Early on today, the Packers looked like a train wreck. Before the offense even stepped on the field, the Cincinnati Bengals had a 14-0 lead after a long opening drive for a touchdown and a muffed kickoff return by Jeremy Ross.
The defense showed up after that, though, as they forced four straight turnovers, including a forced fumble returned by M.D. Jennings for the Packers' only touchdown. Three field goals by Mason Crosby, including one right at the end of the half, gave the Packers a 16-14 lead, and they will receive to open the second half.
In injury news, Jermichael Finley suffered a concussion and is out for the day, while James Starks was being looked at on the sidelines at the end of the half.
Here are the Packers' stat leaders:
Aaron Rodgers: 7/14, 64 yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions
James Starks: 14 attempts, 55 yards
Jordy Nelson: 2 catches, 26 yards
James Jones: 2 catches, 22 yards
Mason Crosby: 3/3 Field goals, 1/1 PATs
