Three Packers players sit during national anthem

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis warns players about their job security

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and many top athletes - including Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the team's CEO - have since criticized Trump's comments. The Bengals were making the pass defense, which had rookie backs Kevin King and Josh Jones playing major roles for the first time, look utterly clueless. "I've known Geronimo has been a player for a long time", Rodgers said of Allison, who came to Green Bay as an undrafted free agent from IL last season, and quickly earned a spot on the 53-man roster after starting the season on the practice squad. "It kind of looks like something else we've been doing, and luckily I was able to fit it in". The beginning of the season, there's just no excuses. "So whoever's out there lining up is going to be expected to play well". Some will even go so far as to say that he has earned the title of the greatest National Football League quarterback of all-time, although he still has some work to do to get there by most standards. And Mixon took the backfield lead with a hard-fought 18-62 rushing in addition to securing all three targets for 39 yards, second only to Green among Bengals pass catchers. His game-tying touchdown to Jordy Nelson could not have been thrown into a tighter window. That gets him 66 in his career.

Bengals rookie head coach Dave Shula moved to 0-2 after the 13-9 loss to the Texans while the Packers suffered a 23-34 loss to the Falcons last week. "I would have booed too watching that first half performance".

Whew. That one might've taken a few years off some of the more bratwurst-engorged Green Bay fans, but damn it was a fun finish.

Cobb was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Bengals after not practicing at all this week. "I thought he was tremendous today".

"I thought we got the ball to our guys and got it to them in space and let them make plays", Dalton said about the switch to Lazor. "So at that point our play recognition helped us that much more moving forward", Blake Martinez said.

Things are not as dominant for the Panthers in Carolina though, and in 22 games there, the Panthers have won just 12 compared to the visiting Saints' 10 victories on the road in Carolina. "And 'What can we be good at?' And 'What do we want to be good at?' It starts with the players that you have".

"We felt like we were going to go out there and do our job, and that's exactly what we did". In the previous two games they allowed TDs on a 48-yard slant and a 49-yard QB scramble and some great outings are getting spoiled ...

"I was glad that after we lost the toss ... we had a nice three-and-out there to get us the ball back right away", Rodgers said. The Packers have suffered some significant injuries on defense, including defensive tackle Mike Daniels and linebacker Nick Perry.

Rodgers led the Packers down the field with fewer than 3 minutes left in the game and capped it with a attractive corner dart that Nelson pulled in to pull the game to within one point.

"We need to heal up, drink a lot of water, get a lot of sleep", McCarthy said, referencing the upcoming Thursday night game against the Bears on a short week.
