The last time the Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals faced one another, Aaron Rodgers got his first win over the black-and-orange clad franchise. Rodgers threw a rare pick-six in the first half of that contest, but the Packers would fight back from a two-touchdown halftime deficit to earn a hard-fought overtime victory.
That game was a memorable one for its status as an overtime win, but also for how that happened. Rodgers tied the game on a touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson with just 17 seconds remaining on the clock, and then found Geronimo Allison for a 72-yard catch-and-run on a third-and-10 in overtime to set up a game-winning field goal for Mason Crosby.
Packers fans will surely be hoping for a less stressful victory today, when the two teams meet for the first time in four years. However, Green Bay is favored by a very narrow margin today against Joe Burrow and the Bengals, so Vegas sees a close game in the works.
