Packers show what they can overcome in OT victory

Posted September 25, 2017

With a high temperature of 88 degrees predicted for Sunday in Green Bay, the game is expected to be the hottest played at Lambeau Field.

There are two things Aaron Rodgers had never done: win an overtime game and beat the Bengals.

It would be all Bengals from there until intermission. Green caught 10 of 13 targets for 111 yards.

Trailing 21-7 at halftime and down seven impact players due to injuries, it wasn't looking good for the Packers Sunday afternoon against the Bengals. "I've known Geronimo has been a player for a long time", Rodgers said of Allison, who came to Green Bay as an undrafted free agent from IL last season, and quickly earned a spot on the 53-man roster after starting the season on the practice squad. However, tackles Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisherwere can make plays on Sunday.

The Packers could only muster 74 yards of offense in the first half, 30 minutes of Packers football that included five sacks of Rodgers and rare pick-six of the Packers QB. I wasn't going to just go out and say it, but I thought it needed to be said, and that's what I believe in and I think that's what this team believes in.

On the Bengals' opening drive, Dalton hit Green for a 10-yard touchdown on third-and-8. And he did it again while calling the Packers' matchup against the Bengals in Green Bay on Sunday.

The Cincinnati Bengals are "anticipating a bigger role" for running back Joe Mixon going forward.

Randy Bullock, who missed a 48 yard try earlier, knocked through the 46 yard attempt giving Cincinnati a 24-17 lead with 3:46 to play. Through three games, Bennett has 11 catches for 102 yards. They've got a short turn around for those bodies to recover, they've got the Bears at Lambeau on Thursday night. On third and six, Dalton was rushed and flipped a pass to tight end Tyler Kroft but Jones hung on for the tackle to force the punt. Aaron Rodgers backed up and set to throw on a free play thanks to the Bengals jumping offsides. The resulting field goal kept it a one-score game and gave Rodgers and Co. plenty of time to work with. It's big. We want to be able to hold our own and as I was saying early unfortunately that first ten, fifteen scrip they kind of marched down the field and that's something we'll have to address. Scoring just 33 total points in their first three games, the Bengals' season is quickly getting away from them.

Rodgers posted the photo of himself and receivers Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams during a break in practice. Mike Glennon completed 15 of 22 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown against and interception. Ty Montgomery only rushed for 35 yards but added eight receptions out of the backfield. Mixon led Cincinnati with 62 yards on 18 carries. Green Bay got a gritty effort from its shorthanded "D, ' including strong showings from rookie defensive backs Kevin King and Josh Jones".
