Week 3: at Green Bay Packers

All WR vs GB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Andy Dalton has had a very rough start to the season as his Bengals offense has yet to score a touchdown in either of their first two games. Dalton has been extremely ineffective, completing only 54.5% of his passes with four interceptions while taking eight sacks behind a struggling offensive line. In large part to this poor offensive line play against the pass rush, Dalton has had very little time to find any of his receivers. Dalton made some big throws against the Texans last week while protecting the ball without any turnovers, but he still made a startling number of bad reads and overthrows. Dalton was not helped a ton by his receivers, being forced to throw it away five times as his targets could not get open. A.J. Green led the team with six catches on eight targets for 67 yards. Dalton has targeted the tight end position on only 7% of attempts this season--a league-low. This is not good for Tyler Eifert, who hauled in three receptions for 42 yards last week after only catching one ball for one yard in Week 1. The Packers defense was lit up for 34 points last week. Their passing defense held last year's MVP Matt Ryan at bay, statistically, allowing him to pass for only 252 yards and one touchdown. However, Ryan did what exactly what he needed to do as the Falcons relied heavily on their rushing attack due to their early lead. The Packers secondary still looked good on the pass plays they did have to defend though. Rookie cornerback Kevin King was a shining star for the Packers as he didn't allow a single reception when targeted, in addition to defending a pass in what should have been a mismatch against Julio Jones. The Packers pass rush was very strong last week as well, dropping Matt Ryan three times for 29 negative yards. Clay Matthews applied solid pressure as he led the team with 1.5 sacks. Safety Kentrell Brice and cornerback Davon House both had to leave the game with injuries last week, both neither appeared on the team's injury report thus far this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs HOU (7 / 4 / 30 / 0 rec)

LaFell played extensively and was generally solid. He made a diving catch on a short gain. He was open for what should have been a 20-yard pickup, but Dalton misfired badly.

2017 Week 1 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)

LaFell had a quiet day, but it was a positive sign that Dalton looked his way twice in the end zone. On the first play, Dalton looked for LaFell in the middle of the end zone, but linebacker C.J. Mosely sunk underneath and made a leaping interception. A couple drives later, LaFell was open in the end zone and Dalton attempted to get it to him but the ball was tipped out of his hand from behind before he could get the throw off.
