Monday Night Football Preview

By: Kevin Luckerson

POINTSHAVERS.COM 08/11/08 -?Information concerning tonight's Monday Night Football Game between the Green Bay Packers and the Cincinnati Bengals has been kept under wraps for the most part. Green Bay Packers RB Ryan Grant and Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Johnson are both questionable for tonight's Monday Night Football Game.

The Packers opened as 3 point favorites at home; and, the line has not moved much at all today.

The consensus opinion among NFL experts is that the Green Bay Packers need a verteran?quarterback to become the backup for starting quarterback,?Aaron Rodgers. Right now, University of Louisville?Rookie Quarterback Brian Brohm and LSU Rookie Quarterback Matt Flynn are battling for the Number 2 Quarterback Spot on the Green Bay Packers Roster.

Both Matt Flynn and Brian Brohm have looked average at best during training camp.

And most Green Bay Packers insiders are giving Brian Brohm the edge over Matt Flynn in the quarterback battle. However, Aaron Rodgers has said that even though Brian Brohm has a better arm,?Matt Flynn is?a more complete quarterback who has better judgement and makes very few mistakes.

Bengals starting quarterback Carson Palmer will more than likely only play only?one series tonight in order to prevent serious injury. That means that 4th year Bengals quarterback?Ryan Fitzpatrick?(Harvard University)?and 2nd Year quarterback Jeff Rowe (University of Nevada-Reno)?will see a lot of action for the Cincinnati Bengals tonight.

Fitzpatrick is decent, while Rowe is sporting an upside that will never be realized at the NFL level.

But we think that the real story tonight will be the Green Bay Packers running attack which should absolutely dominate the Bengals defense. And even though Green Bay Packers Running Back Ryan Grant will not play because of injuryPsychology Articles, the Packers have a stable of quality running backs that will see playing time tonight -- most notably second string running back Brandon Jackson.?

Take?Green Bay Packers -3 (-110) vs Cincinnati Bengals
