Five Things the Packers Need to Accomplish to Beat the Bengals

M. S.Correspondent ISeptember 19, 2009

Opening day could not have started more similarly for the Packers and Bengals.  The final minutes and seconds could not have been more different. 

Both teams were locked in close games against the Bears and Broncos until the last few minutes saw the Packers pull ahead on a touchdown pass and the Bengals lose on a tipped, 87-yard miracle touchdown in the last seconds of the game.

Because of the consequences, the Bengals stand at 0-1 on the season and are hungry for a win that was taken away from them last week.  For the Packers, they look to continue their hot start on defense and try to regain their pre-season form on offense. 

The Packers are favored to win the game by more than a touchdown, but the Bengals have high-powered weapons on offense that could keep them in the game. 

Here are five things the Packers are going to have to accomplish if they want to move to 2-0 when they take on the Bengals in Lambeau Field on Sunday.
