got into it on the sidelines during the second quarter of the Green Bay Packers’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and the head coach could be seen giving Rodgers the business.
Maybe there was a disagreement about play calling or whatever, but Rodgers definitely said something his coach wasn’t feeling.
H/T The Big Lead
The Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy had a bit of a heated argument on the sidelines during their game against the Bengals on Sunday. No word on what the disagreement was about, but you shouldn’t read too much into it as these things happen all the time. It is noteworthy to see Aaron show this kind of emotion though.
Five things we learned from the Green Bay Packers' 34-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3 of the 2013 regular season:
1. Difficult for Packers to win when Rodgers doesn't play well

Cory Jennerjohn (@CoryJennerjohn):
This game has all the makings of not being too pretty. The Packers are starting James Starks for the first time since Nov. 25, 2012 and just his fifth start overall. To make matters worse, this is the second-best defensive line the Packers will see all year. Aaron Rodgers will stay upright long enough to cut through the secondary and Mason Crosby...
You lead by 14, fall behind by 20 and then come back in the fourth quarter to win by four.
