Packers come back in 27-24 overtime win over Bengals

Packers come back in 27-24 overtime win over Bengals

"We expect to play well every time we're out there", Rodgers said.

For only the second time in his career, Aaron Rodgers had an interception returned for a touchdown when he tried to hit Jordy Nelson on a short out pattern but Williams Jackson stepped in front for the pick and the 75 yard return for a score that made it 21-7 Bengals.

Not only did he win his first overtime game, he also has now defeated every single National Football League team, other than the Packers, of course. But they couldn't finish the Packers off in the second half. And then hold on defense in overtime, which they did.

And, hey, we've got some - though not very much - of next week to focus on how Green Bay can/might/should/will hopefully fix those issues before they face the Chicago Bears on Thursday night at Lambeau Field.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback has his defense to thank - or blame - for that.

Jones, who went 28 picks after King at No. 61 out of North Carolina State, was impressive during the offseason but didn't play a single snap on defense in the September 10 opener against Seattle. Brice was inactive in this game so enter Jones and he was brilliant. The 49ers meanwhile suffered a third straight loss to drop to 0-3, and their season is immediately on the brink. He had 12 total tackles.

Cincinnati challenged the Packers' defense with misdirection runs and quick passes. His TFL came on the first play of overtime. Green caught 10 of 13 targets for 111 yards. It ignited the offense and drive that ended in a touchdown. He also forced a grounding penalty.

Don't forget Puerto Rico
"I was watching the news this morning, and there was a lady in Puerto Rico and she said please don't forget about us", Lt. Melisa Franzen of Edina, who was born in Puerto Rico, urged people to help with relief efforts in any way they can.


Prudence, politics force Fed to begin shedding USA bonds
ASIA'S DAY: Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 added almost 2.0 percent to finish at 20,299.38, coming off a national holiday on Monday. About 5.54 billion shares changed hands on USA exchanges on, compared with the 6.03 billion average for the last 20 sessions.


Best and worst from Patriots' victory over Saints
The Patriots tight end left New England's game against the Saints in New Orleans in the second half with a groin injury. Defending champions the Patriots suffered a 42-27 loss in the opener while the Saints were downed 19-29 by the Vikings.


Now retired, the former Dallas Cowboys signal caller continues to impress with his new-found play-calling duties for CBS.

Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal with 6:26 left in overtime, set up by Rodgers' 72-yard pass to Geronimo Allison, and the Green Bay Packers (2-1) rallied to beat Cincinnati 27-24 on Sunday. "Our guys remain committed to winning football games".

Luckily, the Packers also signed former San Francisco 49ers superstar #Ahmad Brooks to come in as a reserve. Lawson had two of the Bengals' five sacks.

Two young defensive stars on the day, second-year linebacker Blake Martinez and rookie safety Josh Jones, made big tackles on Cincinnati's OT series. Anthony appeared in 19 games for San Antonio last season and averaged 1.3 points per game. Davante Adams had another.

G-MAN: With Cobb out with a chest injury, Allison got more snaps. "Finishing. That's the most important thing".

On the ground, Montgomery had 35 yards on 12 carries. It'll be an endurance test, in addition to challenge for the training staffs to get these two banged-up teams prepared. The former undrafted prospect from IL darted and weaved his way to 72 yards in all to get inside the Cincinnati 10, setting up Mason Crosby's game-winning 27-yard chip shot. "Good plays, bad plays, you've got to move on to the next".
