C.J. Uzomah: Bengals will put ‘league on notice’ with win vs. Packers

The Cincinnati Bengals are off to a fast start, however their three wins this season have come at the expense of struggling clubs.

Tight end C.J. Uzomah said the Bengals (3-1) can make a statement on Sunday when they host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (3-1).

“It’s the message that we’re here,” Uzomah said on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Friday. “This is another huge opportunity for us. … They’re coming to the jungle. They’re coming to our house, and we expect a big crowd to kind of rattle (Rodgers) a little bit as much as we can rattle him. Everything helps in our favor playing at home.

“We get this win, and we put the league on notice that we’re here. This isn’t a 3-1 that just happens to be 3-1. At this point, it’s a 4-1 that just beat the Packers, who are on a hot streak, who are on a run and have one of the hottest quarterbacks to play the game. That’s what we’re after, that’s our goal, and that’s our mentality.”

Cincinnati split its first two games before posting a 24-10 win in Pittsburgh on Sept. 26 and a 24-21 victory over Jacksonville four days later. Uzomah reeled in two touchdown receptions in the win over the Jaguars.

The Bengals are bidding for their first 4-1 record since the 2018 season. The promise of a strong season quickly faded that year as they lost nine of their remaining 11 games.

Cincinnati went 4-11-1 last season.
