The Cincinnati Bengals jumped out to a 21-7 lead and led 21-14 after three-quarters, but the Green Bay Packers engineered a fourth quarter comeback to pull out a 27-24 victory in overtime on Sunday at Lambeau Field.
The Bengals registered six quarterback sacks in the first half, yet rushed just four defensive lineman most of the game. It didn’t help that the Packers continued to play without starting left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and while Bryan Bulaga (ankle) returned to action at right tackle, he left the game in the second half.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers passed for 313 yards and three touchdowns, but he also threw his third interception in three games, which was returned 75-yards for a touchdown by Cincinnati’s William Jackson. It was just his second career pick-6 and the first since Dec. 7, 2009.
