The Packers defeat the Bengals 27 to 24 in OT

NFL: Packers face struggling Bengals

Wide receiver Randall Cobb and tackle David Bakhtiari are the only scratches on offense.

Aaron Rodgers connected with Jordy Nelson for a 3-yard touchdown pass with 17 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 24 with the Cincinnati Bengals. The one today did and it put the Bengals up 21-7 over the Packers midway through the second quarter.

The warmest previous game at Lambeau Field was an 84-degree contest against the Los Angeles Rams on October 6, 1963.

Remarkably, it was Rodgers' first overtime win.

That's a big ask on the road, at Lambeau Field, but if a Bengals win is in the cards, the defense, the running game and a big play or two from Green will be the ingredients.

The Bengals had a chance to extend their lead, but safety Josh Jones sacked Dalton on third down and Randy Bullock was wide right from 48 yards.

The Packers raised their record to 2-1, while the Bengals fell to 0-3.

Packers reported that there would be certain performances to watch on the field when the team plays. The defense forced the Bengals to punt on their first possession, leaving the door open for a 72-yard catch and run from WR Geronimo Allison and a Mason Crosby field goal to seal the win.

It appeared this might be a shootout early as the Bengals moved the ball down the field and scored first on an Andy Dalton pass to A.J.

In Nelson's absence, Davante Adams thrived (eight grabs, 99 yards and a score), but the Packers struggled to keep up with Matt Ryan and one of the finest offenses in football. But with two best offensive lineman and some other key players missing, Rodgers will need to take his game to another level. It was against the New Orleans Saints on September 10, 1978. Opponents threw 18 touchdowns and just seven interceptions at home, while throwing just 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in Green Bay.
