Aaron Rodgers Finally Wins First Career Overtime Game In Victory Over Bengals

Vera Richards | 26 September, 2017, 00:12

The Packers started sluggishly in the first half, causing them to gradually sink into a 21-7 hole through two quarters. With the Bengals giving their own response to President Donald Trump's comments about athletes protesting the National Anthem.

Rookie safety Josh Jones had an excellent training camp and preseason after being the Packers second round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. There's a lot more that could be said about this situation, but for now back to the game at hand. Bengals CB William Jackson's interception return for a touchdown was the first against Rodgers in 4,502 attempts.

In Aaron Rodgers first career overtime victory, he finished 28/42 passing for 313 yards and three touchdowns.

Surprisingly, the Bengals have had recent success against the Packers. The defense got to Rodgers for six sacks, including 2 1/2 for linebacker Carl Lawson, but the Packers' protection shored up after halftime. It marked Green Bay's first overtime victory since a 19-13 win at Denver on October 29, 2007. With the Bengals offense retreating back into largely unproductive form. Green in the end zone for a ten-yard touchdown. Dalton also has only a 54.54 percent completion rate and had one of the worst performances in quarterback history in the Bengals opening game against the Baltimore Ravens. The only opportunity the Bengals would have to score was a 48-yard field goal.

Here are Arthur Arkush's five takeaways from the late-afternoon Week 3 action.

With 98 scrimmage yards in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers, Hunt, who has 355 scrimmage yards in his first two games, would surpass SID BLANKS of the 1964 Houston Oilers (452 yards) for the second-most scrimmage yards by a player in his first three career games. It's a drive that will haunt the Bengals, though. The Packers again turned to kicker Mason Crosby to end the game. Atlanta is off to a 3-0 start, and quarterback Matt Ryan seems intent on leading his team to another memorable season, even though they are supposedly battling a Super Bowl hangover. McCarron has played in nine NFL games with four starts, including the playoffs, after joining the Bengals from Alabama as a two-time BCS national-championship quarterback, the victor of the 2013 Maxwell Award and the runner-up for the 2013 Heisman Trophy. Most expected the Bears to lose handily, as they have done so often in the John Fox era. They are 8.5-point favorites in this game, and they should roll past their opponents.

Head coach Ron Rivera could have a hard time getting his Panthers on track this season.
