The Cincinnati Bengals went out this offseason and added a couple more weapons for quarterback Andy Dalton in the draft by selecting Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert and North Carolina running back Giovani Bernard.
But no matter what changes the Bengals make, the one constant is that A.J. Green is going to be very dangerous.
Green is off to a very good start to the 2013 season, hauling in five passes for 129 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Bengals jumped out to a 14-10 halftime lead over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
The Georgia product’s second touchdown of the game covered 45 yards on a play in which he toasted the Bears secondary.
Robbie Gould added a 58-yard field goal shortly before the half to pull the Bears within four at the break.
The Bengals got off to a very slow start when quarterback Andy Dalton threw an early interception, but there’s nothing like a 97-yard drive to build confidence, which is what the third-year quarterback marched the Bengals on to tie the game at seven in the first quarter.
Cincinnati is looking to make a statement and prove that they are the favorites in the AFC North. They are also looking to snap a streak in which they have lost four of their last five season openers.
