The Detroit Lions enter the game with the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday with a record of 4-2. An excellent start from a team whose expectations were all over the map. The Lions look to continue their strong start against another tough and surprising opponent from the Queen City. The Bengals also come into the game 4-2 and have a lot to lose after getting off to fast start themselves.
Players To Watch
AJ Green is a promising young receiver that has the Bengal offense humming. Some pundits have even called Green the next best thing to Calvin Johnson. Megatron agrees, as he has been mentoring Green this season, a relationship that was put on hold for this week.
Geno Atkins is another Bengal player drawing comparisons to a Detroit Lions star. The book on Atkins is that he has a mean streak that occasionally crosses the line into dirty. Sound like anyone you know? Nadamukong Suh hasn’t been mentoring Atkins though….at least as far as we know.
Nadamukong Suh gets some of the focus again. Not because of the comparison to Geno Atkins of the Bengals but because the Lions will need to pressure Bengals QB Andy Dalton to keep him from getting the ball to AJ Green.
Calvin Johnson has practiced for three days the first time this season. All indications are that he is healthy and should be a big factor against a tough Bengal defense.
