Sunday’s Pick to Click for the Green Bay Packers

Packers v Bengals

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

The kickoff to Week 3 of the NFL season is hours away. One of the most anticipated matchups will begin in Ohio as the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Green Bay Packers. There will be many playmakers out on the field today but my pick to click for the Packers is wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

In two games thus far this season, Nelson has 196 yards and three touchdowns. He is proving to everyone in the league once again that he can be a dominant receiver and is clearly one of Aaron Rodgers favorite targets.

In my opinion, there is no reason why Nelson shouldn’t have a huge performance today. The Bengals defense under Mike Zimmer is thought to be one of the better defenses in the league. However, in two games this season, they have allowed big time games to receivers.

In Week 1 vs. the Chicago BearsBrandon Marshall had a huge game. Marshall finished with 104 yards and a touchdown. In Week 2 against a very depleted Pittsburgh Steelers offense, the Bengals allowed 78 yards to Emanuel Sanders.

Judging by stats from the first two weeks, I can see Nelson having a huge game today. I expect him to be targeted a lot by Rodgers and expect the Packers offense to spread the field and really challenge this young secondary that the Bengals have.

My final prediction on Nelson is: seven catches, 125 yards and a touchdown.

Can the Packers get the offense going and get a huge road win before the bye week? Can they match the Bengals defense intensity? All of this will be seen in a matter of hours. Expect Nelson to play a big role in answering these questions!

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
